Dear Parents, Players and Baseball Fans,
Our Nation’s pastime plays a very important role in my life. It was a passion for me as a player, as an adult and remains a passion for me to create a fair platform for those who compete and love the game as much as I do. I’ve always had a vision and desire to give back in a way that would keep that passion alive for generations to come.
In 2013, we created the Boras Baseball Classic with the objective to give young baseball athletes an opportunity to play against the best and compete on one of the biggest stages, at no cost to the participants.
Our goal has been to give young players a platform to showcase their talents to college and professional recruiters while giving the athlete an opportunity that could potential impact their educational future and athletic dreams.
Thanks to your support and participation, five years later, we have established ourselves as one of the premier baseball tournaments in the United States and I am pleased to announce that this year we have expanded our tournament in to Arizona.
Today, I welcome you to the 5th Annual Boras Baseball Classic of California. Over the past year we have once again gathered a list of teams that we feel best represent the most talented teams in the state of California. I also believe the team that takes the title of the Boras Baseball Classic of California will have competed against an incredible lineup of extremely talented teams and will have earned the right to be thought of as the premier team in all of California.
The Boras Classic of California would like to extend our gratitude to host schools JSerra Catholic High School, Mater Dei High School and Oak Ridge High School. I appreciate all of those who have helped us make it this far, including the many partners and volunteers that have dedicated their time and resources.
Without your help, the Boras Classic would not have been possible. We acknowledge and appreciate the hard work and dedication that went on behind the scenes and is an essential part of making this tournament happen.
Baseball is a beautiful expression of sport and passion. For all of us who know, love and appreciate the game, we understand the similarities of the game to life. The challenges, successes, failures, the camaraderie, competition, and friendships are all wrapped up in to seven innings of magical plays and untimely mishaps.
At the core of this foundation are the athletes that participate and play this sport with the passion in which it was meant to be played. No matter whether you win or lose, have a great game or unfavorable one; we salute you for your dedication and thank you for being a part of this great event.
Serving the Athletes of Baseball.
