Participation in youth sports, especially at the elite level, can put a financial strain on families. Houston Marriott Energy Corridor is committed to easing that burden as top amateur baseball players from across the country make their way to Houston this summer to compete for college scholarships, MLB Draft consideration, and a National Championship title.
PROGRAM 15 has teamed up with the Houston Marriott Energy Corridor to offer players and their families special rates during the 2018 New Balance Future Stars Series National Championship Tournament, happening June 27th through July 30th in Houston, TX.
PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth says, “As a Lifetime Platinum member, I’ve stayed at Marriott hotels for many nights over the last 20 years. Always first-class people and first class hotels. They’re kind of the unofficial hotel of the scouting community. The people at the Energy Corridor and the Marriott brand line up perfectly with our commitment to families to make youth baseball affordable and drive the game across all economic levels. We are excited to work together on this endeavor to Change the Game”.
The Future Stars Series is the global initiative between New Balance and Program 15 to elevate the game of baseball by providing amateur baseball players across all economic levels an opportunity to reach their full potential through the training, development, and guidance of former MLB players, scouts, and coaches.
Players identified by PROGRAM 15 staff at the National Tournament will be submitted to New Balance Baseball for advanced opportunities and potential to represent their country at the New Balance Future Stars Series International Week.
