Congratulations on an outstanding season and welcome to the 2018 USSSA Baseball Double-A & Open Class World Series.  Your host will do everything possible to create an experience that the players, coaches, and families will remember for a life time!  The World Series will be played at several venues around South Metro Atlanta, June 21 - 24, 2018.  Entry deadline is June 14, 2018.

USSSA Baseball uses a pool play and double elimination bracket play format for this 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 six (6) games, weather permitting.

Teams securing a USSSA World Series berth must play in their home state's 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.
