Program 15, the premier baseball player development and training system, and Prospect Wire, the highly-regarded national tournament and event provider and online scouting database, announce expansion in amateur baseball scouting coverage.
PROGRAM 15, the Official Global Grassroots Player Identification and Development Program for New Balance Baseball announced plans to attend select Prospect Wire events this spring to evaluate players for a potential invitation to represent their country at the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series International Week.
PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts and coaches will be onsite to evaluate and write scouting reports on players attending Prospect Wire events on May 19-20 at the Mariners Complex in Peoria, AZ, and June 1-3 in Orlando, FL.
Players identified by PROGRAM 15 staff will be submitted to New Balance Baseball for a potential invitation to represent their country on either the National or World Team Rosters during the New Balance Future Stars Series International Week scheduled for Summer 2018.
Top players from the upcoming New Balance National Tournament class of 2021 and 2022 will be selected by PROGRAM 15 to compete in Prospect Wire’s All American Games at Vanderbilt, and another Division 1 location to be announced, in August 2018.

Prospect Wire will continue to be on hand to capture advanced data and provide social media coverage exposure and instant alerts to colleges across the country via their text system that serves over 200 schools.
