Prospect Wire will host its Florida state finals for four age groups of high school baseball players June 8 through 12, at Ed Smith Stadium and the Buck O’Neil Sports Complex.
The tournament is designed to showcase the players’ abilities for consideration by college and professional scouts. The event is expected to include more than 2,000 participants and 1,000 spectators each day.
“We are thrilled to bring the tournament back to Sarasota and the Orioles’ facilities,” says Matt Bomeisl with Prospect Wire. “This is the largest amateur state championship in summer baseball.”
In addition, Suncoast Baseball will hold its second tournament in June with up to 20 teams expected to participate.
