He is the Northern California Regional director for PROGRAM 15 and is involved in the training centers we are building across the country. As a special assistant to me in all areas of youth baseball, he has shown time and time again to have vision and the best interests of the players in mind. Bringing this event into the fold was an absolute cake decision.”

Tony Crivello, President and GM of NorCal Baseball, said, “We are thrilled to become a partner with PROGRAM 15. We feel we have one of the best events in the country with some of the best players in the country. There is no doubt the PROGRAM 15 model and vision fits what we believe in.
