Congratulations on an outstanding season and welcome to the 2017 USSSA Baseball Junior World Series.  Your host will do everything possible to create an experience that the players, coaches, and families will remember for a life time!  Teams do not enter the World Series with the host; entry MUST be done online at USSSA.com.  Entry deadline is June 10, 2017.  The World Series will be played at Heritage Park in McDonough, GA and Moseley Park in Stockbridge, GA (Henry County - South Metro Atlanta), June 21 - 25, 2017.

USSSA Baseball uses a pool play / bracket play format in its World Series. Teams will be seeded in pools by USSSA Points where they will play a round robin.  Following pool play all teams will be re-seeded into double elimination championship brackets based on pool play results.  The exact format, (i.e.; number of pools, quantity of teams in each pool, etc.), will be set by the World Series Tournament Director following USSSA Baseball Guidelines. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of four (4) games (2 pool / double elimination), weather permitting.

Teams securing a USSSA World Series berth must play in their State Championship Tournament to validate their World Series berth.  Contact your home state's 
USSSA Baseball State Director for complete details regarding the State Tournament in your home state.
