YOUR AREA CODE BASEBALL JOURNEY STARTS HERE!
For 37 years, Area Code Baseball has provided the nation’s best high school baseball players with an opportunity to compete on amateur baseball’s biggest stage – The Area Code Games. With 248 alums on current MLB rosters, the Area Code Games are where many of baseball’s biggest stars earned the opportunity to compete before hearing their name called on Draft Day.
For a 3rd consecutive year, Area Code Baseball is excited to provide a younger group of athletes with an opportunity to get on our radar and begin their journey to the Games through our Development Series.
The Area Code Development Series is an opportunity for 2028, 2029 & 2030 high school graduates to showcase their ability, receive data analysis + feedback and get a jumpstart on understanding what to expect at the future levels of baseball.
Eligible players for the Area Code Baseball Development Series are athletes currently in 6th, 7th or 8th grade. The cost to attend is $199 and an additional $40 to participate at a secondary position.
