The Palm Beach County Sports Commission is partnering with the Ball Park of the Palm Beaches, Roger Dean Stadium, and Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation to bring the Prospect Select Baseball Fall Classic to The Palm Beaches.

The Prospect Select Baseball Fall Classic will utilize up to 21 diamonds at the Ball Park of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, and the Santaluces Athletic Complex in Lantana. This event, which is scheduled for September 22-24, 2017, will feature at least 80 teams consisting of 1,360 players and 2,880 total participants (athletes, coaches, & spectators). Approximately 56 teams will travel from outside of the area and will bring 952 athletes and 2,016 total traveling visitors. Teams will compete in three (3) age groups (14U, 16U, & 18U).
This tournament will attract elite travel teams from across Florida and the southeastern region of the United States. Some of the nation’s premier high school baseball players will be competing in this tournament. The addition of the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches has allowed the Sports Commission the opportunity to maximize this partnership with Prospect Select. They have now relocated two (2) premier tournaments from other cities in Florida to the Palm Beaches. Prospect Select has also shared their desire to bring more tournaments in the future to Palm Beach County.
