Jeremy Booth, PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, says, “The commitment from the CFSA to the community and the players is a strong one and it has been exhibited here in a very big way. As a non-profit group, the Association is in it purely for the players and the youth. We are excited to match their commitment and make the complex the national training home for P15 and home location for the New Balance Future Stars Series National Events.”
The Future Stars Series is the global initiative between New Balance and Program 15 to elevate the game of baseball by providing amateur baseball players across all economic levels an opportunity to reach their full potential through the training, development, and guidance of former MLB players, scouts, and coaches.
