Event History:
The Travel Sports Baseball World Series is the only Select Baseball World Series in Texas that has grown every year in team numbers. We cannot guarantee the number of teams in each division, but our history says it will always be bigger than last year! In 2017 we had 221 teams participate. The event has been based in Grapevine, Texas since 2010.

AA Division Requirements
AA Teams must be "AA" in all organizations when we draw the brackets.
All teams will register in the Open Division, prior to drawing brackets we will separate teams into AA and Open Divisions based on their current team classification in Travel Sports Baseball and other prominent travel baseball organizations. Teams that participate in the AA Division will be required to have 4 or less AAA players and no Majors players. AA teams that have more than the allowed number of out of class players will be required to contact Travel Sports Baseball 10 days prior to the age divisions Opening Day to declare their "Open Status" and have their classification changed to AAA based on their roster and not the team’s current classification. One week prior to Opening Day of a team’s division, Travel Sports Baseball will confirm all team classifications and separate the teams into AA and Open divisions. Afterwards the pool schedules will be drawn and all classification changes outside of Travel Sports Baseball will not be considered. All pool play games will take place on Saturday and Sunday, pool play schedules will be released Friday morning.


Pool Play, Bracket Play and Seeding for the World Series Tournament
All divisions will be seeded based on their Travel Sports Baseball team points composite score. Teams will be scheduled 3 pool play games on Saturday and Sunday. Based on the results of pool play in each division teams will be seeded into the World Series double elimination style tournament. We will split brackets once in the Open division only (adding a AAA division). There will be NO "if" game.
