In 2016, we introduced the Amateur Baseball Championships (ABC), one of the nation’s premier summer events. The ABC was widely successful in 2019 prior to COVID-19, and we are excited to expand the ABC into 2 seperate events for 2021. This 64 team Event will be one of the top 17u events nationwide. This 5 game double pool play format will start Wednesday morning and culminate Sunday evening. Teams will start in pools of 4. All Teams will play 3 pool play games Wednesday/Thursday. Teams will then be re-pooled into either a Gold Pool, Silver Pool, or Bronze Pool. Teams will each play 2 more pool play games Friday/Saturday. Pool winners will advance to a single elimination winner take all bracket! In 2019, the ABC Series saw over 200 schools in attendance. Don't miss your chance to play in this top 17u event in 2021!
All teams will start out in a pool of 4, with teams playing 3 pool play games before being re-pooled into Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
GOLD - Each pool winner (#1 Seeds) will automatically advance to the 3-team gold re-seeded pools. The Invite Gold will include 8 pools of 3 teams, with 14 #1 seeds and remaining gold teams filled by the top 10 #2 seeds. Each pool winner from the gold/re-seeded pools will advance to an 8-team championship bracket. All gold ABC (pool) games will play the gold ABC extra inning rule (1st extra inning = California, 2nd extra inning = Texas). See Bullpen rules for questions regarding the extra inning rules.
SILVER - The remaining #2 Seeds and all 14 #3 Seeds will be placed in a Silver Pool, where they will play 2 more pool play games. The 4 pool winners from these re-seeded pools will play in a single elimination tournament to crown the Silver Champ.
BRONZE - Due to rain, format has been changed to bronze bracket instead of 3-team re-pools. If teams lose their first bronze bracket game and want an additional consolation game, please contact us ASAP.
NOTE: All of the re-seeded pool winners that are advancing to the bracket will be seeded based on all 5 games!
