Event History:
The Travel Sports Baseball World Series is the only Select Baseball World Series in Texas that has grown every year in team numbers. We cannot guarantee the number of teams in each division, but our history says it will always be bigger than last year! In 2017 we had 221 teams participate. The event has been based in Grapevine, Texas since 2010.
 
Entry Fee -
$795.00 (11u-14u) /  $695.00 (9u-10u)  /  $495.00 (6u-8u)
We will run an open gate and charge a set fee of $50 per player at team check in.
