The San Diego Force NEED Your Help
July 12, 2014
We at the San Diego Force really need your help. We are looking for donations to help our players and staff afford to go to Wichita for the NBC World Series at the end of July. The trip would be a dream come true for our players as the tournament is a chance to show off their baseball skills and compete against the best teams in the United States and abroad. It also gives our players the rare opportunity to be seen by many professional and collegiate scouts. Last year, we had eight players sign professional contracts out of Wichita. In the past six years, we have had over 70 players receive the opportunity to play out their dreams in a professional uniform.
Any amount of money you could donate would greatly help our cause of getting our players out to Wichita. We are truly grateful for your support and dedication to our organization. The players mean everything and we want to be able to provide them with the best opportunites we can. Going to Wichita IS that opportunity of a lifetime. Please click on the links below to help us follow our dreams:

Giles has a blazing 100 MPH fastball that gets there quick. It’s on you in a blink of eye and ball is in the catcher's glove when the hitter is swinging.
Giles was dominant at Double-A to begin the 2014 season, sporting a 1.20 ERA in 13 games and racking up 29 strikeouts (while walking just five) in 15 innings.
He was promoted to Triple-A a month ago, where he went 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA and five saves. He struck out 9 and walked 8 in 13 2/3 innings at Lehigh
