THE ROAD TO THE AREA CODE GAMES
STARTS HERE!

SCHEDULE

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. 

 

Through the ID Series, Area Code Baseball is excited to provide Area Code Games eligible athletes with an opportunity to showcase their talent and get on our radar for future invite-only event considerations -- In 2022, 40 ID Series participants received an Area Code Games tryout invitation. 

 

The Area Code ID Series is open to 2024, 2025, 2026 and 2027 graduates.
