2021 Cepeda Caribbean Classic July 24th-31st, 2021!
For everyone that missed playing baseball in the Dominican Republic this year due to COVID we have great plans for the summer of 2021. We will be returning to the Dominican Republic, “Baseball Capital of the World”, for our 2021 Cepeda Caribbean Classic July 24th-31st, 2021.
Players and their families will get the full Dominican baseball experience while enjoying a 5-star, all-inclusive resort in La Romana, DR.
Players 9-14 will compete between the lines in a tournament-style format against top local competition while one elite team of high school players (varsity starters/college commits) 15-18 will train two days “Dominican Style” and then play three double-headers against 16-18 year old MLB Academy players, one team of uncommitted varsity starters 15-18 will train two days “Dominican Style” and then play three double-headers against 16-18 year old Regional Academy players, and one team of freshman & JV players will 15-18 will train two days “Dominican Style” and then play a 4GG single elimination tournament against local academy teams.
For the selection process, we will travel to several locations across the US for in-person tryouts for players 9-14 and we will also send personal invitations to handpicked elite level players for our high school teams. Tryout dates will be out soon, so stay tuned or you can send in an evaluation video to our staff to be reviewed for consideration immediately.
Building Bridges Between Life and Sports
The Cepeda Baseball Caribbean Classic is a premier tournament showcasing young talent from different parts of the USA, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and other Latin countries each Summer. The 2021 Cepeda Baseball Caribbean Classic will be the 7th year of the Classic and we are extremely happy to have the chance to bring elite players to compete with the best the island has to offer. Cepeda Baseball Club sees over 500+ baseball players in different locations across the states during tryouts and forms its high caliber rosters from these workouts.
Ages competing in the tournament will be 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, & 14U. Depending on the number of players and number of teams from the DR we will either do individual age groups or do combined age groups 9U/10U; 11U/12U; & 13U-14U for our Cepeda USA teams.
We are also doing something new this year and selecting by invitation only two teams of elite high school players from across the country to train for two days at the Cano Baseball Academy in San Pedro and to play six games against MLB Dominican Academy players 16-18 that have already signed as international free agents.
