Format, rules

All teams are guaranteed a minimum of three games. Bracketing will be determined based on team entry numbers.

The tournament will use Little League rules (www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/tournaments/TournamentRules-Baseball.pdf) that have been modified to control excessive scoring, increase participation and make substituting easier. Players may need to provide proof of school status via a school I.D. card.

Custom Cornhusker State Games gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to all members of the top three teams in each division. All registered team members and coaches will receive a medal.

The Elite Umpire Association will provide umpires for all the games at the 2019 Cornhusker State Games Baseball tournament. All umpires are required to have gone through a special training series in order to umpire this tournament, and many of the umpires have high school and college umpiring experience.
