SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE
Big Bat Mustangs Baseball has announced it has finalized a deal with the Tampa Bay Rays to become the home of a 16-18 and under scout team for the Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. For players to be eligible and invited to play on this team, they must be considered a NCAA Division 1 or MLB prospect.
“These scout teams are part of a very elite group of teams across the county,” said Ray Brookins, owner of Big Bat Mustang Baseball and Softball. “There are only a couple MLB supported scout teams in California, therefore we anticipate having players from hundreds of miles away be invited to play on this prestigious team. We also plan to have local athletes who fit the criteria be invited to play as well.”
Interested players please contact Big Bat Baseball at 775-287-0020.
