American Elite Baseball Championship- (Formerly 13U NTIS)

In partnership with Major League Baseball, we are happy to announce that this year's
13U NTIS will now be known as the American Elite Baseball Championship. While
regional identification events for this year's teams will remain the same, teams from
fifteen USA Baseball regions across the country, as well as one RBI Program team,
will compete against each other in a championship-style, single-elimination tournament.
All teams are guaranteed four, seven-inning games with some games being streamed
on MLB.com.
