How are teams classified?When registering your team with Nations Baseball your team will be classified as a SELECT (AA) team by system default. The Nations Baseball software classifies teams by individual player data within the system. Most teams in our area (North Texas) have never registered with Nations Baseball and the system will not recognize your players right away. As teams are classified/reclassified the players will be assigned player grades.
What division should I play in?When joining events you will be required to start in the division that matches your team’s current classification in other recognized organizations you have been active in. We will watch your team’s performance over a few tournaments and make adjustments if needed.
I feel that my team has been mis-classified in the organization that we are currently active in, how do we get reclassified in Nations Baseball?When registering in an event with Nations Baseball please register in the equivalent class you’re currently in with other recognized organizations. We will watch your performance over a few Nations Baseball events and make any necessary adjustments if necessary.
What are “recognized organizations”?North Texas baseball teams regularly play in USSSA and Triple Crown tournaments. We will reference your teams play in these organizations when starting teams out with Nations Baseball to give us a starting point. Game play in small independent tournament outfits will not be referenced as they have no clear logic in their class-play system making there classifications fallible and not useful in establishing true team classification starting points for a Nations Baseball team.
Are Nations Baseball rosters frozen, if so then when?All North Texas teams rosters are frozen June 1st of each year.
Select and Elite teams can add 3 players after being frozen.
Premier teams can add 6 players after being frozen.
Travel Sports Baseball promotes the game of baseball through partnerships with true baseball organizations including Nations Baseball, Perfect Game, National Youth Baseball Championships and Travelball Select.
