Langley Blaze looking for players
The Langley Blaze Fall Ball program is accepting applications for baseball players between the ages of 13 and 18.
With 29 players — including three first rounders in the past four years — drafted by Major League Baseball teams since 2001, the Blaze are one of the premier programs across the country.
The fall ball program sees the players play 24 games beginning in late August until mid October. Following that, the team heads indoors to the Blaze's winter facilities to refine their skills and work with trainers on their physical conditioning.
The Blaze head to Arizona for their annual spring training schedule, which includes games against professional players at the rookie and Class A levels and against U.S. college teams.
The team also takes an annual trip to Los Angeles for more elite-level competition during the summer season.
Players from Langley, Maple Ridge, Aldergrove and Cloverdale are invited to register.
If a player is out of that catchment area, they must seek permission from their local team first. First-year players outside of the B.C. Premier Baseball League teams' catchment area require a release.
