For the first time ever, Massachusetts will be represented in the 2023 Geico High School Baseball National Championship Series, which will pit All-Star teams from each state against each other during a tournament in Dallas, Texas, from June 27-30.
To qualify for the national championship event, Team Massachusetts will have to advance from a regional tournament that includes New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania from June 20-23 at Rutgers University. No other New England state besides Massachusetts will field a team.
Each state's All-Star team will have an 18-man roster, and five roster spots can change between the regional and national championship weekends. The head coach of the Massachusetts squad will be reigning MIAA D1 champion Blair Bourque of Taunton High. He will round out his staff with Franklin coach Zach Brown, BC High coach Steve Healy and Braintree assistant Jamie Walsh.
The team will include prep, private and public school players who reside in Massachusetts. Fifteen of the 18 roster spots must go to players in the Class of 2024. Up to three can go to players in the Class of 2025. Bourque and his staff are currently attempting to assemble the most talented roster possible. Here is a look at 30 players who could be in consideration for roster spots.
