The Arizona Sophomore Fall Classic takes place at the Mariners & Padres Spring Training Complex in Peoria, AZ. This highly competitive wood bat tournament has a 4-game guarantee with each pool winner advancing to the championship bracket. This is the top fall West Coast showcase gathering many of the best players in the 2027 graduation class and younger.
Baseball Northwest selects top players from the region to attend this event, by evaluation throughout the spring season, our summer Prospect Evaluation Camps, at our Northwest Championships in August, and by recommendation by college coaches and professional scouts. This event has benefited many players over the past 20 years who have gone on to play college and professional baseball.
Baseball Northwest has been attending the AZ Fall Classic since it originated in 1995 and is proud to exclusively represent the Northwest in the event. Our teams have made the playoffs each of the past 8 years, winning the championship in 2015, 2020, and 2023. We look forward to another strong showing in 2024!
