While many of the eyes in the baseball world are fixed on the Roger Dean Sports Complex for the WWBA World Championship in Jupiter, Florida in late October, just a short drive down I-95 and Florida’s eastern coast will get you to the spring training home of the Astros and Nationals in West Palm Beach. There, you will get the chance to see the game’s youngest stars compete in front of their parents and college coaches alike at the WWBA Freshman World Championship. 

Since 2013, the WWBA Freshman World Championship has provided a “first look” of sorts into what the freshman class has in terms of talent, depth, and projectability. The 2019 edition marked seven years of baseball at this event, and much has changed since Chain Stealth was crowned the first champion.
