PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. -- The most anticipated tournament of the early season will take place in Panama City Beach this weekend as many of the top travel ball teams in the country in the 11u-14u age divisions will compete for bragging rights and a momentum heading into the summer season at the PG Beast of the East Super 8 Invitational.

The 11u division will feature eight of the top-30 nationally ranked teams in the field, with Banditos Baseball-LLT6 leading the way at No. 3 nationally. No. 6 Team Sosa 305 and No. 10 Wildcatters-Rusk round out the top-10 teams in attendance.

The top talent in the 12u division is incredible, with seven top-10 teams coming to PCB, as well as No. 11 Florida Jays Scout Team. The top-4 teams in the nation will all be there: ZT National Prospects, TG DBacks National, SBA Marucci National, and Backyard Ballers Black, in that order.

Five top-10 teams are ready to compete in the 13u division, as No. 4 Kangaroo Court Roos American, No. 5 Texas Bombers Elite Andrews, No. 6 LBC National, No. 7 FL Dodgers Scout Team, and No. 8 USA Prime National will all be challenging each other.

USA Prime 14u National will pace the the 14u group as the No. 2 nationally-ranked team in that division.

On the individual level, there are 41 Perfect Game Select Festival alums rostered for the event throughout the 12-14u divisions, with many more athletes who are poised to possibly make their first Select Fest roster this year also competing.
