Are you Eligible? New NCAA Academic Requirements Begin This Fall

New NCAA Academic Requirements Begin This Fall


Parents and athletes - with most high schools completing their current student and incoming 8th graders course selection for next school year, we wanted to remind everyone of the new academic standards set by the NCAA for student athletes.  

In an effort to bolster academic requirements and better prepare the student athlete the NCAA has made some significant changes for incoming prep athletes beginning in 2016.  We want to make sure everyone is aware of these changes from the current high school athlete to the incoming 8th grade athlete.


There are two major changes in 2016. First, each athlete must have a minimum 2.3 GPA in core classes. Second, each athlete must complete all 10 core classes…

Scout Ball: What it is? What it isn't?

With many amateur baseball programs today pretending to be what they're not, we felt that it's a good time to touch on topic of Scoutball, what it is, and how it's meant to benefit a high school player.

What is Scout Ball?

Scout leagues in Southern California are built by MLB organizations' area scouts. They are designed so that the MLB personnel involved (i.e. area scouts, crosscheckers, and front office staff) can identify high school aged prospects, primarily graduating seniors who are considered "draft guys" for the following year. They put together the best teams compiled of the top high school talent available to create relationships with the players and their families. They track progress, send in prospect reports to the scouting directors, and…

Don't Hit the College Recruiting Panic Button.

Over the last decade, college recruiting has evolved into a more competitive industry than ever. With Perfect Game and USA Baseball taking center stage with their tournaments and events, their are countless other camps and "showcases" for players to attend and for parents to spend $1000's of dollars on over the course of their kids' high school career. On top of that, in the last year, a prominent west coast D1 program committed a 7th grader (2020 grad) and several additional D1 programs committed players that haven't even played a high school game yet. Add in social media and the constant reminder that some players are being recruited, how can parents and players not worry that they're behind the curve…

Dress for Success - Taking Pride in Your Appearance

For those of you who wonder why we as a program pay just as much attention to our dress code off the field as we do our uniform code on the field, here is a fun story that took place recently that we'd like to share with you.

Chris Betts, a former CBA player and Tampa Bay Rays 2nd Round pick in the 2015 MLB Draft recently called up one of our coaches to talk to him about an incident that took place while he was rehabbing in Florida this past summer. A Rays coaching staff member was doing a shuttle run to pick up some players from the hotel, and while all of the other players wore tank tops, t-shirts, athletic shorts, and flip flops, Chris was the only one in a polo shirt and a nice pair of dress shorts…

CBA Marucci wins 2nd straight PGCWS Under Title

by Jeff Dahn


FRESNO, Calif. – The Temecula, Calif.-based CBA Marucci organization put its best foot forward at last year’s inaugural Perfect Game California World Series, winning both the Upperclass and Underclass divisions of the event, which was played in the Los Angeles area.

Much has changed in the 12 months since those championships were contested and in the case of CBA Marucci, it’s changed for the better. The upperclass team made a statement by winning the 17u PG WWBA National Championship in Georgia back in July. Two months later,…
