April 2024

The 2024 USA-LABC Gold Teams are complete and ready to win Gold for the United States this year in the LABC 2024. Forty-nine National Trials, thousands of players from across the United States, and hundreds of video submissions provided the talent pool from which ten United States teams were formed.


Covering seven Regions of the United States (West Coast, PNW, Midwest, Northeast, Southeast, South, and Southwest), USA-LABC National Trial events saw an average of 178 players per event.


"This year was exceptional in both attendance and competitiveness. We are excited about our changes to win Gold." Stated USA-LABC National Director Jim Parque.


To get rostered, an athletes must attend a national trial or submit a video. If they make this first cut, they will be interviewed by USA-LABC staffing and if they pass this cut, they are selected to represent the United States in the LABC.


"A tryout only gives you so much, but the interview process tells us who is wearing the uniform and whether they have what it takes mentally to compete at our level." Stated USA Staffing Eric Fisher.


It is a big honor for any young athlete to be recognized at this level. But an even bigger honor to win Gold. The LABC 2024 will feature 8-12 teams per age division and truly brings out the competitive side of baseball.


No watered down tournaments, no "pay your way in" bids, just the best competing on a stage that represents the country. The LABC has seen the likes of Juan Soto, Tatis, Fernandez, and many other MLB stars. The United States' alumni list runs up the the Major Leagues as well.


"In 2016, our 13U team has a young Tre' Morgan playing first and Tommy White playing third. In 2023, these two athletes were the third and first basemen for LSU on their College World Series winning squad." Stated Parque.


To win Gold, a team must rank in the top four of their age division (10U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 16U, and 18U). They will play doubleheaders every day in tropical heat and humidity. From there, they enter Medal Rounds that finish with a crowning of the champion.


"We have larger rosters due to the elements, doubleheaders, and no days off platform. Pitching is what wins it and that is why we expand our rosters." Stated USA-LABC coach Daniel Fornaro.
