D1 Baseball Becomes Official Media Partner for the Frisco College Baseball Classic and Round Rock Classic
D1 Baseball, the leading national voice for college baseball, will be the Official Media Partner for two of the nation’s best college baseball tournaments as part of a new agreement with Peak Events.
Peak Events operates the Frisco College Baseball Classic and the Round Rock Classic, and it calls the events the #BestOutsideOfOmaha as they strive to provide the best student-athlete and fan experience outside of the College World Series in Omaha. The Frisco Classic (FriscoClassic.com), at Dr Pepper Ballpark in the Dallas Metroplex, started in 2017. The inaugural Round Rock Classic (RoundRockClassic.net) debuts this year at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, outside Austin.
Both events feature loaded fields for 2020. The Round Rock Classic comes first, Feb. 21-23, with Houston, Stanford, Tennessee and Texas Tech. The Frisco Classic follows on the next weekend (Feb. 28-March 1) with a field featuring Illinois, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and UCLA. Seven of the eight teams reached regionals last season, and Texas Tech made it to the College World Series, and all eight have high expectations heading into 2020.
D1 Baseball will provide on the scene coverage of both events, with editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers, as well as extensive previews heading into each weekend.
“Peak Events, with the Frisco Classic and now the Round Rock Classic, has been instrumental in helping build popularity and notoriety for college baseball, not only locally in Texas, but nationwide as well,” Rogers said. “The success of their tournaments is a direct result of their hard work and understanding of the college baseball landscape. We are proud to align ourselves with one extremely successful tournament, and another that will soon join that list.”
“D1 Baseball has proven to be the industry leader in college baseball news and information, and we are proud to partner with such a respected organization,” said Nathan Wooldridge, Director of Peak Events. “We are excited to see this partnership continue to help raise the profile of both early-season events as they provide unparalleled content and analysis. This partnership only makes sense as D1 Baseball is the best at what they do, and we are continually striving to provide a regional-like atmosphere and the best tournament experience outside of NCAA postseason play.”
