In addition to the 4 game guarantee, all players 10-15U will also participate in something called "The DR Sandlot Experience" where they will play adult/coach supervised games on local DR sandlot fields and get a real taste of Dominican baseball. These fields are the same fields where superstars like Sammy Sosa, Adrian Beltre, Fernando Tatis Jr, and Vlad Jr got their introductions to the great game of baseball.

There will be two off days built in where players and their families will shop and spend time at the beach in Punta Cana (Wednesday) & and have time for excursions (Saturday).
Players 16-18 will spend five full days training at the Cano Baseball Academy in San Pedro de Macoris. Players will be trained the same way Dominican players are trained to prepare to sign as MLB International free agents at the age of 16. All trainings will be led by Jose Cano, father of MLB superstar Robinson Cano. Multiple players trained by Jose Cano have signed contracts with MLB teams. This opportunity is limited to 30 players only.
Requesting a spot does not guarantee a spot on one of our Cepeda USA rosters. ALL players must tryout or submit a video to be considered for selection. Because of the level of competition in the Dominican Republic, and to protect the integrity of our Cepeda USA teams, it is highly recommended that players have at least played Rec League All-Stars and ideally Travel Ball to ensure the best opportunity for a memorable experience.
