2021 Teams Attending (Pending Covid19 updated guidelines)
Dear 2021 Wenatchee Valley Season Opener ENTRIES/Penciled In teams,
First of all, thank you guys for being so patient over the past year with the unpredictability of playing tournament baseball. Believe me, we want to get back to the kids being on the field safely, and as soon as possible. The above link outlines the WA state definitions of “competitions” (group gathering) regulations. Currently, Wenatchee and the surrounding areas are in a PHASE 2, Moderate Risk status that prohibits tournament play. The facilities that support our event in the community of Wenatchee, E. Wenatchee, and Chelan Co. have communicated in some cases that the event cannot be facilitated because of these guidelines. Also, because the event relies on many different facility factions (county, school district, and municipal), the changes in high school seasons combined with local facility demand and local play has made it difficult to access many of the fields we have used in the past. Our program is designed for TOURNAMENT PLAY. Because of the above circumstances, we have made a difficult decision to cancel the event.
Your choices of how to address your entry into this event are as follows:
Please call if you have questions or respond by e-mail with how your team would like to proceed. Thank you.

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
*** Triple Crown reserves the right to combine divisions at any point***
