See what's happening

While it may seem that the city of #Detroit has great facilities for youth #baseball and #softball the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.
.
We held our first college showcase this summer to help give city kids more exposure and thereby increased access to scholarship opportunities but the entry costs are still way too high and there’s not enough low cost or free baseball/softball programs or year-round training facilities in the city.
.
We are currently fundraising to rectify these barriers for kids and in contributing to our cause you can help provide new sports programming and wrap around services like tutoring, mentoring, and important life-skills development to even more children that currently don’t have those opportunities.

A very happy birthday to #COACH Mauro Mazzotti, our co-founder and technical director of the International Stars College Showcase!
.
Since 2013 Coach Mazz has helped over 60 international #baseball players land college scholarship opportunities and 3 players to sign with @mlb team

On this date last year...
@josh_spez11 from @regbbacademy in #germany signed to play college #baseball at @menlobaseball Menlo College in #california
.
Joshua participated in our annual College Showcase event in #phoenix Arizona where he was scouted in person by the #Menlo coaching staff and offered a scholarship!
.
Crazy, now a year later he’ll have a chance to live out his dreams and play college baseball in the USA!
.
We hope to be back next year to offer our incredible life changing programs and opportunities for ANYONE wishing to accomplish their goals!

A hearty congrats to our long-time player, head coach, and GM for @praguebaseballweek - Wes Roemer, on winning the German Bundesliga Championship last week for @heidekoepfe !!! ...

🙌 A Big Thanks! 🙌
To first time coaches of the @3n2sports 🌟International Stars 🌟 for the 2020 edition of @praguebaseballweek
.
For former players @boomersaunders and @bj5ballplayer along with GM Wes Roemer they were able to pull off an almost unthinkable task of safely bringing together baseballers from across #europe to compete in the prestigious #Prague #Baseball Week held annually every June and where our organization has won championships or finished 2nd every year since 2013.
.
This year the tourney was moved to the end of September and numerous teams had to cancel at the last minute, which made the event incredibly challenging for the committed staff of @baseballczech and @eaglespraha but they were able to pull it off. And although we didn’t make it to the finals for the first time since our inception, (hats off to the Russian national team) our squad competed and showed the #Czech baseball community a thing or two about swag (shoutout to @3n2sports for this year’s #retro look)
.
We couldn’t have done it without our tremendous staff of Boomer, Bjorn, and Wes and thanks to all the players for their dedication!
.
We look forward to getting back to it next year in Prague!

Proud to announce that our very own LHP Nicolo Pinazzi @pinazzolo - who participated in the 2019 College Showcase has signed a professional contract with the Cincinnati @reds !
.
Nicolo came to the college showcase last year in Phoenix Arizona hoping to secure a partial scholarship to college - well, he did that PLUS so much more! By loading up on bananas before the Showcase he was able to hit 92 mph and pitched well enough to gain multiple full scholarships AND interest from multiple @mlb teams.
.
Congrats to Nicolo and his family on this great accomplishment!
