Q: What should I bring?
You should bring all baseball equipment necessary for your position (bat, glove, batting gloves, spikes/turf shoes, water bottle).
Q: Are there local airports for the event:
Yes. Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
Q: Do you recommend local hotels?
No. There are many different types of hotels available in the area. However, we leave the hotel decision process up to each individual family, their budgets, tastes and needs.
Q: How many players will be in attendance?
We do not have a set number however we will cap it at 75 players.
Every Coach will view and evaluate every player’s participation on all levels.
Q: Are the colleges advertised confirmed to attend the showcase?
Yes. The colleges advertised to attend our camps are confirmed multiple times.
There may be circumstances out of our control that prohibit the scheduled college representative from the confirmed college list. Every showcase experiences this and we are hopeful that this will be minimal, as it has been in the past. All efforts are made to find a comparable replacement.
Q: What do I wear?
Please bring your own baseball pants, Jersey, hat, bat, glove(s), cleats, belt, turf shoes or sneakers, sunglasses, sunscreen, pine tar, and any other gear you may want or need.
Portions of the day may take place on turf or indoors so turfs or sneakers are a must. Those without turfs or sneakers will have to sit out of that event.
Catchers should bring their own gear. Catchers must wear full protective gear, please wear a cup.
Please bring whatever you would need to be ready to play ball.
Please bring peanut free snacks/ lunch. Don’t forget to pack a water or sports drink.
Q: Will my son or I get to speak with college coaches?
Yes. College coaches will be giving valuable/insightful speeches throughout the showcase. We will have times set aside for player and parent interaction with the coaches.
We advocate, encourage and have planned time slots throughout the day for group conversations with college coaches.
However, keep in mind that our goal is to have the coaches focused (all eyes on players) during the showcase and if they are talking to individual parents during the event this hinders many other player's opportunities.
The goal is to allow the coaches to process all players and assess the degree of interest in each participating player.
Each participant will be provided a full list of colleges and college coach’s contacts.
Q: What type of bats should we use?
ALL players will use - 3 BBCOR or a wood bat.
Q: What type of shoes should I wear?
Please bring metal cleats and turf shoes.
Q: Will players eat lunch?
There is no set time for lunch however players will have time to eat during the compliance section of the camp. Please bring a lite peanut free lunch. We encourage you to bring healthy snacks and water.
