To Secure Your Position in the Battle of the Border


… Tradition Filled Event To Be Held June 11 & 12 For 6th-8th Graders

The 11th Annual Battle of the Border Middle School All Star Showcase Games will take the field on June 11th and 12th  at Dave Jones Field at East Mecklenburg High School. This tradition filled baseball event for top players in the Greater Charlotte region is always among the most fun events of the year for middle school baseball players.  The Battle of the Border Showcase, now in its eleventh year,  has developed a reputation for being a fun and competitive event for middle school students. Each player will participate in two games, a defensive workout, Golden Arm and Road Runner Skill Competitions and spend time playing with and against friend from middle school and travel baseball.

Over the first ten years of the event, over 200  former event alumni have advanced to play college baseball and nearly two dozen have had the opportunity to play professional baseball.   More importantly, all players have enjoyed the opportunity to play with and against players that have formed relationships over the first few years of their baseball careers.

In addition to the games, defensive workout and fun inside and out of the dugouts, each player will receive a Battle of the Border Showcase jersey, the opportunity play on one of the nicest high school fields in the area and social media and newspaper recognition.

Sixth and Seventh grade players will take the field on June 11th and eight graders will follow on June 12th.   In most cases, we will keep players together from their school teams as well.  In all ten years of the event, we have experienced complete sell outs as spaces are limited.  Please do not hesitate in enrolling your child for this exciting, tradition filled event.
