Drastically Increase your odds of playing college baseball by attending the West Coast World Series Showcase Camp. Showball Baseball has arranged for 50 Top Colleges (CLICK HERE FOR LIST OF ATTENDING COLLEGE COACHES) from the western region of the United States to provide elite instruction and evaluate your talent level over this 3 day event.

With 50 elite college coaches in attendance, the West Coast World Series Showcase Camp has the largest collection of West Coast coaches in the United States this year.

Important: Parents and Players Must Read

Showball Baseball is changing the landscape of the college baseball recruiting process. The old saying “if you’re good enough, they will find you” just simply isn’t true anymore. As you know, the recruiting process is highly competitive and it’s time to go above and beyond to ensure that you receive a fair opportunity to play college baseball. While most of us rely on our high school or travel/tournament teams for exposure, that just isn’t enough. Times are changing and it’s time to adjust or be left out.

When college coaches attend tournaments, they typically float around throughout the course of the day and have specific players that they need to watch play. When at those specific games, they typically stay anywhere from 1-2 innings in order to see a pitcher pitch or a batter get his 1 at bat. Once that happens, they’re off to see their next targeted player at the next field. Remember, most significant tournaments have anywhere from 50-100 teams in attendance with anywhere from 10-50 fields being utilized. If you’re a player who fly’s slightly under the radar like most of us are, you’re chances of being seen and evaluated by that coach are slim to none. Maybe you were lucky enough to get 1 at bat while that college coach was at the game watching your teammate and maybe you hit the ball well or threw the ball well. However, chances are, it just didn’t matter. It’s very rare and unlikely that you were able to make enough of an impression in just that 1 at bat or inning pitched for the college coaches to pay attention.

That is why the West Coast World Series Showcase camp is such a valuable opportunity. Since most of us are not the quintessential pro prospect, can’t miss players out of High School, we need college coaches to recognize our fundamentals, passion and other qualities that make us the great ballplayers we are. For that to happen, it generally requires that a college coach watches you play multiple times so that they see you consistently get the job done. ONLY in an event like this will you have the opportunity to display the skills necessary for a coach to pay attention and come to that realization. With 3 full days and 50 coaches glued to every move you make, you have the unique chance to demonstrate that you can play at their programs. In the last 4 years, we’ve had the pleasure of working with over 150 Division I coaches and over 1000 players. Of those 1000 players, there have been numerous stories of players receiving scholarships that were considered too small, slow, or simply didn’t throw hard enough to be recruited. However, after 3 days of the Showball event, they were able to make a lasting impression on one of the coaches in attendance and secure a scholarship or a roster spot at their program.

There are no guarantees that you’ll receive a scholarship or play Division I baseball, but there is a guarantee that you’ll receive a fair opportunity to display your skills and be seen. Once again, NO other organization will provide you with the opportunity to display your skills to 50 top Division I/II coaches and schools at one time.
