Peak Events and the Round Rock Express are proud to announce a multi-year partnership to host the Round Rock Classic at Dell Diamond beginning Feb. 21-23, 2020.
The Round Rock Classic will take place on the second weekend of the season and will replicate the already established Frisco College Baseball Classic, which takes place in Frisco, Texas on the third weekend. The event will host four Division I teams competing in a round robin format over three days. Each team will play a single game each day for a weekend total of three games. The inaugural Round Rock Classic will feature four of the country’s top teams in 2020, including the Houston Cougars, Stanford Cardinal, Tennessee Volunteers and Texas Tech Red Raiders.
Like the Frisco Classic, the Round Rock Classic will provide a regional-like atmosphere during the second weekend of the college baseball season. Peak Events strives on providing the top tournament experience outside of the College World Series in Omaha and has committed to the brand of #BestOutsideOfOmaha.
“We are excited to bring a College Classic to Round Rock. The Austin area is one of the fastest growing areas in the country and we are thrilled to host some of the nation’s top Division I teams in arguably the top Minor League ballpark in the country. The Round Rock Express have proven to be a top-notch organization and a group that we are anxious to work together with in order to grow this into a top destination for teams in search of early season competition.”Director of Peak Events Nathan Wooldridge said.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Peak Events to host the inaugural Round Rock Classic in 2020,” Express President Chris Almendarez said. “It’s no secret that Central Texas is home to the best baseball fans around, and we can’t wait to see Dell Diamond play host to some of the best collegiate teams in the country next season.”
