Daytime Jerry and Cyndi Play Cornhole

Posted: Updated:

It's hard to think of a game played largely in bars and outside RVs at football games as a sport, but that's only because it's relatively new.

The American Cornhole Organization formed in 2005 to govern the pros, hold tournaments and keep track of international rankings. Players and teams travel to Ohio every summer for their shot at a piece of $50,000 in prize money.

Locally, most every cornhole tourney has money on the line. On a random Wednesday night, one team at Martin's game during Bright House Field's Happy Hour took home $90. Local weekend tourneys offer up to $1,000.
