“[In December 2013] I stepped on a plane to Miami to see if I could make my biggest dream in life come true. This dream is something I’ve worked towards my entire life and I always set my baseball on the first place in my life. Once I got older I didn’t know how I could become a baseball player in the USA if I wouldn’t get signed by a professional MLB club. Boomer Baseball International College Showcase helped me with my dream in a different way than I expected. BBI gave me the chance to showcase myself in front of tons of scouts which enabled me to choose different colleges across the United States. Currently, I am in Texas playing in one of the best Junior College conferences in the U.S., for Odessa College. So thank you to Boomer Baseball International, thanks a lot!”

“I am glad I have been a part of the Boomer Baseball International community. Playing for International Stars at the Prague baseball week in 2014 with the guys from all over the world was a great experience! Moreover, BBI was a key step in my life because it helped me to get to college in the USA. BBI gave me the opportunity to show myself at the college showcase in front of numerous college coaches from different parts of the states. Currently, I play in Texas for the Ranger Junior College in one of the strongest conference in the nation.”

“I was fortunate enough to to be part of the International All-Star team that competed and won in the 2014 Prague Baseball Week. All the guys involved turned in some great performances, that lead to back to back titles for the team at Prague Baseball week. I got to know a lot of great ball players during the week, along with having a blast. I would highly recommend the International Stars team to anyone that gets the opportunity to play.”

“[I] was a last minute addition (to the International Stars roster for Prague Baseball Week) to add some depth in the Infield. Our team was represented by players from 9 countries and [we] had a talented international squad, with a deep bench and plenty of pitching to help take on other country’s national teams. After 4 days of pool play (and getting to explore Prague on our day off), we beat an impressive Czech National Team in the championship for the 2nd year in a row. Whether you’re looking to advance your baseball career overseas by catching on with another club or just experience baseball in a new city for a week, I would highly recommend Boomer’s Baseball Tours, especially Prague Baseball Week with the International Stars.”

“…Prague was one of the best experiences of my life… Great group of guys, great baseball and a great city. There’s certainly not much more you could ask for than that. If you ever need another pitcher for future tournaments with the stars let me know as I’d love to play for you again.”

Thanks to Boomer Baseball International I was able to extend my season in Europe by transferring to the Jánossomorja Rascals for the Hungarian Playoffs. It was a fun weekend in Budapest as we were able to split the weekend’s game and enjoy the Budapest nightlife. All expenses were paid for and I was fairly compensated.”
