After decades of success in providing youth baseball teams with competitive and intriguing tournaments, Triple Crown Sports has flexed its muscle and connections around the country to create a new championship event that will challenge the best programs in the nation.
The US Club Nationals will be held July 19-23, 2016, at the East Cobb Sports Complex in Marietta, GA. TCS has offered exclusive invitations to 16 of the country’s most highly skilled and rigorously organized baseball clubs to participate, where each club will send 4-6 teams, ages 9u-14u.
Teams compete in their division for the age-group title, but the final standings in all divisions will be factored into determining the TCS Organization National Champion.
This championship features a five-game minimum; Opening Ceremonies and Skills Challenges will be held July 19; final games and our Award Ceremony Banquet are slated for July 23.
Congratulations to these 11 baseball clubs who have accepted their invitation into this exclusive event. We expect to have the remaining spots filled soon:
6-4-3 DP Baseball – Marietta, GA
Beaver Valley Baseball – Ellwood City, PA
Dallas Tigers – Dallas, TX
East Cobb Astros – Marietta, GA
Five Star Tigers – Jacksonville, FL
Mac-n-Seitz Baseball – Kansas City, MO
Motor City Hit Dogs – Rochester Hills, MI
Mound Time Baseball – Portland, OR
Richmond Braves – Richmond, VA
SBA Canes – Matthews, NC
Showtime Baseball – Puyallup, WA
“The momentum and excitement that is being generated from this event is off the charts. Triple Crown Sports is working in partnership with each of these organizations to build a great event concept into something special,” said Joe Santilli, TCS National Director of Baseball. “This is a great way to give recognition to whole clubs, as opposed to individual teams. All of these baseball organizations have remained a steady force in travel ball for a number of years, and many have been strong customers of Triple Crown Sports.
“This event will give them an opportunity to show up and compete in every single game against top level competition from across the country. I would expect the demand to grow quickly for this event; however, our intentions will be to keep invitations exclusive to the highly organized and highly skilled clubs.”
