The welcome letter from Founder Scott Boras is copied below, but you can also find it in the Arizona Guide 2017.
Dear Parents, Players and Baseball Fans,
We are excited to welcome you to the inaugural Boras Baseball Classic in Arizona. Over the past year we have been gathering a list of teams that we feel best represent the most talented teams in the Southwest.
We truly believe we have identi ed the best of the best in 16 High School Baseball teams throughout the Southwest. We also believe the team that takes the inaugural title of the Boras Baseball Classic of Arizona will have competed against an incredible lineup of extremely talented teams and will have earned the right to be thought of as the premier team in all of the Southwest. While there can only be one winner, our goal is that every athlete participating in the Boras Classic will have had the opportunity to compete against the elite in their age group and showcase their talents on the biggest stage in Arizona.
The Boras Classic is part of a dream we have had for many years and a way to give back to the community and youth sports. Our objective is to give young baseball athletes an opportunity to play against the best and compete on one of the biggest stages for this age group, at no cost to the participants. Our goal is to give young players a platform to showcase their talents to college and professional recruiters while giving the athlete an opportunity that could potentially impact their educational future and athletic dreams.
The Boras Classic of Arizona would like to extend our gratitude to the host sites: Corona Del Sol and
Arcadia High Schools. We also wish to thank the many partners and volunteers that dedicated their time
and resources. Without your help, the Boras Classic would not have been possible. We acknowledge and appreciate the hard work and dedication that went on behind the scenes and was an essential part of making this tournament happen.
Baseball is our national pastime. It is a beautiful expression of sport and passion. For all of us who know, love and appreciate the game of baseball we understand the similarities of the game to life. The challenges, the successes, failures, the camaraderie, competition and friendships are all wrapped up in to seven innings of magical plays and untimely mishaps. These are the moments that grow you and make you proud. This is what makes baseball so great. At the core of this foundation are the athletes that participate and play this sport with the passion in which it was meant to be played. You are the stars of today with the talent, passion and heart to do something really great. No matter whether you win or lose, have a great game or unfavorable one; we salute you for your dedication and thank you for being part of this great event.
Serving the Athletes of Baseball.
