AUGUST 30 AND 31 AT STANISLAUS STATE UNIVERSITY
On behalf of tournament sponsors, WILSON/DEMARINI and NorCal Baseball, you are invited to compete in the INAGURAL NORCAL WORLD SERIES UNDERCLASS GAMES. We
will be inviting 50 of the top underclass players in Northern California to compete in the two day event.
Since its inception in 2008, the NORCAL WORLD SERIES has become one of the top events on the West Coast for MLB scouts and West Coast D1 programs to attend. Why?
We attract more of the top players from all over Northern CA (from Redding to Bakersfield) than any other event. The scouts & recruiters get to see you compete not only in a highly competitive tournament setting, but also in a pro-style workout.
By visiting our website at www.norcalworldseries.org you will see the countless number of NWS players who have been given the chance to play College Baseball or be drafted in the MLB Draft. We feel very proud to have been part of the success of past players and look forward to being part of YOUR success as a player.
On August 30-31 for the first time we will be holding an UNDERCLASS ONLY EVENT at Stanislaus State University. We will be capping the event at 50 players in order for us to really make sure everyone gets plenty of work and game time.
Besides playing in a great event, players will have a chance to earn an invitation to the NORCAL WORLD SERIES THAT WILL BE PLAYED ON JUNE 5-8 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE PACIFIC IN 2015
The NorCal Clubhouse 6761 Sierra Court Suite C, Dublin, CA
Tuesday 10 - 14 Yrs Old 6:00 – 7:30 High School 7:30 – 9:00
Thursday 10 - 14 Yrs Old 6:00 – 7:30 High School 7:30 – 9:00
Players and families –
We will start our off-season hitting and pitching development programs starting this upcoming week. We will have a clinic on Tuesday (6-9) and Thursday (6-9) at "the clubhouse" 6761 Sierra Court Suite C in Dublin.
We have assembled some of the top instructors and developers of talent in the country. I've been in the game for 30 years and feel that these guys are the best! Kevin Berry, Jamal Harrison, and Junior Ruiz will help take our guys to another level. The guys will be putting on a clinic to show the players and families what they will be learning in the eight week instructional programs.
We have assembled these guys for one reason – they are the best at what they do! We want the best for our guys and these instructors will take you to the next level. To be the best, you have to train with the best. That means it's important that all of you participate in these classes in order to be able to keep these guys in our program.
The introductory clinic is $30. Players are welcome to attend both Tuesdays and Thursdays. We encourage parents to be on the floor to watch what they are going to teach. It's important to know the quality of instruction that your players are going to get.
Finally, we will have a mechanism to sign up for classes on Tuesday and Thursday. We will have group classes that are extremely reasonable for NorCal players as well as individual lessons with our instructors. NorCal players will become members of "the clubhouse" and have special access to guest speakers, the ability to get extra individual work, as well as the mentoring of the recruiting process with Coach Bruno.
We would prefer to have the 10–14-year-olds from 6 – 7:30 PM and the high school kids from 730 – 9 PM both days. It's important to me that all of you come out to see what is in store for you – the inside facility is the missing link to the development part of the process and our program and we are very excited to take each and every player to even another level.
NorCal Baseball is a tradition that was established in 1992 with one 15 year old team. That team won the 15&U AAU National Championship and started the run of success on and off the field. Players like Pat Burrell, Jimmy Rollins, Xavier Nady, and Dontrelle Willis anchored those early teams set the tone of success for the present teams.
It is up to those present players and teams to extend the legacy steeped in tradition. The work ethic created by those early players was exemplary. The fact that they cared enough to pass it on to the next generation of players was even more impressive. That work ethic and style of play is the reason we have a national reputation of playing the game “the right way”. It is a legacy worth perpetuating.
We are in the process of sending out emails to those players we are inviting to join the fall program from our August 16th tryouts. Emails should be completed by Monday August 25th
