Winning a berth does not guarantee a spot in the GSTC.
Spots are only secured once a team submits their official tournament registration before the registration deadline.
Teams can win an automatic berth by placing 1st or 2nd in a GSTC Qualifier.
Note: If a team is "playing up" for a qualifier, either at an older age level or higher division, and earns a berth, they are only eligible to participate in the GSTC at the age and level to which they qualified. This does not apply to berths that are passed down.
Once all automatic berths are registered, the remaining spots will be invited based on pre-registration and participation in GSTC Qualifiers.
The TOP team from each age/level/district based on Win-Loss % (i.e. 11AAA District II) in the Gopher State Baseball League will automatically earn a berth to the Gopher State Tournament of Champions (GSTC) on July 7-9, July 14-16 or July 21-23 (depending on the team’s age and level of play). This berth is only applicable if space is available in your specific age/level GSTC as of June 16th. There must be a minimum of 6 GSBL games played by a GSBL team by this date in order to be eligible for a League Berth. The berth does not fall past the team in 1st Place.
