July 9, 2015: Congratulations to Flower Mound Jaguar Baseball player Parker Scott (1B, Pit; Class of 2016) for being named to the 2015 Texas Rangers Area Code Team.
The Area Code Baseball Games is an elite baseball event that will be held in Long Beach, Calif. The 2015 tournament will take place from August 4 – August 11 at historic Blair Field in Long Beach, Calif.
The 2015 tournament will consist of eight teams representing eight regions nationwide. The tryout process began in June and runs through July. Each team will be built by one of eight Major League Baseball teams. The 2015 teams will include: New York Yankees, Milwaukee Brewers, Texas Rangers, Washington Nationals, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Kansas City Royals and the Oakland Athletics.
This is a unique event in the sense that the top players from around the country will be on the same field for a week being evaluated at the highest level in baseball. Scouts from all 30 Major League teams and the Major League Scouting Bureau are expected to be in attendance. Plus, there will be college coaches from many of the top college baseball programs in the nation.
This tournament serves as the beginning of a nine month interview process culminating with the Major League Baseball Draft the following June.
