2016 YBN National Championship and ‘Road to Branson’

Features Multiple Major Youth Baseball Organizations

Boston, MA (March 2016) – Youth Baseball Network has announced plans for its second annual YBN National Championship.

The 2016 YBN National Championship will occur August 16-20, 2016 in Branson, Missouri. 

Billed as the Road to Branson™, the prestigious tournament features the 12U National Champions of multiple major youth baseball organizations.  All travel and hotel accommodations for the teams are paid by Youth Baseball Network.

The championship will showcase the 12U National Champions from American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC), Amateur Athletic Union of the United States (AAU), Continental Amateur Baseball Association (CABA), Dizzy Dean Baseball, and National Amateur Baseball Federation (NABF).

In addition, the 12U Missouri State Champions will serve as the tournament’s host team. The state champion will be crowned via a series of tournaments in Missouri conducted by Greater Midwest Baseball (GMB) of St. Louis.

“We’re very excited to be returning to Branson for our second YBN National Championship” states Gil Vieira, founder and CEO of Youth Baseball Network. “Our inaugural championship in 2015 was a huge success – and we look forward to a bigger and better tournament in 2016.”

Vieira believes Branson plays a major role in the company’s plan to make the YBN National Championship the premier youth baseball tournament in America.

The City of Branson, nestled in the lakeside beauty of the Ozark Mountains, is truly a one-of-a-kind family vacation destination. It features dozens of live performance theaters, an international award-winning theme park, dozens of attractions and museums, a Historic Downtown district, and championship golf courses. It is the ultimate family destination – and voted the #1 best value city in America by

“Along with the excellent caliber of play provided by the champions participating in the tournament; the week in Branson also offers much fun for the players and their families,” stated Vieira. “From the Duck Boat Rides…to Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Titanic Museums….to the Acrobats of China the special YBN Opening Ceremony featuring a spectacular fountain and fire display at the Branson Landing – that’s only a small sample as to why Branson is the ideal host city for our prestigious championship.”

The championship begins with the Road to Branson and each organizations’ 12U World Series. To follow the Road to Branson, log on to
