Game days and locations:

We will be using two locations for games this weekend. It is our desire that you enjoy a fun and relaxing weekend of competitive baseball, rather than driving all over town so no teams will be switching complexes during the tournament.

-All 16u, 13u, 12u, 11u and 10u games will be played at the Hillsboro Stadium/ Gordon Faber Complex.

-All 14u games will be played at Bond field at Pacific University.

Both locations will have NW Nations Staff present at all times and will be professionally maintained throughout the tournament.

Directions to the fields can be found by scrolling to the bottom of this page.


Weather: We will make every effort to play all tournament games, we want to play them as much as you do! If we were to experience weather that was determined by the field staff, tournament director or umpires to be severe enough to pose a player safety concern, we will delay games until conditions improve, cancel games or cancel the entire tournament if necessary. The ultimate decision on whether we can begin play or continue play is made by the parks department.

You can call the NW Nations Weather line for updates: (503) 799-5737. Please restrict the calls to one person per team so that everyone can get through if needed.

We will also update the status on the game schedule page of this website. Please Click Here. and also through the tournament app. Initial updates are recorded at 6:45 AM each day, subsequent updates are added as needed. Unfortunately, those playing the first games of the day are at a disadvantage because we may not have the information on the field status updated before you must leave. Sometimes it is a "game time" decision. PLEASE CONSIDER ALL GAMES PLAYABLE UNLESS UPDATES INDICATE OTHERWISE.

Weather related decisions will typically be made the day of the scheduled games. We will not make any decisions prior to the day of the scheduled games unless the park notifies us that the fields are shut down.

Parking: Parking is allowed in designated parking areas only. 

RV Parking: Sorry, overnight parking is not allowed at the parks.

Game Score Updates: We will be updating game scores throughout the day on the tournament app and on our website as games are completed. Please click here for updated game scores.

Sunday Bracket Schedule: As seeding games are completed we will be placing teams into brackets on the tournament app and on our website. You will be able to find the Sunday game times by clicking here.

Scheduling: NW Nations makes every attempt to keep the tournament on schedule, on occasion due to circumstances this is not possible. Directors reserve the right to change any game time, playing field or dates or to make other changes necessary to conduct the tournament.

When circumstances arise where we can start a game early throughout the day, teams must be prepared to start up to 30 minutes before their scheduled game time, this is to keep the tournament moving along at all times.
