HP will host its 1st Annual HP World Series at Waller High School. We are really excited about the format. Here are a few details as we get this off the ground! For this event, we will create a total of 8 teams. Each teams coaching staff and senior captains have been drawn out of a hat. Next step, our new coaching staff and team captains will draft a team from all of the players in our showcase program. We will start the draft with our 2027 class, then move to 2026 and so forth until our snake draft is complete and all players have been selected. After we have finalized the team rosters, we will post them on this page along with the team schedules and uniforms. This event is a 3 game guarantee, but is also double elimination. HP has hired umpires for the games and they will regulate the clock as well as final scores. Saturday evening, preceding all the games we will have a skills competition. Every player will be assigned a role and this will be voted on amongst the team and captains. Our skills competition events will be an Around the horn, Golden arm, Fastest man and a Home Run Derby. The winners of each event will be given a prize. Sunday our teams will duke it out until we officially have an HP World Series CHAMP. We are really looking forward to seeing all the boys compete within the program and allow them to connect with all of our staff and different players. We plan to invite college coaches to attend as well as post players/pitchers of the game. We are encouraging family and friends to attend all the games as well at the skills competition to create an electric atmosphere.
