The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing the way that we, as global citizens, think, act, gather, learn, and live our daily lives.
With the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Diamond Spikes Baseball Directors are now advising all its Coaches to suspend/delay practice and play through Monday June 1.
We will continue to consult with appropriate medical advisors, government health officials and our volunteer leaders around the world, and we are committed to doing the best we can for the safety and well-being of our players, families and fans.
We will continue to update our Organization as we move forward. We are extremely optimistic that we will play ball this summer and will once again enjoy America's Past time.

The First College Showcase of 2020 is in the books. Diamond Spikes Baseball along with Partners Axcess Baseball and MaXEffort Baseball held the first College Baseball Showcase of 2020 at MaXEffort Training in Farmingdale. This years event hosted nearly 90 of the top unsigned high school baseball players from Long Island, NYC, and the Bronx. In attendance were 20 College Coaches from schools throughout the Tri-State area. Coaches from D2, D3, and JUCO schools got to evaluate players during a pro style workout run by the Diamond Spikes Coaching Staff. Vinny Messana from Axcess Baseball was on hand to evaluate all players. Coach Bill Faust of the Diamond Spikes along with Coaches Rich Pecoraro, Adam Heidenfelder, Joey Morris and Tyler Reynolds ran a pro style workout, ensuring all players had enough opportunity to showcase their skills for the College Coaches.
College Coaches were able to interact with players during the showcase. 13 Players reported receiving College offers and many of the remaining players have been contacted by college coaches or have made arrangements to visit the school and meet with the coaches and teams on campus.
The Diamond Spikes, Dodger Nation, LI Strong, NY9 and sixteen other travel baseball programs were represented at the showcase. Proving once again that the talent level on Long Island and NYC is a strong as anywhere the country.
A Special thanks goes out to Mike Cardino of Diamond Spikes Baseball along with Brad Jackson of MaXEffort and Vinny Messana of Axcess Baseball who work diligently throughout the last year to to make the showcase success.
We will back on January 18th 2021 for our 7th Consecutive Showcase.
