PG On Deck: July 11

Blake Dowson     
15U WWBA National Championship

LakePoint Sports Complex and East Cobb Complex in Cartersville, Ga. will again be the scene of the 17th-annual 15U WWBA National Championship, taking place from July 12-19 across 45 fields in the area.

312 teams will be split across 39 pools, all getting six pool play games in the first five days in an effort to advance to the single elimination championship bracket play.

The Louisiana Knights Black will be back in Georgia to defend their 2018 title, along with three other Louisiana Knights clubs — Gray, White, and Green. The East Cobb Astros, who have won the 15U WWBA National Championship four times since 2007, will also be competing for another title.

As is the case at each and every WWBA National Championship at any age level, the top talent in the respective age level will be in attendance. 82 past 15U WWBA participants are now wearing MLB jerseys, including some of the top players in the league like Pittsburgh’s Josh Bell, Chicago’s Jason Heyward, Tampa’s Austin Meadows, and the Angel’s Mike Trout.

This year’s crop of players includes 64 of the top 100 prospects in the 2022 class, and six of the top 10. Termarr Johnson, the No. 3 prospect in the class, will be playing for Team Elite 15U Scout Team. He’s followed by No. 4 Brandon Barriera, No. 6 Elijah Green, No. 8 Sal Stewart, No. 9 Andruw Jones, and No. 10 Luke Davis.

16U BCS National Championship

Fort Myers, Fla. and JetBlue Park will play host to 64 teams for the 14th-annual 16U BCS National Championship from July 13-20.

Parody has been the trend in the 16U BCS, as 12 different teams have won the past 12 titles since 2006. MWE Bombers, winners of last year’s 16U BCS, will not be sending a team this year, meaning there will yet again be a new champion crowned.

The 16U BCS National Championship, like the 15U WWBA, has an alumni list that is starting to compile Major League players. Francisco Lindor, Manny Machado, Daniel Vogelbach, and Trea Turner are among the players to have competed in the event.

No. 8 2021 prospect Izaac Pacheco, shortstop commited to play his college ball at Texas A&M, headlines the group in attendance. Fellow A&M commit Rawley Hector, the No. 11 overall prospect in the class as a righthanded pitcher, will also compete. A pair of Florida State commits in Jackson Baumesiter and Brodie Chestnutt are another pair of top-50 prospects that will play in the event.

14U, 16U West National Championships

2019 is the inaugural year for both the 14U and 16U West National Championships, held from July 12-18 in Surprise, Ariz.

The 14U event will involve 14 teams and the 16U tournament will include 16 teams, with both tournaments having two pools with an equal amount of teams in each pool.

Across both the 14U and 16U tournaments, the states of Arizona, Colorado, California, Texas, Nevada, Utah, Oklahoma, and even New York in the 14U, will be represented.

There will be a number of players in attendance at the 16U event who have already committed to play big-time college baseball at schools such as Oregon State, Stanford, Purdue, and California.

14U, 16U, 17U PG Super25 National Championships

The 14U, 16U, and 17U PG Super25 National Championships will all take place in the next week, with the 14U tournament calling Sanford, Fla. home, while the 16U and 17U events will be held in Fort Myers, Fla.

The 14U PG Super25, which runs from July 12-16, will see 36 teams compete for a chance to move through their pool and advance to the championship bracket. 13 states, from California to Missouri to New York, will be in attendance, along with teams from Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. More than 20 Top-1000 players in the 2023 class will be in attendance, as well.

Running from July 15-19, the 16U PG Super25 will have teams traveling from 10 different states, as well as the Bahamas, to compete for a title at JetBlue Park, Spring Training home of the Boston Red Sox.

The 17U Super25 will also be held from July 15-19 in Fort Myers, at the 5 Plex-Lee County Player Development Complex. 12 teams from six different states will be in attendance, as well as three teams from Puerto Rico.
