If the winner or runner-up has already qualified then the berth will be passed down. Teams with a losing record are not eligible for the passed-down berth. All teams can play in the North Carolina Play Offs as long as they play in a minimum of 6 NC USSSA tournaments. More than likely each team will be awarded a berth at an event. When Awarded a berth you have 48 hours to accept it and if you do not then you lose the berth.

North Carolina State Tournament: North Carolina Play Off Tournaments determines where each team will play in the State Tournament. The Top two teams in each class advance to the A, AA, AAA, Major State Tournament. All other teams advance to the Global Sports Baseball State Tournament.

Tournament Formats Defined

Our events will consist of two different formats. We will offer Open Format, and a Separate Class Format. When Events are combined to be an Open Format with Multiple Classes of Play we tend to offer a Split Bracket Format where the higher seeded teams go in the Upper Flight and the Lower Seeded teams go in a Lower Flight. Awards are issued in both Flights.

 

Awards

Our awards consist of several different options such as trophies, game jerseys, shoes, Warm up jackets, Tshirts, Hoodies and more. If the Team would rather have trophies instead of our other gifts we can make arrangements for that as well.
