SESSION II (June 21-28, 2020)

Panama City Beach Sports Complex, Chip Seal Parkway, PCB, Florida & Frank Brown Park, 16200 PCB Parkway, PCB, Florida


With a number of teams dropping out due to COVID-19 concerns, our numbers have fallen from where they were back in March.  We were well on our way to having the biggest number of teams EVER attend our Grand Slam World Series events.  With that said, we are 100% COMMITTED to giving you the best World Series experience we possibly can regardless of the number of teams we have attend!  Just yesterday (May 19), we launched the most aggressive digital ad campaign we ever have in hopes of gaining more teams.  We hope more teams jump in prior to the entry deadline date of Friday, June 12, 2020.  Below you will find somewhat of a checklist of things to do in order to be prepared for this years event.  Please read through ALL of these!  We look forward to welcoming all of you to the World's Most Beautiful Beaches and The 2020 Grand Slam World Series of Baseball Session II!


AS OF TODAY, WORLD SERIES SESSION II WILL BE PLAYED AT BOTH THE NEW PCB SPORTS COMPLEX and FRANK BROWN PARK!  


1.  IF you have not already paid your entry and/or gate fees, you will need to do this ASAP!  We have the website set up where you can pay BOTH of these fees from your team clubhouse.  The entry fee is $750 and the team gate fee is $650.  The team gate fee gets EVERYONE from your team into the park as we will not be selling admission at the gate.  Please don't call or text asking if we have you paid as we will not take any team out without checking with you first.

2.  Your Roster freezes on Friday, June 12, 2020.  NO TEAM CAN PARTICIPATE in the World Series without an online roster.  Please get this taken care of ASAP!

5.  Schedules for the event will be posted on the website no later than 9:00 PM (CT) on Monday, June 15, 2020.  Note that with no pre-game home plate meetings, we will be determining home teams in pool play prior to the start of the event.  This will be denoted on the schedules.  In bracket play, the home team is always the highest seeded team OR the last undefeated team in the winners bracket.  All teams will play a pool play DH on either Monday, June 22 or Tuesday, June 23.  The day you don't play is your designated day off.  Double elimination bracket play starts on Wednesday, June 24.  No team is eliminated prior to Thursday, June 25.  Championships are on Saturday, June 27 and Sunday, June 28 is the designated rain date.

6.  Unfortunately there will be no opening ceremonies parades this year at Pier Park.  There is no way to practice social distancing with this many people at one place at the same time.

7.  We are still going to have Pin Trading!  We are currently working on the logistics on how to make this happen.  Once we come up with a concrete plan we will post it here on the website.

8.  Skills competitions will be held on Monday and Tuesday, June 21 & 22 at a TBA field at either the PCB Sports Complex or Frank Brown Park.  You will sign up for the skills competitions at the coaches meetings.

9.  YES, we will have coaches meetings at Rockit Lanes, Richard Jackson Boulevard, PC Beach, Florida.  Please, a max of 2-coaches and/or team mom at this meeting so that we can adhere to social distancing guidelines.  This will take place at 9:00 AM (CT) on Sunday, June 21st for 8U through 11U and 10:30 AM for 12U through 14U teams .  EVERY TEAM must have a representative in attendance.  IF by chance you have not turned in necessary forms, you can do so at this time.  You will also pick up any pre orders for WS merchandise at this time.

10. The Pre-Order form for Official World Series Merchandise will be under the documents tab on the website no later than Wednesday, May 27.  We encourage you to share this information with your parents as this year we will have a very limited amount of tournament T-shirts on site at the park.  Deadline for turning in pre-order forms for merchandise is Friday, June 12, 2020.

11. Please familiarize yourself with both the Grand Slam Rules and the PCB Sports Complex Rules.  The Grand Slam rules are here https://www.grandslamtournaments.com/baseball/2019-2020-grand-slam-rules and the PCB Sports Complex Rules are here https://www.grandslamtournaments.com/baseball/Events/Details/1020/the-2020-grand-slam-world-series-of-baseball-session-i

12. World Series II will be a classed event this year where possible.  We will begin to classify teams into their respective classes over the next few weeks.  Teams that play in Grand Slam areas are classed based on where your respective State Director feels you need to be.  Teams who do not have the opportunity to play in Grand Slam qualifiers are classed on an equal level with other travel baseball organizations.  Ex:  You are classed as a AA team in USSSA, then you are an American team with us; AAA teams are National, Major teams are Elite, etc...  FINAL classifications will be made the week of June 8, 2020.  IF we do have to have an open event in a particular age division, we will still recognize and honor the top-3 teams in both the Rookie/American and National/Elite classes after bracket play.  

13. All weather updates and schedule updates will be posted on the website.

14. NO campers or overnight parking is allowed at either complex.

15. NO pets unless service animals allowed into the park.

16. NO motorized, electric or gas powered vehicles of any type allowed inside the park.

17. Grand Slam will provide two new Mizuno NFHS baseballs per game.


The Following are the COVID-19 guidelines that Grand Slam will have in place for World Series Session I:

* Note that Grand Slam will NOT compromise the integrity of the game.  We will play real baseball!

A)  No pre-game home plate meeting.  All Umpires will undergo a temp check every day prior to taking the field for a game.

B)  During Phase I in Florida, the Home plate umpire will be positioned near pitchers mound.  In Phase II, the home plate umpire will return to normal positioning behind the catcher.  The State of Florida is currently in Phase I, however, it is entirely possible that we could be in Phase II by the start of this event.

C)  During Phase I in Florida, NO spectators be will allowed in bleachers.  No spectators will be allowed in the area from the first base dugout to the 3rd base dugout directly behind home plate.  This area will be for extended dugout personnel only.

D)  Spectators are encouraged to bring your own chairs.  Each team is also free to bring in a team cooler.  Pop up tents are also allowed.

E)  No post game hand shakes or post game team meetings on the field after a game.

F)  No pre determined dugout rules.  We will leave this up to each team to determine how best to handle this as it pertains to them and what they feel is safe. In other words, we will Not dictate how many players or coaches are in dugout and how the players & coaches should be spaced.  We will let teams police themselves as they feel is best.

G)  Hand sanitizer will be available in dugouts.

H)  All scoreboards, dugouts and restrooms will be sanitized on a regular basis.

I)  During Phase I in Florida, only groups of 10 will be allowed and social distancing will be practiced.  In Phase II, groups of 50 will be allowed.

J)  NO team will be allowed to leave their dugout without first having all trash and debris removed.

K)  NO sunflower seeds, peanuts of any kind or any other kind of shelled snack in which spitting of the shell or discarding of the shell is involved.

L)  If a coach wants to protest an umpires call and/or rule, he or she must ask for time and motion umpire to dugout.  Umpire and coach will maintain 6-foot difference to adhere to social distancing.

** Grand Slam reserves the right to add and/or change any of these outlines prior to the start of the event depending on what phase of reopening the State of Florida is in at the time of the event.
