This year the Baseball Carpenter Cup celebrates its 28th Anniversary!
Developed in 1986 and named for former Phillies' owners Bob and Ruly Carpenter, the Carpenter Cup Classic, which is recognized nationally as one of the finest baseball tournaments for high school students, is a vehicle to help promote the top area baseball players.
Each year more than 400 high school players from the tri-state area are able to showcase their skills in front of major league scouts and college/university coaches. The Carpenter Cup has been a catalyst for many players to receive scholarships or admission to some of the country's finest universities.
Additionally many Carpenter Cup participants have gone on to big league careers including Mike Piazza, Ben Davis, Mike Koplove, David Miller and Bobby Higginson.
This season the Carpenter Cup was played in two locations. Preliminary rounds were played at Ashburn Field in FDR Park and the semi-finals and championship were played at Citizens Bank Park.
