Since 2010, Triple Crown has called Central Washington "home" for the annual TCS NW Baseball Series Season Opener! Don't miss your own opportunity to participate in this early season tournament in dry weather conditions. Enjoy the mountain fields and sink your teeth into the "Apple Capital of the World!" Age groups 8u-14u will get the superior organization and communication of Triple Crown Sports (rain or shine) and invites to the World Series in the Roaring Fork Valley or Vail Valley of Colorado (9s, 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s, and 14s) later this summer.
Triple Crown Baseball Divisions:
Division 1: This is our most competitive division which may include "higher level" teams and is also open to any team that wants to compete.
Division 2: When you see Division 2 (or D2) after the age group that indicates a bracket designed for mid-level teams. Division 2 is similar to the second-tier divisions you see in national sanctioning organizations.
Here is how Triple Crown compares with other sanctioning bodies. However, we always encourage teams to play up. Division 1= Major or Upper AAA, Division 2= AAA or AA
*** Triple Crown will use pool play results to seed teams into separately awarded brackets based on total number of teams in the age group***
