Have been invited to pitch at this showcase in June.I am a sophomore in high school,do you think this showcase is worth going to? The cost is going to be high and their will be 300 ball players.The name of the organation is called the perfect game.Would like to hear from Dick.
Keep in mind these showcases are money makers. No way I would waste time and money as a sophomore.
Best way to get recruited is to go to the college camps of your choice. They get to see you first hand.
The coaches at those showcases are there to confirm players on their list. In most cases they are not looking to find players…only confirming players who have been recommended.
I have no idea whether that is a good showcase or not.
What is your goal for going? What is your current velocity?
PG showcases (and most others) are good experiences if you have a goal in mind and can achieve that goal. If you know that there are schools attending that you are interested in AND the pitcher can stand out among the competition then consider going.
PG showcases are expensive. We’ve chosen to go local events that are much cheaper. Additionally, college camps are typically a much better value and you’re guaranteed to be seen by the school (assuming it’s a school you’re interested in).
Can’t stress enough that if you don’t know what it will take to impress the coaches for the schools you’re interested in, then don’t go. Especially if he’s a sophomore and not exceptionally precocious.
Nathan: Since I posted the question about the showcase the entry fee is available to me if I want to go.These folks think I am good enough to stand out at this showcase.We are three weeks into throwing inside on a mound one day a week and I feel like I’m throwing at 80 percent.The coach checked my velocity at 87-90. My control and my off speed was good.
Thanks to Coach Mills I feel really strong and confident after working with him through the fall and winter.I’m really excited about this season coming up.I feel confident I will be throwing in the nineties.
We have decided to go to this showcase to compete with some of the top prospects that will be their.
