The Phillies Carpenter Cup Classic powered by ENGIE is recognized nationally as one of the finest baseball tournaments for high school students and has been a catalyst for many players to receive scholarships and admission to some of the country's finest universities. Additionally, many Carpenter Cup Classic participants have gone on to big league careers including current Phillie Brett Olberholtzer, Phillies broadcaster Ben Davis, Mike Trout, Mike Piazza, Mike Koplove, David Miller and Bobby Higginson.
