Here in Nebraska we play Legion baseball for our 17 and 19uu groups. Although we are under the Legion umbrella, we take teams of all affiliations for the Battle of Omaha. The one cavat that we have is birthdate eligibility that we go by for these events.
The 15u is a freshman / reserve type of event although we do have a lot of select teams that participate. This past year we had 12 teams that competed. Teams will play 3 pool play games with pool winners advancing to championship round. Other teams will play a consolation game
The 17u, which is considered more of a JV type of tourney had 36 teams this past year. A majority of the teams that play in this event are 15/16 year olds, Teams will play 5 pool play games with the pool winners advancing to the championship round
The 19u is a varsity style tourney. This past year the midweek had 12 teams while the weekend event had 44. Teams participating in the midweek will play 3 pool games while teams in the weekend event will play 5 pool games. Pool winners in both events advance to the championship round
