Congratulations on an outstanding season and welcome to the 2017 USSSA Baseball 8MP thru 14 'A' World Series. Your tournament host will be Kansas City Sports and it will be our goal to create an experience that the players, coaches and families will remember for the rest of their lives. The tournament will be played at the Fountain Bluff Sports Complex in Liberty, Missouri on July 13-17, 2017.
The USSSA Baseball program will use the "Pool-Play" format in its World Series. Teams will be placed in pools where they will play a round robin within their pool. Teams will then be placed in a Championship bracket following pool play or a Consolation bracket. The exact format of the tournament, e.g., number of pools, number of teams in each pool, etc., will be set by the Tournament Director following USSSA Baseball guidelines and being approved by the USSSA Baseball National Committee.
Your team must enter online at www.usssa.com on or before July 1, 2017. Your State Director will need to approve your entry to confirm your team has met all eligibility requirements.
