Our top competitive level is our D1 or Major/AAA division, which you will see listed simply as 9u, 10u, 11u,12u,13u, and so on. This division includes "Select" teams and is open to any team that wants to compete at that level. Many of these teams are made up of the best players in a city or county. This is our most competitive division and, frankly, the one we hope most teams will choose to enter. Players get better when they are challenged by the top competition. When you see D2 that refers to AA teams. D2 is designed for teams that are not yet ready to compete with the top teams. Examples of teams teams that enter this division include: teams that have players from one school or neighborhood, small town teams, or developmental teams that lack depth in pitching and hitting. Division 2 is similar to the second-tier divisions you see in national sanctioning organizations. However, even if you are sanctioned as a lower team by a national sanctioning body, that does not guarantee you will play Division 2 with Triple Crown. You need to call the tournament director for your Triple Crown event(s) so that person can help you find the best fit with us. Division 2 is not designed to be a paved road to a Championship for weak teams - very good Baseball is played in Division 2. At the same time, we always err toward having teams "play up" in competition to make sure players are being challenged and having chances to improve their skills.
