History

For over 30 years the Eastern Women’s Baseball Conference has provided opportunities for women and girls to play baseball. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the EWBC works hard every year to fulfill its mission of preparing women and girls for regional, national and international competition. With this mind, the Diamond Classic was started.  In 2004 the first annual Diamond Classic was held. Through the years, the tournament has grown into one of the premier women’s tournaments in the country. 

Pre-2009 is being researched. If you have any information about any of the tournaments please contact the EWBC.
