Tournament Rules

[supsystic-tables id='2']

We strive to provide each team with a fair tournament. All teams who register for a TTB tournament should read through the appropriate rules page(s) AND the rules of the sanctioning body (USSSA) in order to gain a full understanding of all rules and procedures prior to the start of the tournament. If you have any questions, please contact us or locate your park director prior to the start of the game.

Tournaments are typically a 3-game minimum (weather permitting) unless posted on the schedule as another format. Whenever possible, the tournament will consist of two pool games and a single elimination tournament. Pool games will begin Friday night or Saturday morning with the brackets scheduled for Sunday. Schedules will be made public on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning.

On occasion a tournament will exceed the number of fields at the "listed park." In this case, we will do our best to seek alternate fields so everyone that wants to play can. In doing so, the alternate fields may be some distance from the originally listed park.  Travel is part of "playing tournament baseball" and we do not consider travel within the Metroplex a hardship.  Most facilities can handle 40-60 teams, with only a handful of facilities having the capacity to handle 80+ teams; therefore, if ANY tournament exceeds 40-60 teams, you need to be prepared to play in an alternate facility. Unless undo hardship can be demonstrated (travel time is not considered a "undo hardship"), our refund policy WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT.

All teams should be ready to present team and player documentation listed within the Checklist section at any time during the tournament - example during a roster protest.  It is the sole responsibly of the coach/manager to ensure the accuracy of their roster information - names and birthday MUST match the players birth certificate.  No roster changes can be made after the start of the teams first game.

Coach / Manager Checklist

The following items are MANDATORY before the start of their first game. NO EXCEPTION - please check-in with our tournament staff no later than 30 minutes before the start of your first game

  • All registration and gate fees PAID
  • Official USSSA Roster
  • Insurance Certificate
  • Copy of birth certificate
  • Park Rules

Registration payments can be made through either website; however, the USSSA site does not accept payment for GATE Fees.

Teams PAID IN FULL will appear as CONFIRMED on the Who's Coming page. Only CONFIRMED teams will be scheduled.  If you believe your team has paid and you are still listed as UNCONFIRMED, contact us IMMEDIATELY.

Unless otherwise stated (example FULL), all registration fees must be paid in full 5 days (Monday) before the tournament begins.

Please review the refund policy before withdrawing from any tournament.

Park Rules

Please read our General Park Rules before coming to the park. We HIGHLY SUGGEST looking online to see if the individual park has specific rules particular to that facility or city.

NO DOGS (no matter the size) should be brought to the park. In addition, many parks do not allow such thing as, cooler, totes, outside food or beverages, noise makers, etc. Again, please check with the specific facility.

Playing Rules

Unless outlined in our "Playing Rules", we will follow the USSSA National Rules. From time to time we may have to modify rules due to playing weather, playing condition or to accommodate certain local park rules.
