Wooden Bat Cla

Bob Wagner’s Annual Wooden Bat Classic uses Fort Myers’ original major league complex, historic Terry Park Stadium along with its three adjacent fields, to host the teams and individuals playing in the event. The Wooden Bat Classic is played during the 4th week of January and designed for players who are 30 years of age and older. The next Wooden Bat Classic will take place Sunday, January 21st through Saturday January 27th, 2024.

The Cy Young division will begin play on Sunday, January 21st and the Red Oldham divisions will begin play Monday, January 22nd. The Cy Young teams are geared towards the younger WBC players while the Red Oldham is for the older WBC players. Players of any age can play in either division. All teams are guaranteed a minimum of seven 7-inning games during the week (weather permitting), round robin and playoffs combined. The championship game for the Cy Young division is tentatively scheduled for Friday, January 26th. The Red Oldham division championship games will be played Saturday, January 27th.

Bob Wagner's WBC is a proud sponsor of the Tri-County Challenger Baseball League and is the official charity of the WBC. Since WBC's inception in 1997, it has been a tradition for players to make monetary contributions to provide much needed uniforms and equipment to this worthwhile program. The Challenger Divison of Little League is a program for boys and girls, who, due to physical and mental challenges, are not mainstreamed into regular Little League.
