Palm Desert Tournament

The Annual Palm Desert winter baseball tournament is taking place this coming weekend and it once again is absolutely loaded with talent.

The tournament will run from Tuesday, December 6th through Saturday, December 10th and will again be hosted by Palm Desert HS, La Quinta HS, Shadow Hills HS, Indio HS, Xavier HS, and College of the Desert.

This years version will host many of the top teams from Southern California along with some of the top collegiate and pro prospects from the area. The tournament has become an annual stop for professional scouts and this years should be no different as three of the top 100 high school prospects are expected to play. Garrett Mitchell (OLu), Jeremiah Estrada (Palm Desert), and Jayson Gonzalez (Bishop Amat) are all considered Top 100 prospects by most major publications that produce such rankings.

The tournament will also feature countless committed and uncommitted collegiate prospects as is annually the case. The event is widely considered the kickoff to the winter high school tournament season that runs up to the start of the spring season.

Below is the full schedule.

2015 Palm Desert Classic

The Palm Desert Classic has become one of the top annual winter baseball tournaments in SoCal often drawing the top teams from the region and the 2015 edition appears to fall in line with that tradition. The tournament will run from 12/9 thru 12/13 at the eight sites: College of the Desert, La Quinta HS, Indio HS, Shadow Hills HS, Palm Desert HS, Xavier HS, and Palm Springs HS.

The tournament has proven to be one of the most competitive in the fall/winter season and the expectation is that will hold true again in 2015. There are some very competitive matchups early in the tournament which will feature some top players in their respective classes.

Below is the full schedule for the tournament.
