Blue Wave Baseball is now recruiting exceptional high school players for our two Fall Teams that will play games on weekends, local tournaments, and showcase events September through December 2021.

Blue Wave Underclass is for incoming freshmen (2025 grads) and sophomores (2024) that will play games every Monday at OC Great Park as well as weekend games and selected tournaments or showcase events that include:

Blue Wave Underclass is coached by Chris Reiland, a baseball coach for Aliso Niguel High School. The team will play 15U freshmen-level games as well as 16U high JV level games and tournaments to prepare players for the CIF high school season. Coach Reiland is assisted by Jack Harney, freshman Beckman HS baseball coach.


Blue Wave Varsity-Garcia is for varsity-level players regardless of grad year and plays in 17U or 18U games and tournaments throughout the fall.

The team is coached by Aron Garcia, one of the top youth coaches in Southern California. He is assisted by Coach Wyatt Haccou, former collegiate pitcher at Biola University.

Fall team players will pay a single $99 Fall-Winter Season Fee to be on the team, then pay for games, tournaments, and showcase events as you play them. Typically, tournaments are $150 per player for events with three-game guarantee, $175 per player for four-game guarantee.

Individual scrimmage/league games are $35 for 7-inning game, $45 for 9-inning game. Players only pay when playing a game or tournament.

Though Blue Wave Fall-Winter high school-level teams do not practice and only play games, tournaments, and showcase events, one or two organizational practice sessions or scrimmages may be scheduled as needed.

However, Blue Wave does provide optional fielding practice and hitting sessions for incoming freshmen (2025 grads) in the fall on Mondays and Thursdays at Great Park.

Players must REGISTER online to schedule a tryout or attend an open tryout, practice or game with Blue Wave. There is no cost to register. Or contact Steve Kruse (949) 202-7748 or to arrange a tryout.
