As always please make sure that you and your families are checking the schedule posted on the web site throughout the Event because things may change.  We also want to make sure that everyone is ready to go at least a half-hour before the scheduled game time.  We will do our best to keep everything on schedule and may start games early if the fields are open and the teams are ready.

Please make sure that you are familiar with the Triple Crown rules for this Event. Particularly the bat rules, pitching limitations, time limits and mercy rules for your age division. Also be aware that scorecards will be kept for each game by the umpire crews. It is your responsibility to verify and sign each scorecard after every game!!! Most importantly, please take responsibility for your organization (players and parents) and make sure that they represent your team and community with high standards.

Triple Crown Sports offers this super and unique way to communicate. You, your families, and players have the option of signing up for Pocket Updates for each of our Events. "Pocket Updates" are an easy way to receive instant updates regarding weather and game-by-game scores. These updates are sent by way of text messaging and/or email. This is the quickest and easiest way to get the information that you and your families need while participating in a TCS Event. You will be able to sign up for "Pocket Updates" from the Game Schedule web page after the schedule has been posted. Triple Crown Sports DOES NOT charge for this service, but your carrier's data fees may apply.

All teams will be required to submit their team insurance information online and will also be required to complete the online digital roster. Teams cannot play and will be forced to forfeit their games if the digital roster and insurance is not 100% complete.  The team insurance information can be submitted by logging into your Triple Crown Profile and clicking the "Team Profile" link by your team. Here is the process for completing your digital roster:
1. Login at
2. Click on the "Roster" tab
3. Add all players/parents by clicking "Add Player + Parent" and entering information
4. Click "Send Player Authorization Requests" once all players are added
5. To be eligible to play, all players must receive the digital authorization signature

Please note that some of the age divisions will have a pool-break in the middle of the day on Saturday where teams will be seeded for the elimination rounds. It is your responsibility to keep your team together so that you can make it to your next scheduled game time. Teams playing in the 12u age division may have to drive to a new location to play after the teams are seeded. We recommend keeping your team on-site after your last Saturday game so that the Site Director can tell you where you are playing after we break pool.

In case of inclement weather, you can direct your families to the tournament web page. There will be a flashing WEATHER UPDATE link on the top right hand corner of the page where weather information and schedule changes will be posted. There are also 4 Site Headquarters for this Event: Fields of Dreams, McCune Park, Cene Park and Koch Fields. You are welcome to send a representative to any of those sites for updates on weather as well as game-by-game results and pitching charts. Always assume that your game is on as scheduled unless you see it on our web site or hear it directly from a Triple Crown Staff!!

Good luck and we will look forward to seeing everyone this weekend
