TERRA Institute and Manager Ernie Padron will head into the tourney as a high seed.

In less than two weeks, one of the top high school baseball Spring Break tournaments in the nation will take place right here in South Florida. The HSBN March Madness Shootout presented by Galeo Spices will begin on Saturday, March 21st and run until champions are crowned at St. Thomas University on Thursday, March 26th. This 32-team tournament pits some of the most accomplished baseball programs in the area, including 11 former Florida state champions and three former National Champions.

“It’s a no-brainer for us to host these games,” said St. Thomas University Manager Jorge Perez. “It’s good for players to see our facility and the field itself, the quality of the field we have. The kids enjoy being in it and for us, we get to see some of the best talent in the area.”

Teams will be divided into two brackets of play, the Gold and Black Brackets. Brackets will be selected based upon overall seedings, which will be announced on March 16th. The teams seeded within the top 16 will compile the Gold Bracket, and the teams seeded from 17 to 32 will make up the Black Bracket.

With the tournament just weeks away, everyone is getting excited.

“We decided not to travel this year simply because of the teams we heard are in this,” admitted Flanagan Manager Ray Evans, whose Falcons are three-time state champions and also won the 2010 National Championship. “We thought we would be better off to stay put, even though we like to travel just to see what else is out there. But this time we stayed put simply because of the type of talent that is going to be in this tournament, from the teams that have really good individuals and then some really good teams overall. It will be really cool to have the best teams from the tri-county region, and it is really going to promote our area.”

Another national championship manager agreed.

“We knew that if HSBN is doing it, it will be a great one,” Archbishop McCarthy Manager Rich Bielski said. “If you do well in this tournament it’s a very good sign for your team.”

With such high level of play, the HSBN March Madness Shootout expects to draw all the top college and pro scouts from across the country.

“I personally want to thank HSBN for the high school tournament it is hosting in the area of South Florida,” Chicago White Sox scout Jose “Pepe” Ortega said. “It is allowing us as scouts here in the area to be able to scout the talent here locally, and is allowing the players to be able to showcase their talents. The scouts here in South Florida completely back HSBN up 100%.”

Beyond the high level of competition are many other aspects that contribute to make the HSBN March Madness Shootout unique and exciting. Each team is guaranteed to play four games in all, and every team will play on Opening Day on March 21st. Teams that are eliminated from the winners bracket will then compete in the consolation pool, and consolation pool games will be assigned by HSBN to ensure teams face some fresh competition.

Most programs have a school or two out there that they have always wished to face, and yet never got such an opportunity. The HSBN March Madness Shootout could make those games a reality.

“It’s a great idea to do it that way,” agreed Bielski. “There are always teams you want to play but just don’t have room on your schedule, especially now that we are required to play two district games. This tournament enables the chance for some old rivalry games too, and that is exciting.”

Archbishop knows a thing or two about winning tournaments, and will enter as a top seed.

Due to the success the Mavericks have enjoyed in recent years, they know they will have a target on their backs. Yet in a field as deep and talented as this one, predicting an ultimate champion seems impossible to do. It is a tournament crown so many teams can realistically strive for, and the true winners will be all those in attendance to watch the best teams in the South Florida baseball community battle their way to the title.

Not a great deal of action in this supremely pitched regional quarterfinal game between the St. Brendan Sabres and LaSalle Royal Lions, so I zoomed in and took as many profile pics as I could. With tons to do tonight, not much time to edit them so I hope they came out good!

Talk about the celebrity treatment! Congratulations to Holmes Braddock head coach Manny Fernandez for winning his 300th game. Miami’s own international star, Jon Secada, showed up before the game to give the coach an award for reaching his career milestone. As a gift from his players, they gave him a walk-off win to get him on his way towards 400…
