Event Format: 5-Game Guarantee. We only invite 10 teams per age group based on research done on various national ranking sites. Each age group is broken down into two pools of four. Each team will play three pool play games against elite teams from their region. Then, all teams in both pools are seeded into a single elimination bracket. No team will play a team from their own pool in the first round. This automatically guarantees four games against a different highly ranked team from your region! Winning this bracket is a MAJOR accomplishment. You will have to be deep in pitching and be able to produce runs to win the whole thing.

1.) 5-Game Guarantee
2.) There are no gate fees
3.) One Dozen Baseballs
4.) Pool Play games to Single Elimination or modified Double Elimination
5.) Professional Staff

What makes the Best of the West special is that ALL teams in our tournaments are invited – we do not host open registration tournaments. If you have received an invite it is because our research team has found you to be a top team in your area. Why would we do this? Because we were tired of spending money and time to go to a tournament to have three or four bad pool play games followed by a bracket. In our tournaments, all games should be competitive – even the pool play.
