Jeremy Booth, PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series said, “This event is another piece in the vision to enhance player development and evaluation for players across the globe. We’re excited to work with these countries to advance their players and assist in a high return for both players and their future clubs. To bring this volume of players together into one place for all the MLB clubs and colleges to see is going to be a lot of fun along with selecting the world team from this event in conjunction with the advisory board clubs”.
Participation in the World Combine is by invitation only. Elite players will be selected by PROGRAM 15 staff through workouts and player development camps in designated locations throughout the Caribbean and Canada.
