This tournament series has been developed specifically for 14U teams competitive teams (AAA/Major) where there is not many options for them to play in a 'showcase' style tournament.  We feel it is important to provided tournaments based around High School preparation.
Teams will play 4 scheduled games.  without seeding or moving bracket play.  There are several benefits to this type of format such as knowing exactly when play (even on Sundays), higher focus to play concentrated window of time eliminating long down times between games, no all day Sundays, and every team plays the exact amount of games. A better schedule means a better experience for the athletes and their fans.
Other benefits of this style of tournament
  • Pitcher friendly
  • Player development opportunity
