This first annual International signature event will be held in tandem with the Future Stars Series World Combine and feature elite players selected by Future Stars Series International Scouting Staff. Countries expected to be represented include the U.S., Dominican Republic, Columbia, Venezuela, Bahamas, Panama, Curacao, Aruba, and Mexico, with the possibility of players from Europe and Asia if health protocols and schedule permit.
Booth said, “The Caribbean Classic is the next step in the global initiative. This event is very special to all of us at the series. Pairing it with the World Combine, we’re able to see all the advanced testing through Pelotero and other data partners, and advance player thinking as the game evolves with what’s expected of them. It’s going to be an excellent cross-section of players, and taking a USA delegation will be a special experience for all who attend. This type of event is always very exciting, and we can’t wait to get to Cabo.”
Players participating in Future Stars Series Events will compete in a 3-game series and receive custom uniforms, apparel, and specially designed limited-edition footwear from New Balance, bats and gloves from Marucci, G-Form protective wear, and Franklin batting gloves.
All events will be broadcast globally. Additional information on viewing games will be available once broadcast partners are confirmed.
