Wood Bat Championships and 9U, 10U Grand Nationals Preview

Wood Bat Championships and 9U, 10U Grand Nationals Preview

It’s time for the first week of our summer baseball events! The inaugural Wood Bat Championships and the 9U and 10U AAU Baseball Grand Nationals are HERE!

The two tournaments will be kicked-off by the Opening Ceremonies and Parade of Champions June 15th at 8 PM. Teams should assemble by 7:00. Bring your state’s flag or team banner to show your team off! You can also choose to bring trading pins to be traded before the Opening Ceremonies (or during the week of the tournament).

Then, at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex June 16-21, 53 teams will compete for the title in their respective tournament and division!

The NEW Wood Bat Championships will feature two divisions: A 14U and High School Divisions. Each team is guaranteed a 5-game minimum during the tournament. Limited to only 10 teams per division, this tournament is bound to be a battle of the best!

The Grand Nationals are kicked-off by the 9U and 10U divisions this week. Teams will be guaranteed 7 games through the tournament. This year, we have two teams, the VA Young Guns and the Clermont Coyotes, whose coaches went to high school together! And the AAU will have twins Ryan and Kyle Bono back to coach the 9U Central Florida Suns, returning back nearly twenty years later after being a part of on the original 8 Florida teams when they were 12. Check out the story of their journey HERE!

Make sure you’re using our hashtag for the week #AAUBaseballNatls or when posting your own updates, and be sure to get AAU updates on Twitter @AAU_Baseball, Facebook AAU Baseball, or Instagram at @aausports.

No matter which tournament you may be competing in, the AAU will keep their fingers crossed for no rain delays! Good luck to all participants, and PLAY BALL!
