ROBERTO ALOMAR AND MLB PARTNER UP TO BRING PR12 TO PUERTO RICO

Media Release, Jan 4, PR12

For the second consecutive year, National Baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar and Major League Baseball have partnered together to host the 2nd Annual Puerto Rico 12 Showcase Baseball Tournament (PR12) in San Juan, Puerto Rico from July 25 to July 30, 2019.

The objective of PR12 is to select the best 150 Puerto Rican born amateur players that have college eligibility.  These selected players will participate in a showcase baseball tournament in front of Major League Scouts and College Recruiters.

“I am really excited to team up with Major League Baseball and the Commissioner’s Office for the 2nd Annual PR12.  In 2018, we were able to make such a huge impact for amateur players in Puerto Rico. Several players signed with MLB teams, but more importantly we were able to bring some attention to the baseball talent that exists in Puerto Rico.  I am truly thankful for all the assistance we have received from the Puerto Rican baseball community, government affairs, Petra Media, and the countless volunteers and staff that make this event happen”.

Tryouts for the tournament will be held across the island over the course of the Summer and players will be selected by a committee made up of Alomar Sports Inc. and Major League Scouting Bureau.

Six teams will participate in a Scouting Combine followed by a five-day tournament with a champion being crowned at the end of the week.  Each team is guaranteed 5 games.

2019 Tryout locations, dates and registration to be released the first week of February.

General Inquiries should be sent to info@alomarsports.com

I am thrilled to partner with Major League Baseball and the Commissioner’s Office on this amazing initiative for youth baseball in my home country of Puerto Rico. With the help of the Toronto Blue Jays, we have been able to do something similar in Canada over the last several years and the impact on baseball development in that country has been substantial. With encouragement from Commissioner Manfred, it is my goal to bring this same opportunity back to Puerto Rico for amateur players. I am really excited to see the talent that Puerto Rico has to offer.
