What does it take to be a NorCal Baseball Player?
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 and set the tone of success for the present teams. With early success, NorCal expanded into a four-team structure and began selecting players to field junior, sophomore, freshman and middle school aged teams. This gave players a four-year opportunity to work with excellent coaches and face accomplished opponents, in preparation to play at the next level.
What is the mission of NorCal Baseball?
