$950 Entry Fee plus your $70 2022/2023 Grand Slam Sanction Fee! $850 Team Gate Fee gets EVERYONE in the park ALL week long!
- $850 TEAM GATE FEE. NO admission at the gate, EVERYONE gets to come and go as they please! While other organizations charge $20 per day per person to get in, we cover EVERYONE with the Team Gate Fee! This equates to $70.83 per player based on 12-players per team. This is to HELP SAVE PARENTS a TON of Money by attending our event. Do the Math: $20 per day for adults x 2-parents = $40 per day x MINIMUM 4-days of admission cost = $160. 5-days = $200 and 6-days = $240. This doesn't even include kids over 12, grandparents, other relatives, friends, etc.... Just ANOTHER way for us to show our appreciation to the teams for supporting GRAND SLAM SPORTS TOURNAMENTS and our 2022 GRAND SLAM WORLD SERIES OF BASEBALL! AGAIN, your team gate fee covers EVERYONE!

When determining what class you are in a particular age division with Grand Slam, we offer FOUR separate classes: A, AA, AAA and MAJOR:
Keep in mind that classifying teams is VERY SUBJECTIVE and a very inexact science. Unfortunately there will always be "sand baggers" & "trophy hunters" in our world but we do the best we possibly can to make sure all teams are classed appropriately within the Grand Slam organization. Will we always get it right? Absolutely not! Again, it is very subjective and a lot of teams are what we call "tweener" teams; teams that can potentially dominate the American class one weekend and not even complete in the National class the next weekend. This is the gray area when it comes to classifying teams. We leave it up to our respective State Directors to place teams in the class they feel is best suited for that particular team. We reserve the right to move a team up or down prior to our World Series event or during the regular season based on their play in the Grand Slam sanctioned events. For teams who do not have the opportunity to play in our qualifying events, we place them in the class that is on an equal basis with other travel baseball organizations.
The “A” class teams are start-up and rec ball type teams.
The "AA" class teams are teams that are average travel ball teams and not quite at the elite level of their age division.
The "AAA" class teams are teams that are above average travel ball teams and compete on a higher level than the American class teams.
The “MAJOR” class are teams that are the cream of the crop in their respective age division.
In our World Series events, we do our best to separate into TWO separate classes, A & AA and AAA & Major. There are occasions where we have to combine all teams and when that is the case, we still award the highest finishing 3 A/AA teams and the highest finishing AAA/Major teams. In other words, SIX teams in a combined bracket receive awards, 1st, 2nd & 3rd in both classes. World Series Session IV is an OPEN event!
All 7-U CP through 14-U teams that are based in GEORGIA, ALABAMA, LOUISIANA, NW FLORIDA PANHANDLE, NORTHERN KENTUCKY (Louisville area), SOUTHERN INDIANA (Charlestown area) SOUTH CENTRAL TENNESSEE (Chattanooga & Cleveland areas) & MISSISSIPPI are required to play in FIVE total qualifying events which includes the 2023 Southeastern Championships and/or your particular State's "State Championship" event in order to participate in a Grand Slam World Series event. 15-U and up teams do not have to play in any qualifying events. Teams from ALL other states can register on a FIRST COME BASIS as there are NO qualification procedures. ** The State of Louisiana will only require 3-total qualifiers in 2023 and go to 5-total qualifiers in 2024.
Keep in mind, we are starting up new States in 2023 so check here to see if we have qualifiers coming to your area!
We urge you to sign up for your World Series event NOW as they sell out well in advance. World Series Session I, II & III were sold out by late February, early March in 2022. If you are required to play in qualifying events, you can sign up for these later.....DO NOT WAIT as you could get shut out of the week you want to play!
