2014 Baseball U CT organizational roster once again reflects diversity:
This year Baseball U CT's 2014 organizational roster will be represented by 40 different high schools, from 3 different states. The diversity that our CT program reflects is only one of the reasons our organization is a college development program for high school players. However, this kind of player diversity helps to create a healthy, yet competitive environment for our student/athletes to develop in, while our certified educational teaching staff, prepares them for the rigors of college baseball and life.

Baseball U New England Wins 2012 Northeast Qualifier Championship
The WWBA NE Qualifier is always one event that any team wants to go out and perform well in because of the reward of gaining a free bid to Jupiter,Fla. The 60 team tournament field was made up of a diverse group of teams from many different states. Some of the top travel programs from the Mid Atlantic region and NY were included in this event.
While the focus for Baseball U New England's college development program is on player development and helping place players in college, make no mistake about it, that when the organization wants to focus on winning they can put up their share of championships.
