Forty-Eight teams...24 from Georgia and 24 from Florida will commence together for some good old fashion Southern Braggin' Rights!!!  The discussion roles on year after year from one forum to the next...from one blog spot to another...what state in the Deep South plays the best baseball...? Well it is officially "Put Up or Shut Up Time"!!!
 
On April 16-17, 2016, the South's top teams will square off in the 9U - 14U Triple-A class on the middle grounds of Valdosta in the Georgia / Florida Showdown.
 
This event uses a truly unique format with each team playing four (4) pool games against teams from the other state.  The top two (2) teams from each pool will advance to single elimination.  This format guarantees each team will play a minimum of four (4) games and half the teams will play at least five (5) games, weather permitting.
