FRISCO, TX – Peak Events, LLC in partnership with the Frisco RoughRiders, is pleased to announce that the Frisco College Baseball Classic is set to return to Riders Field, the home of the Texas Rangers’ Double-A affiliate, on March 3-5, 2023.
The 2023 tournament is set to feature Mississippi State, Oklahoma, California, and Ohio State and will be held at Riders Field for the seventh year in a row.
“It is amazing that we are in year 7 of the Frisco College Baseball Classic. The partnership with the Frisco RoughRiders from the field crew & Diamond Dave to Ryan and the operations staff up to Scott and the management team has truly been second to none and the primary reason this event has had success over the past 6 years. We are thankful and excited to see where this event will go in another 7 years,” said Nathan Wooldridge, Vice President of Peak Events, LLC.
Oklahoma is appearing in its third Peak Events tournament, previously playing in the 2021 Karbach Round Rock Classic and Frisco Classic. Additionally, California and Mississippi State will be making their second visit to Frisco after appearing in 2018 and 2019.
These four teams have combined for over 10,500 wins, 113 NCAA tournament appearances, 66 regular season conference titles, and 33 NCAA Men’s College World Series appearances. The Mississippi State Bulldogs were crowned the 2021 Men’s College World Series National Champions, while the Oklahoma Sooners are coming off a runners-up finish at the 2022 College World Series in Omaha.
“We are thrilled to once again host the Frisco College Baseball Classic. Over the last 6 years hosting this event, we have welcomed some incredible competition into Riders Field and we expect to see more great baseball in this year’s Classic. Peak Events has been an incredible partner and they make this event truly the best outside of Omaha,” said Scott Burchett, Frisco RoughRiders

More on the Frisco RoughRiders:
The Frisco RoughRiders are the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The team was founded in 2003 and has finished first among all Double-A franchises in attendance in each of the last 15 seasons (2005-2019). In August 2014, the RoughRiders were purchased by an ownership group led by Chuck Greenberg. Since then, the new ownership group, together with the City of Frisco, has spearheaded numerous major franchise enhancements, investing over $8 million in a wide array of facility upgrades and improvements, including a state-of-the-art HD video board, sound system, Bull Moose Saloon, InTouch Grille, Riders Outpost Team Store and the world's largest water feature in a sports facility, the massive Lazy River. These enhancements earned the Riders and the City of Frisco Ballpark Digest's prestigious "Best Ballpark Renovation" award for two consecutive years (2015 and 2016). More than 170 former RoughRiders players have gone on to play Major League Baseball.
