After being a huge hit in 2017 and 2018, with over a dozen College Coaches in attendance to scout the incredible talent on display, the Pennsylvania Invitational is back for more in 2019 with pro scout evaluations and expanded opportunities for exposure as a Partner Event of the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series powered by PROGRAM 15.
The 3rd Annual Pennsylvania Invitational will be held July 5-7, 2019 in Pittsburgh, PA. Geared toward collegiate exposure, each player on a registered team for the invite-only event will go through a full evaluation and receive their measurable data. Selected players will receive a scouting report written by PROGRAM 15 Pro Scouts and both teams and players will have the opportunity to advance within the Future Stars Series events.
Jeremy Booth, PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, says, “We are excited to work together with Atlantic Coast Baseball on this event. ACB and Matt DeSantis have a great relationship with PROGRAM 15 Mid Atlantic Regional Director Mark Helsel and US Elite, and we cannot wait to get to the region and help players grow.”
Players identified by PROGRAM 15’s MLB experienced scouting staff will be submitted to New Balance Baseball for advanced opportunities to attend the organizations’ highly regarded invite-only Skills, Training and Evaluation Combines, selection to New Balance sponsored regional and national events as well as a coveted spot on the National or World Team Rosters for the 2019 New Balance Baseball International Week.
Led by PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts, and coaches, Future Stars Series Regional Training and Evaluation Combines have garnered a reputation as one of the most comprehensive amateur baseball player identification and development experiences available.
Atlantic Coast Baseball owner Matt DeSantis says, “We are thrilled to come together with Future Stars Series powered by PROGRAM 15. Bringing this type of event to Pittsburgh will be a huge benefit to players in our region. Pennsylvania has needed an opportunity for our young baseball players as our region has flown under the radar despite some talented players. We can’t wait to provide players the exposure that PROGRAM 15 brings. This is the way to help our high school baseball talent take one step closer towards achieving their dream.“
