The Andre Dawson Classic, an annual round-robin tournament that was launched in 2008 to showcase Historically Black Colleges and Universities, took place this weekend in New Orleans.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Urban Edge Network to further highlight the Andre Dawson Classic,” said Del Matthews, vice president of baseball development at MLB. “Their reach across the student body and alumni of the entire HBCU network will bring much needed attention to the programs in our tournament and HBCU baseball overall. As a proud HBCU alumnus, I am excited for the potential around this effort.”
