Alaska Baseball Academy
Welcome To

Our mission

“To help Alaskan baseball players realize their potential by providing professional instruction and the opportunity for individual development by means of athletic competition.”

Each year the Alaska Baseball Academy selects the top High School baseball players from around the state of Alaska to participate in one of the largest and most prestigious showcase events in the nation.  The Arizona Senior Fall Classic held each October has a tremendous following and last year 477 college coaches and recruiters from 243 schools attended the event.  The fall classic is set up to maximize the player’s exposure to both the professional scout and the college recruiter.

One testimonial from an NCAA Division 1 coach states: “The AZ Fall Classic is one of the most beneficial tournaments we attend. The location and facilities are fantastic for college coaches and professional scouts.”

Note from Coach Wylie

Last year the 2017 Alaska Baseball Academy team was young but talented and represented our organization and our state well at the Arizona Senior Fall Classic. The best part of having a young squad is all the returning players the following year and we’ll have plenty this year. Almost all of our 2017 seniors have received college baseball offers and all but one of them has committed to play college baseball!  That is impressive for a team from the 49th state.

The Senior Fall Classic showcase we attend has more top end high school prospects than any gathering west of the Mississippi and with typically close to 500 college coaches and recruiters in attendance, along with multiple scouts from all 30 MLB clubs. Participating in this showcase is always a fantastic opportunity for our players to get unbelievable exposure. In 2017 we once again had a good following of MLB and college scouts on our trail during much of the tournament.

Our Alaska Baseball Academy Junior Sockeyes teams also had fantastic seasons.  The 12U Sockeyes started slow but ended the season strong. The 11U squad played in 4 tournaments and finishing with 3 championships and one 3rd place finish.  The 3 championships included a second consecutive Alaska State Comp Team Championship.  Both Junior Sockeyes teams traveled to Arizona for USSSA tournaments as 12U teams and both were only one game away from the championship game losing in the semi-finals.  

We are looking forward to another great year in 2018.  We have expanded to 4 comp teams in the Junior Sockeyes family. We have a 10U team, two 12U teams and a 14U team. We intend to travel to Arizona in September with the 12 & 14U squads.  

God bless all of you and remember the main reason we play this great game is to HAVE FUN!  

Go Sockeyes!
