Premier Baseball is not a league, and at present does not contemplate engaging in league play among its members, although its members are free to engage in league play. The members of Premier will host invitational tournaments whose pools and brackets will be populated by other Premier teams, though not exclusively.
Premier was not formed to compete with other national organizations, nor is its goal to put others out of business or to be divisive in any way. Teams from Premier organizations will play and compete in a number of existing national organizations. Premier is an attempt to meet the needs of its members in what is an ever-changing amateur baseball landscape.
Premier will have national tournaments at the end of the summer and fall play. To conclude the summer season, Premier will have a national tournament at the Incoming Freshman, Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior levels. These tournaments will have the best team from the organization at each level, where appropriate. In some instances, organizations who aspire to become associated with Premier Baseball will be invited to enter these national tournaments to fill out the field.
