4th Annual Cepeda Baseball Caribbean Classic

The Cepeda Baseball Caribbean Classic is a premier tournament showcasing young talent from different parts of the USA, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and other Latin countries. This year will be the 4th Annual Cepeda Baseball Caribbean Classic tournament and we are extremely happy to have the chance to bring elite players to compete with the best the island has to offer. Cepeda Baseball Club sees over 500+ baseball players in different locations across the states during tryouts and forms its best rosters from these workouts.
Ages competing will be 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U-16U rosters. Athletes will be highly evaluated before selected on each team. We will strive to take the best possible talent and compete everytime we step between the lines. Our coaching staff will consist of former MLB players, current college coaches, and many more nationally acclaimed baseball coaches.
A memorable opportunity:
Our Cepeda Baseball Caribbean Classic will definitely be a memorable trip for your son, and we hope the family travels down and enjoys this great baseball adventure. We plan on making sure that all players are competing at a high level, but also are able to enjoy themselves and build lasting friendships with their own teammates and those on the opposite teams. A sightseeing day/freeday will be part of this unforgettable trip, which will give you an opportunity to explore Dominican Republics beauty. The competition will be fierce, and all players will come back with a better understanding of baseball around the globe.
