The modern United States Navy Baseball
Club was founded by retired U.S. Navy Commander Terry Allvord in Pensacola, Florida
in 1990 before moving to San Diego for the 1993 season. This program is the leader in armed forces baseball in the modern era. Allvord went on to establish over 40 single-service armed forces teams in every branch of the military around the globe. Tryouts are held every year to form the most talented military and first responders team to compete as the U.S. Military All-Stars
during the annual "Red, White and Blue Tour"
The team features active duty, reserve
, Veterans, Delayed Entry Program and First Responders. The continuation of two wars has limited the availability of armed forces players. As a result, beginning in 2010 the team will be known as "Heroes of the Diamond" allowing a limited number of former MLB, current professional, summer collegiate and first responders the opportunity to join the tour. Players interested in the military and willing to support the mission will continue to pay their own expenses
while off-duty to compete against the finest professional, independent and summer collegiate programs in the world.
