Formerly So Cal Stars and Stripes Baseball, We are underway under our new club name- Big West Baseball. To Clarify, we are South Orange County Baseball Academy which holds the Big West Elite and Select travel baseball teams. Our organization today was formerly majority members of So Cal Stars and Stripes Baseball travel team. This includes the majority of the coaching staff as well from 8U through 18U teams. Some people still get confused by the name change because there are still some groups popping up in the area using the Stars and Stripes Baseball name and affiliation. The original So Cal Stars and Stripes Baseball 2018 12U group stayed playing under the Stars and Stripes Baseball name (ran by the West Coast territory operator/founder). Recently, we were informed a couple local dads in Ladera, CA were trying to start a team under the name as well.
Why the Name Change?
For us it was a tough decision. Stars and Stripes Sports is an affiliate partnership organization, similar to a franchise and we had no issues with them personally. The owner of the organization is a good guy, with baseball in his blood and has a lot of great aspirations and ideas. He has a great model for certain clubs. But without owning our own brand, came certain limitations. Since we have invested significant capital, time, and blood sweat and and tears into building a quality youth
baseball brand and organization we simply could not call our own, we decided to change our name. in closing, we have no ill will toward Stars and Stripes Sports and wish them the best on their future endeavors.
