TRADITION: Started in 2011, the All-Area Honors North vs. South Charity Games feature some of the top high school student-athletes in Florida, competing in a North vs. South doubleheader format in support of Honda Birdies for Children, SACSN, and the Nicklaus Children’s Healthcare Foundation. Our collective efforts have contributed over $1 million dollars to the Birdies for Children program.
The Collegiate Main Event Showcase takes place immediately before the games and features our top uncommitted player selections. Besides having college coaches on hand who are currently seeking recruits, we send the athlete highlights and measurements to our national network of coaches and help match coach’s open player needs with the uncommitted participants.
DISTINCTION: Our committee selects athletes we feel can succeed at the collegiate level. Playing ability and proven success on and off the field are paramount. Our track record is pretty good with having hundreds of alumni playing annually at every level of collegiate baseball (NCAA D1, D2, D3, NAIA, JUCO). Over 100 Alumni drafted by MLB, including 14 first-round picks, and 10 making their MLB debut.
RECOGNITION: All the participants will be featured on our page in the January 2023 (National ABCA Coaches Convention) issue of Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. This is distributed to every college coach and MLB scout in the country.
LEADERSHIP: Our athletes demonstrate leadership by committing their day in support our charitable efforts with this event. Our collective efforts impact communities in Florida and beyond.. Athletes receive 12 hours of documented community service for participating in the event and the hours go toward school requirements. Also, along with your other extra-curricular activities, your award recognition and service hours go toward maximizing merit scholarships. NCAA college baseball is a partial athletic scholarship sport. It’s important to maximize merit-scholarship opportunities by having a complete and well-rounded college resume.
Participating athletes receive the following:
- Award Letter with 12 hours of community service.
- Donation receipt from Honda Birdies for Children.
- 12 guesses to win a new Honda vehicle by guessing the correct # of birdies at the 2023 Honda Classic.
- Recognition in the January issue of Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
Player contribution is $250
No athlete is left behind due to financial constraints. Thanks to a grant from The Honda Classic Cares, we have need based scholarships available to insure participation for all deserving athletes.
