USSSA Elite World Series Opens Up at ESPN Wide World of Sports
The USSSA Elite World Series began play July 15 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports with the 10U, 12U and 14U age groups kicking off the first week of play. The 9U, 11U and 13U divisions will start play August 5.
Several top 25 teams in Baseball Youth’s Elite 25 team rankings are in the 10U and 12U divisions. Five teams in the top 10 of 10U are at Disney, and two of the favorites have to be BPA Rawlings Elite out of California and the East Cobb Astros out of Georgia. The other three top 10 teams are Team MVP (Florida), Evoshield Canes (North Carolina) and Cabot Storm (Arkansas).
In the 12U division, Team Phenom out of California is the favorite, but Gallagher Select out of New Jersey and a couple other squads will provide stiff competition.
Teams have three days of pool play games before they are ranked and placed in bracket play for a Wednesday start. Bracket play is double elimination until a winner is crowned on Saturday, July 21.
