Florida Burn Bay Area is a Tampa travel baseball team. Our mission is to develop players by surrounding them with the best, most positive coaches that not only teach baseball fundamentals, but do it in a way that fosters a lifelong love for the game and an appreciation for the many life lessons baseball has to offer. The net result is we are creating champions on the field, in the classroom and in our communities. An additional purpose of the Bay Area Burn is to provide all the positives of travel ball – allowing the best players to learn from the best coaches and benefit from playing with and against the best players, but in a balanced way that does not overuse players arms, or burn them out on baseball. This approach is in the best interest of our children, families and communities. The teams will be developed to play at Cooperstown Dreams Park in their 12U years.
Tryouts for our 9U team will be July 29, 2018, 1pm to 3pm at Bayshore Little League Majors Field – see tryouts page for registration link and details. Contact 813-417-8448 if any questions.
The Florida Burn was developed in 2011 with the purpose of gaining more exposure for players living on the west coast of Florida. Behind the guidance of directors Mark Guthrie and Craig Faulkner, the Burn quickly rose through the elite high school travel baseball ranks and developed a reputation for excellence.
Florida Burn teams have captured numerous Perfect Game and other national championships competing against the best organizations in the country. More importantly, the Burn players have been able to learn how to play the game at a high level through a coaching staff comprised of former major/minor league veterans, former collegiate players, multiple national high school coaches of the year, and more.
The Florida Burn coaches and staff have been involved in literally hundreds of player placements into the collegiate ranks at all levels. The Burn staff has also mentored, guided, and aided its players through the professional draft and the intricate details involved.
The Burn will field teams in all of the various high school graduation classes each summer. If you want to play travel ball at the highest level we invite you to check us out. If you would like to schedule a tryout or inquire about a roster spot for the 2018 summer season please email Florida Burn Staff.
