Tampa - Prospect Wire will be covering BPA's Prospect ID Camp on Sunday Nov. 10.
BPA or Baseball Pros Academy was started by baseball lifer Andy Barkett who is the current AA manager of the Jacksonville Suns an affiliate of the Miami Marlins. Barkett runs the Orlando based BPA teams that feature one 18U and two 16U teams in Orlando.
One of Barkett's Jacksonville Suns coaches helps run the newly formed Tampa area BPA teams with Mickey Rivera. The Tampa area BPA teams already have one 16U and one 18U and are forming a 14U team as well.
With as much baseball knowledge as BPA's staff has, I'm sure they'll begin to make some noise in PW tournaments as well as other national tournaments. As evidence, BPA made the Final Four in PW's Fall Natl Championships at the end of October in their first ever Prospect Wire event.
BPA will be conducting a Prospect ID Camp at Sanford Memorial Stadium in Sanford Fl, this weekend Nov. 9-10. Day 1 will consist of an introduction, a pro-style workout, 60 yard dash and bullpens. Everything starts at 3pm but get there early if you haven't already registered. The day will end around 8:30pm.
Day 2 will be one on one instruction from college coaches and then games. The day starts at 10am with instruction and ends with games played until around 3pm.
There are more than 20 college coaches and professional scouts planning to attend BPA's Prospect ID Camp.
