The Major League Baseball International European Baseball Elite Camp (formerly European Baseball Academy) was created to provide training for European, New Zealand and African baseball prospects by former major leaguers. It also provides a central scouting location during the weeks it is open and over two dozen Academy alumni have signed contracts with MLB teams. In 2011, Alex Liddi became the first Academy product to be called up to the major leagues. Donald Lutz was the second, making it in 2013. Instructors have included Barry Larkin, Lee Smith, Art Howe, Wally Joyner, Bruce Hurst, John McLaren, Steve Finley, Craig Shipley, Greg Swindell and Dale Murphy. Its success (and that of other baseball academies) led to a Major League Baseball African Academy starting in December 2011.

Through July 2013, over 50 Academy alumni had been signed by MLB organizations:
