TAMPA, FL - The
prestigious, annual PW All-Florida Weekend Showcase has been set for
October 1-3, 2010. The event is tentatively scheduled at Roger Dean in
Jupiter. The event has rotated sites since it's inception beginning at
FIU Baseball Stadium in 2007, moving up to The Washington Nationals
Complex in 2008, the Lake Myrtle Complex in 2009 and will likely debut
at Roger Dean complex in 2010.
At least 1 first round draft pick from Florida has attended each year of it's existence and is invitation only. This past June's MLB Draft saw over 40 All-Florida participants get drafted, a new PW record. Over 100 college coaches and scouts checked in at the gate last year, also a new event record as the event continues to grow in popularity in the scouting community.
The players go through a showcase styled workout of 60 yard dash, and batting practice and take a pregame IF/OF before each of the 3 guaranteed games. A lot of players left last year's event with at least 10 at bats during the event, some had as many as 15 at bats.
Coaches, scouts and even parents if you have a player that you'd like to recommend for the event that needs to be there, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
