Nashville, TN - Over the two weeks of the Music City Classic, our scouting staff scouted over 100 teams and more than 1,500 players.
The tournament is a summer destination for college coaches, as there were roughly 100 college coaches combined over the 17U and 16U tournaments.
Our scouts were out and about at the different college and high school venues trying to find the better players. There were plenty to be found!
For those travel organizations that have never been to the Music City Classic, here are 5 reasons to play in Nashville next summer from late June to early July:
1. About 100 total college coaches between the 17U and 16U. Players get plenty of exposure against high level competition. Our scouting and social media coverage of the event helped enhance players exposure for colleges that were there and for colleges that we'rent there.
2. It's an invite only tournament with a waiting list. What does that mean? The teams are all legit!
3. The three main fields are all within 15 minutes of each other, two of them are all turf college fields. (Vanderbilt and Belmont) Lipscomb, the other main college field used is a great park and set-up. All the other college or high school fields used are close to each other and if teams play a little further out at an Austin Peay, Volunteer State, or Cumberland, they get double headers scheduled.
4. The umpires are NCAA qualified and are consistent with the way they call games.
5. It's Nashville! Good baseball, great exposure, and a great city for a family to spend time together!
Look for our Music City Classic 17U and 16U reports on Monday-7/20.
