Canes 14U National Team set to take the field in 2018!

For the 1st time in the 12 year existence of the Canes Baseball program a 14U National Team will take the field in 2018!!

The Canes 14U National Team will compete in several of the top national events for the 14U age group throughout the spring, summer and fall of 2018

The base of this team is be founded on providing current National level players from the Canes existing 14U regional youth programs in conjunction with top level 14U players from across the United States. This model allows players to continue to train and develop locally while being able to compete in National level tournaments with the best players in the country. We believe this allows the National level 14U player the opportunity to flourish in these National level tournaments by surrounding themselves with other players of their caliber/goals to promote competition, development and exposure.

The event schedule for these teams are as follows:

**Practices will be held on the day before each event begins**

June 16 – June 20, 2018: USA Baseball 14U National East Championships (Jupiter, FL)

June 22 – 29, 2018:  PG 14U WWBA National Championships (Emerson, GA)

July 23 – 27, 2018: PG 14U World Series (Emerson, GA)

October 26 – 29, 2018: PG Freshman World Championships (Jupiter, FL)*Fall 2018

The team will be coached by Canes General Manager Dan Gitzen. During Gitzen’s tenure with the Canes Baseball program over 800 players have gone on to play college baseball, over 100 drafted in the MLB draft and been involved in the recruitment and formation of 7 of the 9 National Championship teams under the Canes Baseball banner

Assisting Gitzen will be Sammy Serrano (bio found here), John Batchelor (Canes 15U National HC), and Mike Williams (bio found here)

Additionally since this is an event only team there is no fee to participate on this team. All coaches’ hotel rooms, travel, and tournament fees are covered by the program. Special Event Uniforms will be provided to the players during their participation in the events.

Players will be asked to participate in a small fundraiser for the participation in these events
