    My son plays in the 12 year old division this year. There are some great teams at this age group from Tn. Some of the best teams that I know of at this age group are:
    Shoetiques - Knoxville Impact - Juice - Jackson Coyotes - Knoxville Stars - Memphis Travlers - Franklin Heat - and a new team that just formed called the Tn Dores. I may have missed someone and if so I apologize but these are the most competitive teams that I have seen at this age group over the past couple of years.

    Game Day Baseball in Memphis has some excellent tournaments to test your metal. There are a couple of tournaments that draws talent from all over the country. One is Border Wars and the other is Battle of the South which pulls teams from as far away as California. USSSA does a great job at posting real time results for thier AAA and Majors tournaments. There are always Tn teams in the mix in each of those World Series events.

    I am not as familiar with some of the other age groups but know that Tn has some of the best talent in the southeast.

    I've seen several of these teams play in the past couple of years even though my son plays in 13 yrs. old.
    The Memphis Tigers also has a great team in that age division but the team to watch very closely is the Jackson Coyotes for they have had a couple players that has been playing older to drop back and play that will help them greatly.

    There is a team from Mississippi called Terminators that has alot of Memphis kids on the team. It's the best 12 yr. old team i've seen in this age division. I know i ask about who was the best in TN. Thought it was worth mentioning.

    Thanks for the reply

    The Tennessee Dores are going to make huge waves this season. They have GREAT coaches and some great players. They tryed out almost 90 players last fall. Look out for this team.

    In TN for 11s, Chiefs Baseball (they technically may be out of Dalton/N. GA) won Cooperstown last year for 10s.
    Other top 11s....Memphis Tigers, Knoxville Stars, Shoetiques 11s, TN Ravens, Murfreesboro Warriors in no particular order.
    I agree with the 12U Legends, we played against them last Fall (playing up) and although we stayed with them 3-4 innings they are potent.

    This weekend should prove some of the best teams in all ages (April 4th-6th) in Atlanta in the super NIT road to Disney tournament. Very good teams will be there wanting to prove themselves you have to go very deep in pitching to win this one. This tournament and the one at Rockwood is the toughest tournaments in the South to win,

    Not to take anything away from the Shoetiques (they've been a top program in the state for many years), or the TN Dores, but the Nashville Fury might should be added to this list. This is a new team this year also and they beat the TN Dores and lost by one run in the final inning to the Shoetiques this past weekend.
