Launched in the fall of 2016, The Future Stars Series began as a grassroots 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.
New Balance has strengthened their commitment to providing the most comprehensive amateur baseball player identification and development experience available by securing a two-year extension with PROGRAM 15 as the Official Global Grassroots Player Identification and Development Program for New Balance Baseball.
PROGRAM 15 has been responsible for executing the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series Combines and Tournaments. Founded by CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth, PROGRAM 15 boasts a faculty and staff that includes multiple Major League All-Stars and World Series veterans.
Amateur players identified by PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts and coaches are submitted to New Balance Baseball for advanced opportunities and potential selection to regional and national team rosters for New Balance sponsored events.
PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth, says, “I couldn’t be happier to extend the relationship with New Balance and the family they have created. We have had a ton of synergy from the start in our vision and our goals. New Balance has tasked us to lead their Global Grassroots Initiatives, and the designation of Global Player Identification and development group is a distinction we are honored to hold”.
The New Balance Future Stars Series has experienced exponential growth since its inception. News of the grassroots effort to reach as many undiscovered players as possible spread quickly and grabbed the attention of over 100 of the most respected organizations in amateur baseball who have come on board as PROGRAM 15 / Future Stars Series Regional Directors and Partners.
