New Episode LIVE now! At The Yard Podcast

LOS ANGELES, CALIF.For the third consecutive year the CIF-SS high school baseball season will once again kick off with the premier high school baseball tournament in Southern California, the Prep Baseball California Spring Invitational. 

With several MLB Draft hopefuls in the 2024 class participating, along with over a dozen more in the 2025 class, the Spring Invitational will provide a one stop shop for scouts and high school baseball fans alike. 

Some notable 2024 MLB Draft prospects participating include: Bryce Rainer (Harvard Westlake), Levi Sterling (Notre Dame), Ethan Schiefelbien (Corona), Derek Curiel (Orange Lutheran), Nick Montgomery (Cypress), Maximo Martinez (Mira Costa), Duncan Marsten (Harvard Westlake), Cade Townsend (Santa Margarita), Logan DeGroot (Santa Margarita), and Josh Springer (Corona), along with seven of the top 20 ranked players in the 2025 class. 

The field once again features a who’s who of baseball programs from the Southern Section. The entire 16 team field made the postseason a year ago including the Final Four in Division I, and the Division II runner-up. 

"We couldn't be happier with the field we've assembled for 2024," said Les Lukach, Prep Baseball California State Director. "From a quality of team standpoint, I'm not sure we could've done much better than this field. With 16 playoff teams from a year ago, these teams all have the pieces to make another playoff run in 2024, and we couldn't be more excited for these teams to start their season in the Spring Invitational."  

There are six new teams in the 2024 field for the Spring Invitational including Mira Costa and second year head coach Andy Diver who brings with him his loaded pitching staff; Maranatha features a good mix of veterans and talented young players with experience; Notre Dame features one of the best MLB Draft pitching prospects in California along with DI arms behind him; South Hills made a run to the DII final and will rely on some new faces for a return trip; La Mirada enters with a world of talent and expectations after another playoff push last year; and Santa Margarita looks to replace over a dozen graduates and make a run at another championship game next spring. 

The Third Annual Prep Baseball California Spring Invitational will take place Saturday, February 10th, Tuesday, February 13th, Thursday, February 15th, and Tuesday, February 20th 2024.

All games will be played at the Great Park in Irvine with the championship taking place on Tuesday, February 20th 2024 at 7:00PM at the Great Park Stadium.
