Triple Crown Washington Baseball Divisions of Play: Division 1: This is our most competitive division which includes "Select / Elite" 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 teams that are not yet ready to compete with top 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
