Bradenton, FL - As we get closer to Prospect Wire's 2014 All-State Showcase presented by the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fl more and more talent continues to get added to the list.
As IMG transitions into one the nicest baseball complexes in the country, PW is excited to continue to run events at the academy and can't wait for the new fields and stadium to be completed.
Where did we find most of these players attending this showcase?
PW scouts scoured the state this spring to try and find uncommitted high school seniors looking to extend their baseball careers as well as freshman and sophomore's that are under the college recruiting radar.
Another twist to the showcase is for the 2015 and 2016 grads, they'll have a chance to get evaluated for PW's inaugural Pro Classic and PW's Underclass All-American Games at USF in Tampa, Fl this August.
Our staff, along with the professional scouts will be evaluating the 2015 grads to determine if they are "Pro Classic" type players. Only 32 players will be invited to attend the PW Pro Classic. The 2016 grads will have a chance to be invited to our Underclass All-American Games which traditionally draws dozens of colleges and has produced several high MLB draft picks.
For the 2014 grads, PW will look to evaluate their ability and help determine if they have the talent to play at the college level. College coaches are always looking for seniors that have "fallen through the cracks" for whatever reasons. Our staff takes a lot of pride in helping players that need that connection to college coaches because for whatever reasons they were'nt seen at the right time, right place by a college coach.
If you think you fit one of these categories please email Mike Maerz at email@example.com for more information on the showcase.
