WHY YOU WANT TO GO
Formerly known as the Junior Olympics (“J.O.’s”), the USA Baseball National Championship is a highly competitive week-long event where standout players are selected to play on the USA National Teams. And, the event is also well attended by collegiate recruiters and pro scouts.
FormerBlue Wavers David Nick (Diamondbacks), Austin Hedges (Padres), and James Kaprelian (Yankees) were selected and played for the USA Baseball National teams in 2008, 2010, and 2014 respectively. Current Blue Waver Ben Reiland helped lead the USA Baseball 12U National team to a world title in Taiwan in 2017.
