Games aired on ESPN

In 2011, Shelby, North Carolina was named the permanent home of the American Legion World Series after decades of rotating venues for the event.

The format of the tournament for the eight teams involves separating into two pools and playing round robin within that pool from Thursday to Sunday. The top seed in each pool plays the runner-up in the other pool in the semifinals on Monday, with the two teams advancing to a one-game championship on Tuesday.

With games set at Keeter Stadium on the campus of Shelby High School, the local community has rallied around the event, turning it into a lengthy celebration including the Seventh Inning Stretch festival in Uptown Shelby the Saturday prior to the World Series, a Commander’s Reception the Tuesday before the event and a Parade of Champions the night prior to the first game.

Attendance at the American Legion Baseball World Series has swelled over the length of the tenure in Shelby, setting event records every year.

2011 – 86,162
2012 – 101,925
2013 – 104,726
2014 – 110,036
2015 – 117,072
2016 – 120,000
In addition to attendance in Shelby, all games are streamed online on ESPN3, with games Sunday, Monday and Tuesday broadcast nationally on ESPNU.
