We began the summer with a goal to participate in two National Tournaments; Perfect Game Baseball, 16U Pacific Coast Invitational and PBR National Championships at Lakepoint. These are two of the country’s elite tournaments at the 16U level. Every player on this team shares the same goal; to continue playing baseball in college. These national tournaments are how players from around the country get exposure. They allow players to showcase their skills in front of hundreds of the top college baseball coaches in the country.
The team recently returned from the Perfect Game 16U Pacific Coast Invitational where they finished 2nd and brought home Accelerations first Perfect Game trophy, which is currently on display at the facility. More importantly, many Acceleration players impressed NCAA Division 1 College Baseball coaches and scouts who were there recruiting the event. Chase Heying, from Sartell High School, was awarded PG 16U Pacific Coast Invitational Most Valuable Pitcher, while others from Sartell, Royalton, Apollo, and Alexandria also displayed impressive performances throughout the tournament.
Our 16U Athletes will be teaching proper fundamentals in all aspects of the game, while providing a fun and positive environment for aspiring Acceleration Athletes of all skill levels. Athletes will cover Hitting, Pitching, Infield, Outfield, and Catching.
There is pride in being able to call yourself an Acceleration Athlete. Join us in letting our current Acceleration Athletes pass down their knowledge of the game, pass along the Acceleration culture, and help build the Acceleration Athletes of the future.
