Former Mater Dei High School assistant varsity baseball coach Carlos Cornejo is now recruiting additional players for his 14U team for 8th graders that want to prepare to play at the highest level in high school.

Besides coaching, Cornejo also played at Mater Dei in his high school years, then played four years on scholarship at Curry College in Boston. Cornejo is assisted by Coach Chris Reiland, a long-time club coach, and Coach Joe Carrig, also a former Mater Dei High School and Curry College player.

Blue Wave 14U practices twice weekly at the OC Great Park in Irvine under current COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions and will play a few out-of-state tournaments until local gameplay resumes in California.

The team’s first tournament is set for  OCT 10-11 in Yuma, Arizona, and is open to all players. Full-time Blue Eave 14U team players have priority, though out-of-state travel tournaments are not mandatory to join any Blue Wave team.

If you are a hard-working player and want to play with great coaches, great teammates, and face strong competition, contact Steve Kruse (949) 202-7748 or
