From time to time we will feature different players that have played in the Classic to give you an idea of who’s participating. This week we want to feature a first-time Classic player, Julian Minor. Julian is 12 years old and is from Fort Worth, Texas. He played this past Spring for the 12U Major Fort Worth Lobos Black who went 33-14 and won the AAYBA 12 Open Diamond Bracket World Series going 6-1. He spent most of his time playing 2B, P, and OF. He will be going to the 7th grade this Fall at McLean Middle School in Fort Worth. He not only excels on the field but in the classroom as well and takes all Pre-AP classes. His favorite team is the Texas Rangers and his favorite players are Adrian Beltre and Rougned Odor. When he’s not playing baseball he loves to play PS4 online with his friends and go exploring.

The 4th annual Cepeda Baseball Caribbean Classic is now in the books and it was a huge success! Players from California, Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas travelled to the Dominican to compete against multiple local teams in the 11U, 12/13U, 14U, and 16U age groups. Lots of great baseball was played and lots of new friendships and memories were created. One of the many highlights of the week was when all players received an autographed post card from MLB HOF’r Orlando Cepeda. Special thanks to all of the players, parents, and partners that made this event possible.
