Ratings Change After 2023 World Championships

Oct. 1, 2023

Softball News Report

Sixty-three of the 654 teams competing in 2023 World Championships were automatically raised to the next higher skill level. The winners in each of the Major, AAA and AA divisions will play at the next higher skill level for the 2024 season.

Other teams raised in the larger divisions have a right to appeal their rating after playing in three  tournaments in 2024.

Here is the breakout of teams moved to the next higher skill level (Senior Softball Rulebook, Page 66):

Teams winning their division of the World Championships in the AA, AAA and Major Divisions will be raised in ratings to the next skill level and will not be eligible for appeal until the team plays at its new rating for one season.

Other teams in those divisions will be raised to the next skill level and will be eligible for appeal after competing in three (3) qualifying tournaments:

* 10 or fewer teams = Champion only moved.
* 11 to 20 teams = Finalist (two total teams).
* 21 to 30 teams = Finalist and 3rd Place (three total teams).
* 31 or more teams = Finalist, 3rd and 4th Place (four total teams).
