FARMINGTON — The addition of pool play and an expanded field of 17 teams are among the many format changes coming to this year’s Connie Mack World Series, according to Carol May, chairwoman of the CMWS Committee.
The American Amateur Baseball Congress proposed the changes at the annual AABC meeting in October, and the CMWS Committee agreed to them. The changes will be implemented starting with this year’s tournament.
The field of teams will expand from 12 to 17 and a weekend of pool play precede the double-elimination tournament, May said.
May said adding more teams and extending the event will bring more of the best amateur competition in the country to Farmington.
“When you only have 12 teams, you limit … how many good teams you can bring to the tournament,” May said in a phone interview with The Daily Times on Friday. “It’s a highly prestigious tournament, so I think the thought behind it is a lot of really good teams should be playing in it, and we should get to watch them.”
The qualifying teams are scheduled to arrive on Thursday, July 27. On Friday, July 28, there will be a manager’s meeting, the parade, the home run derby and the fungo skills challenge, followed by opening ceremonies in the evening.
