Tournament didn’t end the way we’d like. That’s Baseball sometimes. But thank you to all the wonderful families for making the trip out to SoCal. Boys created life long memories, played some good ball and had fun. That’s what it’s all about!! Already looking forward to Vegas in November. Go Thunder!!

Great first day back yesterday. Looking forward to more off season work!!


AZ Slam Baseball is pleased to announce we’ve made the move over to Canyon Thunder. We are thrilled for this amazing opportunity!! We’d like to thank Paul Panaccione and the Thunder Staff for this opportunity and welcoming us in to the Thunder Family. What an incredible opportunity for the boys to be apart of a program that’s an extension of GCU Baseball with access to GCU Coaches, facilities and former players. Canyon Thunder is player first program focused on development and getting athletes to the next level. So incredibly thankful and excited for our boys & their future. Go Thunder!!!


It’s always a heartbreaker when you make it to the championship game and come up short… but these boys have nothing to hang their heads about. This week they went 6-1. They were first place overall in the Team skills competition, homerun derby, pitching velocity, 60 yard dash and around the horn. To top it off congratulations to Ace Sapp and Gabe McDowell for being selected to play in the Youth Baseball All American Games.

I want to give a huge shout out to all of the parents and families who made the sacrifice to get their boys here. We have an incredible and I am deeply grateful for the love and support you have given these boys and this team. It’s been a great 2020-2021 season! GO SLAM!!!
