2024 Battle of Omaha is pleased to offer a non-sanctioning tournament for ages 10 - 14. We offer 4 games for all ages, weather permitting. We do our best to ensure everyone can attend the CWS each night as we do our best to be off the field by 5pm. Regardless of weather, we do not play into the evening. Our goal is to maximize the number of games we can get in based on tournament format for a specific age group. Because of that, we must string game times back-to-back with game time limits and modifications during bracket play and championship rounds.
The tournament cost of $1,075.00 for all age groups includes your entry fee, gate fee for players, coaches and fans, and Nebraska State Sales Tax. Regarding tickets to the CWS, please review the ticket FAQ’s document located on the home page.
As mentioned, you do not need to be sanctioned to any affiliation (CABA, USSSA, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, etc.) to play in the Battle of Omaha. For each age group, a limited number of teams will be determined to fill out the respective age groups; any where from 12-16 teams for each group; so, it is important to register early to hold a spot. The tournament will be aligned with each team playing 2 pool games then being split up by either playing in a Single Elimination Championship Bracket or a Single Elimination Consolation Bracket. If a team loses its first bracket play game, they will get one more game. Each pool of 4 will have a mix of Gold teams, Silver teams, and Bronze teams, based on what the mix is by age group. We will do our best with what we have and try to keep states separate as well. Awards will be given to the 1st and 2nd place teams from the championship bracket and consolation bracket. (the tournament format may be altered due to the number of teams entered in a specific age group) We have sold-out all ages the last four years. If for some unforeseen reason, we may have to combine (not in all circumstances) the 11U/12U age divisions to make these age groups available for tournament play.
