The Baseball Carpenter Cup Classic, named for former Phillies' owners Bob and Ruly Carpenter, began in 1986 and is nationally recognized as a vehicle to help promote the top area high school 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.
