THE ROAD TO THE AREA CODE GAMES
STARTS HERE!

The AREA CODE ID SERIES provides you the opportunity to showcase your ability and develop your craft with evaluation and feedback from the professional baseball scouts that manage and make selections for each region’s Area Code Games team. In addition, select participants from the ID Series could earn an invite to compete at an Area Code Tryout in the summer of 2022.
