Select ball coming to Hearne

It is not a new thing, but it is very new to Hearne, in fact, so new the first tournament is scheduled for early March 2021.

Daniel Green, a founding member of Crossroads Tournaments along with his partner Chris Baade has brought their vision of select baseball to Hearne in the form of a proposal. The proposal has gained ground among the government leaders in Hearne and all eyes will be on the first tournament from the newly formed league.

But first, just what is select league baseball? It is not little league which most parents are very familiar with but a program defined to elevated younger ballplayers through private instruction tested at tournaments. While there are many leagues, VTool (Five Tool) is one of the largest in Texas and one of the most organized and supported. VTool is also the home for Daniel Green’s Brazos Valley Scrappers, a 13u team that his son plays for.
