Ray Schalk’s Holiday Team Tournament

Sponsored by baseball great Ray Schalk, this four-game event brought the nation’s finest teams to Chicago during the first week of the New Year. Initially staged at Beverly Recreation, in 1942 the Schalk moved to Evergreen Towers Bowl in suburban Evergreen Park. The tournament was suspended after 1966.
