The consensus already among players, coaches and parents is that First Class Baseball created a special opportunity for players with its pilot Extended Spring Training League!
Day one of evals included players from high schools around the Bay Area, including Serra, Las Lomas, San Benito, Foothill, Menlo Atherton, Castro Valley, California, and more. Many times throughout the workout players or coaches were whispering to one another, "How did THAT GUY not make his high school team?" The truth is that we are in one of the top, most competitive baseball locations in the entire world. Some schools have a high concentration of talent, meaning there are GOOD players who do not quite make it. This was the thinking behind the Extended Spring Training League and it showed at the workout.
Jason Sekany, who runs Total Player Center (Baseball Training) and also coaches for USA Baseball (the head team being the United States Olympic Team), delivered a critical message to the players, "your help in identifying players and getting them out here next week is obviously going to help the entire league concept, which will directly be helping yourselves. Please spread the word and encourage players to check in on the website and come play next Sunday."
