Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 • At Diamond Nation
Diamond Nation’s Garden State Underclass Games has, since its inception in 2013, quickly become one of the premier underclass showcases in the Northeast. Played in mid-June and at the end of the high school season, the Garden State Games attracts the top 100 underclassmen in New Jersey. The select field is broken down into four 25-man teams and two games are played simultaneously on adjacent fields at the state’s premier showcase facility. Hundreds of college coaches and professional scouts attend this marquee event each year. Diamond Nation also initiated the Futures Games in 2017 for younger players and looks forward to playing host to the Second Futures Games in 2018. The Garden State Underclass Games are free of charge to players as it’s Diamond Nation's effort to provide exposure and opportunity to all of the top High School players in NJ.
“This years games might be the most talented to date,” said Diamond Nation recruiting coordinator Steve DiTrolio. “We have had some really talented players and teams over the past six years but I think the 2019 class is just a little deeper than the others. “I am looking forward to another great night and to reaffirm why New Jersey baseball should be in the conversation as one of the best baseball states in the country.”
