The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund is excited to announce the Fifth Annual Taylor Emmons Memorial Classic hosted by The Out-of-Door Academy. Several exceptional baseball programs from Florida's west coast will compete in the Emmons Classic in hopes of capturing the championship title. In addition to great baseball being played, the lure of the event will be the Home Run Derby featuring local high school baseball prospects on Wednesday evening. No other high school tournament in the area can compete with the combination of high-profile athletes and tournament extras, which will make this event one to remember.

We invite you and your family to join us at this year’s event as a sponsor, donor, or spectator. Your support will help provide opportunities for students from diverse social and economic backgrounds to experience an independent, college preparatory education at The Out-of-Door Academy’s Upper School. The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund was created in the wake of one young man’s tragic death, but its future promises to carry on his spirit in the lives of students who would not otherwise have the means to attend this independent school. Taylor Emmons’ short life was full of appreciation, gratitude, kindness, and accomplishment. In his honor, we ask for your support.

Please support this fun-filled, family, baseball event for the entire family.
