To help spur international growth of baseball, Major League Baseball partnered with the State Department, as well as with Ripken Baseball, to host 12 Chinese baseball coaches who traveled to the United States to participate in a cultural exchange and develop youth baseball coaching skills in July 2007. The Academy introduced the Chinese delegation to U.S. sports training approaches, including management techniques, and player/coach communication.


The Australian Baseball Academy paid a visit to Compton in a goodwill exchange in June 2007. The Australian Academy brought along their 15-and-under team as well as their 18-and-under team for the two-day tournament against the Urban Youth Academy’s tournament teams.
