10th Annual Summer Showcase

June 19th and 20th, 2017

GCS Ballpark
2301 Grizzlie Bear Blvd.
Sauget, IL 62206


The Summer Showcase is designed to provide junior college and high school players with the opportunity to be evaluated by and perform in front of college and professional coaches of all levels. Over the two days, players will get to display not only their skill as a baseball player but also their raw athleticism through our evaluation combine. You will not find a better event, with this many coaches for this price. Coaches don’t recruit off of online video, player rankings, or stats so quit wasting time on “showcases” that don’t have coaches in attendance. The best way for a coach to make an evaluation of a player is to see them in person.
