Our event last year had players attend from nine states and coaches from over 10 states! Spots at the showcase are extremely limited. Our events are structured in shifts to ensure each prospect gets the maximum exposure with all of our college coaches. 

DAY 1: THE TOOLS is your standard pro-style workout day including batting practice, bullpens, defensive showcase, athletic testing. It also includes the Recruiting Roadmap Seminar + Workbook.

DAY 2: THE EXPOSURE consists of live game-play for every player with guaranteed playing time. Each player is assigned to a team and gets to play in a 2.5 hour live game coached by college coaches! 

We have extremely limited spots at each position to assure maximum exposure for each player. Don’t miss out on this event, the largest and most respected showcase event in the Midwest!
