Future Stars Series Closes Out 2021 In Style With Great California Combine Showings

The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series powered by Program 15 Sports finished out the calendar year in grand style this week, wrapping up an always-fully loaded schedule with back-to-back SoCal and NorCal combines that attracted a bevy of the best talent in a state known for producing a ton of it.

“It’s always exciting to get out to the West Coast and the state I grew up in, California,” said NBFSS/P15 CEO and President, Jeremy Booth. “It was good to see some of the best talent out there for two days and they didn’t disappoint. It will be fun to see them again as they advance through the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series system.”

The following players were the leaders in measurables taken during the event, but were certainly not the only standouts. Catcher Jack Lazark, who made waves at both the Underclass Combine and Underclass Elite events, was among the notables with previous FSS experience in attendance over the past two days.

Many arms and two-way players also stood out during the event, including some mentioned below on the @ftrstarsseries Twitter account by Chase Denton, who was among many staffers in attendance for the trip and took the video you see on social media.

As the focus now shifts to the upcoming regional combine in Sarasota, Florida on January 2, those who made a big impression in California should be expecting to hear some news relatively soon when it comes to getting to advance to some of the Future Stars Series’ upcoming jewel events.
