Florida League High School Collegiate Showcase Camp
By: Corey Goldfarb | corey@prospectwire.com

Sanford, FL - The Florida League has been one of the better collegiate summer leagues in the country since it’s inception in 2004. 

Since 2004, the Florida League has had over 230 college players drafted in the MLB draft and produced 15 MLB players. A few of the current MLB 25 man roster players that played in the Florida League are: Jacob deGrom, Dee Gordon, Jonathan Lucroy, Chris Heston and Jimmy Nelson. There are plenty of Florida League alumni that will be in the major leagues over the next several years as well.

Rob Sitz, president of the Florida League, has looked to use the college relationships that have been established over the past eleven years through the Florida League to help Orlando area high school players gain college exposure through summer travel teams.

Sitz started the Florida League High School division several years ago, and it’s been growing every year. Players on the high school travel teams are getting exposure, quality instruction, and earning college scholarships each year.

With the college and high school side of the Florida League working together, it's created legitimate college exposure for high school players. Players in the high school division not only earn college scholarships, but they also have a chance at playing in the Florida League as a college player once they've earned that scholarship.

It's a win-win for players. The players travel and play great competition on the high school travel teams in front of college coaches. They then transition to the Florida League, where they play against some of the best college players in the country in front of pro scouts.

This weekend, November 7-8, Prospect Wire will be covering the FLHS College Showcase Camp at Sanford Memorial Stadium, 1201 Mellonville Avenue Sanford, FL 32771.

Stetson, Bethune Cookman College, Seminole State College, Florida Gulf Coast University, Lake Sumter State College, Flagler College, Rollins College, UCF, Embry Riddle, Nova Southeastern University, College of Central Florida, and Florida Southern College will all be in attendance.

There will also be pro scouts in attendance evaluating players.
