Jeremy Booth, PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, says, “Last year we focused on baseball. With the level of play we had along with the teams coming to compete this summer, we wanted to focus on the off-field experience in 2018 to complement the baseball and give our families the best Houston has to offer. Seeing the hometown team step up to give affordable baseball to the families attending is outstanding for everyone and shows the class of the organization.”
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.
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.
