MBL.com College Challenge 2017

The MLB.com College Challenge (Nov. 9 & 10) invites students to come up with the next big idea in baseball technology and present their idea to a panel of MLB.com judges who are also SU alumni! We’ll be kicking off this year’s event in style! We’ll start with dinner at the Carrier Dome’s Club 44 followed by an all-night hack-a-thon style event. The following evening, teams will have the opportunity to pitch their final product to a panel of MLB and SU judges. Teams will submit and present competing solutions and will be evaluated based on select criteria. Teams that make it to the final round will present to a panel of all MLB judges and the best idea will be crowned the 2017 MLB College Challenge Champion! Team registration is due by Sunday, Nov. 5, at 11:59 p.m.  Click here for more information. Contact Julie Walas Huynh at jlwalas@syr.edu with any questions.
