The showcase will be organized by Maverick's Mission and is named in honor of Maverick Baker, a Northern Cambria high school student who passed away from suicide in February of 2022. Maverick was a promising athlete who excelled in football and hockey, but baseball was his true passion.

"Baseball was a sport that Maverick had an undying love for, and Peoples Natural Gas Field was his favorite place to play," said Maverick's stepfather and event coordinator PJ Shell. "I wanted to be able to honor him with the sport that he loved the most in what would have been his senior season, and hosting this game is a great opportunity to do that while also supporting these great athletes from our area."
