13TH ANNUAL BATTLE OF THE BORDER
MIDDLE SCHOOL BASEBALL ALL-STAR SHOWCASE GAMES
… Tradition Filled Event To Be Held June 8 & 9 For Rising 7th, 8th and 9th Graders
The 13th Annual Battle of the Border Middle School All-Star Showcase Games will take the field on June 8th and 9th at Arthur Goodman Park in downtown Matthews. 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 thirteenth 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 friends from middle school and travel baseball.
After so many students lost at least one season and for some two seasons of middle school play, the Battle of the Border takes on an all new place for fun for the players.
Over the first twelve years of the event, over 250 former event alumni have advanced to play college baseball and nearly three 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 to compete and gain respect among their peers, and social media and newspaper recognition.
Rising Seventh and Eighth grade players will take the field on June 8th and rising ninth -graders will follow on June 9th. In most cases, we will keep players together from their school teams as well. In all twelve years of the event, we have experienced complete sell-outs as spaces are limited. Please do not hesitate in enrolling your child in this exciting, tradition-filled event. All play is equally divided and the batting lineups are random and do not reset at the top for game two, they maintain a rolling order into game two.
