Midwest Sports Productions Announces New Partnership with Jack Link’s For 2019


Shawnee, Kan. – Midwest Sports Productions (MSP), the world’s largest fastpitch and baseball event company, is excited to announce the signing of a new partnership agreement for 2019 with Jack Link’s Protein Snacks, the global leader in meat snacking.

As a result of the agreement, Jack Link’s will become the title sponsor of the May 3-5, 2019, baseball tournament. The Feed Your Wild Side Presented by Jack Link’s tournament will be held at Mid-America Sports Complex in Shawnee, Kan.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with Jack Link’s for this uniquely fun tournament,” said Jeff Wallace, director of business development at MSP. “Jack Link’s passion for quality and innovation falls in line with MSP’s goal of creating memorable, world class experiences at the ballpark. This partnership just made sense to us and we are looking forward to a fun weekend at the ballpark.”

In addition to the naming rights of the tournament, Jack Link’s will also have a retail store on site during the event and championship prize packages for each division of the tournament which will include packs of beef jerky, a team award for the head coach and a Real Tree Camo hat for each player. Sasquatch himself will also pose with the winning teams for their championship photo.

“We are always looking for ways to bring Jack Link’s out to the consumer as well as introduce new products to the public, so this is a great opportunity to share our legendary beef jerky, bites, strips and steaks with all the players and fans at the tournament,” said Jim Siekiera, national sales manager for Jack Link’s Beef Jerky. “The days at the ballpark can be long and coaches and players are looking for a way to get an edge and keep their energy up. Our snacks are a good source of protein and the perfect pick-me-up for those between game moments when you’re feeling tired and looking for a boost.”

Registration is now open for the Feed Your Wild Side Presented by Jack Link’s tournament as well as the entire lineup of MSP baseball and fastpitch spring and summer events. To learn more about MSP or to enter a team in a tournament, visit
