Tournament Qualifications



World Series Qualification: All teams must play in one qualifying tournament.

Recreational World Series Qualification: All recreation teams must present an official USGF Roster, signed by the commissioner or president of their league, verifying that each player on the roster was registered and played in their league. All recreational team's players have to be 100% from their own local league. The only exception is if there are adjacent cities or communities that do not have enough teams to create a competitive multi-team age division and they participate in an inter-league schedule. Players from these adjacent cities or communities that inter-league together can be included in a league's all-star team roster selection. 

***Note: in past years there have been teams who choose to play in the world series but, the league does not recognize them as their official all-star team. This unofficial team is allowed to participate in the USGF Recreational World Series, I understand in these particular situations that often times there are some hard feeling. However, the only qualification is that all the players on the team either played in their league or an inter-leaguing team within their league. An administrative board cannot stop players whose parents enrolled them in the league.

Batters: each team can bat up to 12 batters for pool and tournament games.

Parents/fans are welcome to keep scoreboards.
