The Area Code Games, the most elite high school baseball tournament in the country, is happening now at Blair Field in Long Beach, CA, home of the Dirtbags. These kids are the next superstars of the MLB, and New Balance treats them as such.
You may have seen a hint of these on @nbbaseball‘s Instagram, but we wanted to get you the full spread, and thanks to StudentSports.com, who is doing a tremendous job covering the games, we are able to do just that.
Expect to see more from WPW on the ACGs in the coming days.

StudentSports.com has daily stats up on their site, and in the box scores, they actually have each hitter’s best EXIT SPEED for the day. Not only is it awesome but, as a pitcher, its scary:
106 mph!? And they’re swinging wood! If you are a pitcher, do your face a favor and keep that glove up. There are high school kids hitting balls 106 mph and you’re the only lunatic standing 55 feet away, front and center.
