ABOUT THE DREAM SERIES
Jan. 15-18, 2021: Virtual Dream Series
The DREAM Series is a showcase event focused on the dynamics of pitching and catching for a diverse group of high school elite athletes, predominantly African-American, from across the country during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. The event, which was established in 2017, is operated by Major League Baseball and USA Baseball.
This year we are proud to expand the impact of the DREAM Series in a virtual setting to hundreds of amateur athletes, coaches and fans of our game. Participants will receive daily presentations from current and former Major Leaguers, past participants and other industry professionals. The focus of this year's presentations and panel discussions is to inspire athletes and provide keen insight from current and former star Major Leaguers and experts within the game.
Notable guests participating in the 2021 DREAM Series include: CC Sabathia, Devin Williams, Marcus Stroman, Touki Toussaint, Jason Heyward, LaTroy Hawkins, Mike Scioscia, Ron Washington, Jerry Manuel and several others.
