The Minnesota Blizzard Elite program has had 31 player commitments to college this year from the 2018, 2019 and 2020 class.
With only 12 2018 players yet to commit, this will make seven straight years that the Blizzard program has had 30 or more college commitments and has pushed the total number of college players since 2008 to just over 300. In addition, we have had just over 30 players who have either been drafted or signed as a free agent.
Development and competing with and against the top players in the country are a big part of becoming a better baseball player as well as the recruiting process.
Our tryouts for our Blizzard summer teams are coming up on February 24th and we are looking forward to making new 2019, 2020 and 2021 (15u) teams to play a very competitive schedule.
In addition, our Blizzard Elite and Fall program tryouts (August-March) will be held the last week of June and the first two weeks of July for ages 9u-18u.
