August is time for the top summer showcase events for high school and prep players. Pro scouts and college recruiters will be looking to identify the best New England prospects in the leadup to the 2023 MLB Draft.
One of the most scouted events of the summer, the Area Code Games, will take place Aug. 6 to 11 at the University of San Diego (Calif.). The top 220 high school baseball players from across the country in the classes of 2023 and 2024 recently received invites.
Scouts from all 30 Major League teams as well as top NCAA coaches will be in attendance. This tournament serves as the beginning of a year-long interview process culminating with the Major League Baseball Draft the following summer.
