California Collegiate League All-Star Game

Dear Academy Members and Friends,

The Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy will be hosting the California Collegiate League All-Star Game tomorrow night. The game will be nationally televised live on Fox Sports West, beginning at 7 p.m. PST.

The California Collegiate League is the league in which the Academy Barons participate. The game features two teams; the CCL North and the CCL South. The Barons players will participate on the CCL South team, the home team in this game. The game will showcase the top talent in the League, including our very own OF DJ Wallace, LHP Jason Broussard, and UTIL Juan Avena. As of now, Juan will be starting at first base and batting 7th in the lineup. DJ will be the secondary DH, batting 6th in the lineup. Jason will throw the top half of the 5th inning.

We hope to make this a very festive event. Feel free to invite your families and friends. Admission is $10 for adults, while youth 12 and under are free. See you there!

Arizona’s Gregorius and Peralta Visit the Academy

Almost every weekend we have a surprise visit from a Major League Baseball player or two. Today Arizona Diamondbacks David Peralta and Didi Gregorius stopped by the Academy.

Peralta, born in Venezuela, made his major league debut in the outfield on June 1, 2014 with the Diamondbacks. Gregorius, from the Netherlands, is thriving at shortstop and has a slugging percentage of .522. Both are putting in work for the Arizona Diamondbacks and hope for a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight.

Check out the pictures the two stars took with Academy members!
