: Welcome

Best of the Best 2013

In an effort to keep things fresh and exciting we have changed the format of this tournament from what was used in the Best of the West, Witches ASA National and Eastern Qualifiers, and Battle for the Border tournaments hosted over the years.  Because this tournament is the week before Nationals for many, this will be run as a double elimination tournament similar to ASA, NSA and PGF formats.  And because we are limited to the amount of available fields, there will be no pool play games.   This will, however, be a 4 game guarantee for all teams with consolation games being scheduled for final tournament placing.  Only those teams falling short of the 4GG will play consolation games.  All games will be 1 hour 20 minutes finish the inning.   The 14U bracket is limited to 16 teams and the 12U bracket is limited to 12 teams.

Seeding will be determined by individual team performance with criteria based on but not limited to: winning your sanctioned state championship (automatic top seed guarantee), sanctioned tournament championships, overall record and strength of schedule during the 2012-2013 season. This is an "open" tournament that will be played according to ASA rules.  Trophies will be awarded to the first and second place teams.

The tournament will be hosted at Lions Lake Park (128 Dutchtown Rd Voorhees, NJ 08043). Ample parking, clean restrooms, full concessions, and quality well maintained playing fields (including 2 fields with lights) will be provided each day.
