March 6, 2024

With the industry still buzzing after the announcement of the inaugural New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series JUCO Super Regionals, FSS President and CEO Jeremy Booth has revealed more details about the upcoming event, specifically dates, locations and nearly a complete list of venues.

Each site will host 12 teams in three pools of four, with the winner at each venue set to advance to the following year’s Showdown, where they’ll join San Jacinto College and a club comprised of the 2024 Main Event players.

This year’s JUCO Super Regionals are set for eight different locations and will take place over four different weekends, as listed below:

Dell DiamondRound Rock, TXOCT. 4-6

Every player on every team will be evaluated by taking tests from companies like Pazik and NTangible, who focus on developing and assessing the mental side of the game as well as Senaptec, who analyzes vision and reaction and Sports Academy sports science testing, cognitive function, game play and advanced analytics. That’s in addition to Trackman data, Synergy video, Motor Preferences, and subjective tool evaluations.

All information will go towards overall FSS role forecasting models, and all teams will be invited by the Future Stars Series.

With the inaugural Showdown having been a success, as well as the upcoming JUCO All-Star Weekend and now this, the Future Stars Series is stepping up to further development and exposure for junior college players.
