Cepeda Baseball Camps & Clinics was founded in 2005 and has since taken great strides every year to gel with the youth in select leagues in California and surrounding states. Hosting camps / clinics in and out of California, has strongly marked our brand of baseball instruction within the top sports programs across the states. Each summer Cepeda Baseball Camps host annual events in New York, Alaska, Canada & Texas. Not to mention our local camps and clinics in Northern/ Southern California.
Cepeda Baseball Clubs Inc. was started in 2009. With one 13U team made up of mostly 10/11 year old players, and most (TODAY) are still a part of the Cepeda family. CBC now carries 5 teams in the travel ball circuit. Our previous years have been very successful, and every year we raise the bar on the talent we carry and compete against. Every year players are coming to CBC and finding a new home for their development In the game.
Our company is head by Ali Cepeda. Ali is the son of SF Giants great and Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda. While playing with the Giants in the minor league system, and independent baseball for 4 years after, Ali learned the hard work that it takes to be successful in baseball, but also life. Cepeda played 8 years of professional baseball, and is still learning everyday how to work with young ball players and help them develop their unique ability in baseball.
