The Disney High School All American Experience

Attention HS Baseball Players:

You are invited to join us, CrabFest All American Baseball, for an extraordinary winter travel baseball opportunity. We refer to it as “The Disney High School All American Experience”.  We are competing in Disney’s New Year’s Classic at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. This complex is the Spring Training Home of the Atlanta Braves in Orlando, FL.

What makes this experience special? In addition to the tournament games, CrabFest players will have an exclusive opportunity to showcase their talents in front of collegiate coaches. Unlike other teams participating in the tournament this Showcase is only available to our CrabFest players.  It will take place at a private complex the evening of December 29th.

The expectation is that players will travel and room with their families.  If players are unable to travel with their families, it is possible for player’s accommodations and travel to be arranged by CrabFest.  Please email before registering, if travel and housing are needed. Team families are asked to make travel and hotel reservations individually through the provided link once you register.  Information about room blocks at the ESPN/Disney properties will be available by November 15th.   

Time is of the essence so please register ASAP. Registration is on a first come first serve basisIt is recommended that all players register by November 6th in order for CrabFest to secure your uniforms and practice apparel.
