The CABA regional qualifying tournaments will be held in the Tri-Cities, Washington area. The top three teams in each age division will receive a qualifying spot to compete in the national CABA World Series events.
Any team from any league or affiliation is invited and encouraged to compete. The tournament registration fee covers any and all membership dues for CABA. The goal of the tournament is to create a challenging competitive tournament.
There is only a gate fee at the Babe Ruth Sports Complex in Richland. $5 per adult. $3 per child. All proceeds donated act as a fundraiser for field maintenance. All money goes directly to the Babe Ruth Sports Complex Association, (a 501.c3 non-profit organization).
Game dates and specifications vary depending on your team’s age grouping.
This is one of the the biggest stages possible to show the country your coaching abilities and the talent of your players.

CABA World Series Events & Dates
Hotels: Participating out of town teams are required to stay at our event hotels. That information will be provided upon receipt of team entry fee noted above. If your team choose to stay elsewhere other than the Sponsored hotel, please note per the CABA Rulebook, there will be an additional $200 added to the team registration fee. This is considered a “Stay and Play” tournament. You can review more details here about the Red Lion hotels in Kennewick, Pasco and Richland. The minimum number of rooms that need to be reserved is 10 per team.
What if I am a local team within an hour from Tri-Cities? Please disregard the hotel requirement. Logically this wouldn’t make sense to stay in a hotel.
This helps to offset the costs of the rental of fields, two umpires who official each game, three new quality baseballs provided per game and having each field prepped before each game by professional grounds crew.
Arrangements have been made to guarantee rates at the Red Lion Pasco, Kennewick and Richland hotels. Registration must be made at minimum of 30 days in advance.
We have a limited number of rooms already locked in to guarantee your team receives enough accommodations for your players, coaches and families. Rates range from $99.95-106.95 depending upon the event date. (Normal rates run anywhere from $139-149).
FYI: Due to the already enthusiastic response across the Northwest, these six (11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U, & 16U), 16 team, NW Regional events are expected to be filled and we encourage your team to confirm participation at your earliest convenience.
