2023 Future Stars Series Underclass Combine Preview, Class Of 2025

June 24, 2023

In its fourth year of existence, the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series Underclass Combine heads to the Music City for the first time, set to kick off the Combine schedule at Shelby Park on June 26.

Following the postponement of the event for the 2027’s to the July 10-12 timeframe, and the 2025’s will set a very high bar for the rest of the groups to follow; there are plenty of familiar names on the rosters of the eight teams put together, including numerous standouts from last October’s inaugural Fresh 50 in Tucson.

In addition to a bevy of new names who have been identified through a variety of events since then, alums of that event such as Ethan Barnes, Dominic Bonilla, Zack Bretza, Julian Carter, Landon Cochran, Ryder DeJournett, Benjamin Dominguez, Manuel Dorantes, Matthew Gileno, Brayden Jaksa, Michael Nicolini, Peyton Richards, Brayden Smith, Watson Storey, Robert Sutton, Karson Trichel (pictured) and others are expected to attend.

Players will then go through defensive testing, offensive testing, take live BP, and go through the Pelotero station all before a series of group positional development stations with the FSS staff, with the day wrapping up with guest speakers.
