It began as Texas vs Puerto Rico and quickly grew into Texas vs the World.
In 2009, Texas vs Puerto Rico burst on the scene as Puerto Rico brought a High School age team to the Metroplex to face some of the area's top high schools including Plano West (who had just won the national championship in 2008), Highland Park, Arlington Martin, Mansfield, and even a Dallas ISD team made up of some of the Districts top players. Standout players included Arlington Martin's Bran Ragira, who would go on to sign with Stanford University and eventually be drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 4th round. Original games were held at Arlington Martin, Highland Park, Plano West, Reverchon Park, and other local facilities. The tournament has gone on to include other global teams from the Dominican Republic as well as teams from around the US.
Each year, Texas vs the World has grown and it has grown to include the Major League Baseball Scouting Bureau Pro Workout.
