Fast Pitch - About

The Illinois team results of the 2012 World Series are included below and we wish to CONGRATULATE ALL THE TEAMS who participated in the World Series events this season. If you did participate, you are one of 151 Illinois teams to play USSSA World Series events.

World Series qualifying tournaments have been added to the Illinois and National web sites almost daily so keep checking the web sites. New areas opened up for competition include; Village Inn at Urbana and Bethalto and O’Fallon in Southern IL and for those teams wishing to participate in Indoor Tournaments in the Terra Haute, IN area you can enter those tournaments thru the Indiana web site.

Jeff Sanders has been recently appointed the Indiana Fast Pitch State Director and you can reach Jeff at or 812-887-0501 or his web site at

More Fall World Series qualifying tournaments are available than ever before. This ensures you can fund raise and plan your World Series event almost 9 months prior to the event. World Series and State Tournament dates and locations should be available in mid-November.

As in the past you are required to play in an Illinois USSSA State Tournament to advance to the World Series. For those teams not qualifying outright for the World Series; play in at least 3 Illinois USSSA tournaments and one of those must be an IL State Tournament to advance to the World Series.

Team Re-Classification will be posted on the web site in the near future. If you are a 10U/12U/14U “A” team in 2012 and will be participating in the 11U/13U/15U programs or have been reclassified in 2013 to Class “A”, you must participate in Class “A” or Open tournaments. You may participate in the odd age groups but if/when you participate in the even age groups you must play at 12A/14A/16A level.

Thanks so much for playing USSSA and hope to see you back on the diamonds this upcoming 2013 season.
