BAWS 2024 & Past BAWS


Thank you so much for another great event and for the awesome tweet for Will! That was so helpful for him, thank you so much.

I was so impressed with BAWS last year and I was excited Will would get to compete again at such a great local event. And then the world started falling apart. You have no idea how much this baseball mom appreciates getting to see my kid back out there doing what he’s worked so hard for. It was so much for you to get through to make it happen. A pandemic, wildfires, so much. When some organizations called it quits, you showed those kids how to push through and make it happen.

Thank you for everything you did to provide this opportunity!

Blaine - thank you very much for having Griffin be a part of the Bay Area World Series. He really enjoyed getting to know other players and compete. You put in on a first class event that was run very well and well attended by colleges. 

Thanks again. I know it is a lot of work!

I just wanted to reach out to you personally as a dad and express gratitude for your recognition of Jake and inclusion of him at various events. (including just saying hello to him as it means a lot). Its hard to get noticed up in Chico and for the first time ever Jake is starting to get some more serious interest from D-1 coaches. I know at least one of them mentioned PBR and BAWS videos.

Anyway, I appreciate your efforts for Jake and all these other kids.  Trying to navigate your way to college is tough enough without help.

Just wanted to say thanks for providing Adam with the opportunity to workout for you and your staff on July 28th, and throw a few innings at BAWS.

Genuinely impressed with how well you communicate across the entire Norcal community -- and your events are run equally as impressive.  Professional, focused, high quality experience, motivating for every player.

He plans to keep working hard with CCB & Sanzeri, and hopes to stay on your/PBR's radar in the coming years. 

Thank you again, and congrats on a great event.

Hi Blaine,

We would like to thank you so much for putting on a great weekend for the boys. The way you ran the event was really good. You did a great job at making sure all the kids got seen and got their reps in. The field and the stadium felt comfortable and welcoming.

This was a great event at a great venue. From a spectators point of view, it looked like the BAWS staff and River Islands staff actually cared about the kids and the the event... don't see that too much anymore. Too many events these days are just about collecting the money and taking care of the dudes they want to take care of.

We wanted to thank you in person but could tell you were extremely busy. What YOU and PBR do for so many boys means a lot! It’s much appreciated by our family. Hope to see you at one of the events and meet you in person this summer.

Best Regards,
Brittany & Mike Haynes

Happy 4th, Blaine.

I wanted to give you an update on my son, Nate, and what your event did for him.  Within weeks of attending the BAWS, we had at least four schools reach out to him (UC Davis, Sac State, University of Nevada, and George Fox), I know there was more but those are the ones that stuck out.  As of last week, Nate has verbally committed to UC Davis.  I just want you to know I am personally spreading the word to this year’s incoming Juniors that if you are a top player on your team you should try your best to get an invite to the BAWS, as that is where the scouts are.

Again thank you for putting on a quality event. 

Best wishes,
