    Do you guys havd any kids playing on showcase baseball teams this year?

    My oldest has played on a couple of teams, and GEEEZZZUUUSS KROLLY this shit is expensive. Atlanta, Chicago, OU this weekend. It is really a cool experience for these boys that want to get looks though. I am hoping he gets a few offers. Coastal Carolina has been talking to him a little bit, but that is the longest shot of them all. Before asked, he couldn't play at OU, well OU would not look at him.

    I am curious as to his age and baseball experience that led him this type of team. I have a couple sons that play ball. I know it is an open ended question, but not sure what to ask. Thanks.

    he is 17 and will be a SR. to be honest there are a ton of these teams around but I didn't know anything about them. Around soph year is when I should have started him. They played at OU yesterday and there were several scouts there from college teams. He got on because his highschool coach knew a guy that knew a guy kinda thing.

    Do you feel that this showcase is necessary to get offers from schools? Are people selling them pretty hard?

    If he is a good player for a big school, no worries.

    Travel ball and this kind of the same thing. But now they are building power teams and playing a "show case" for these scouts where they can go to one tournament and see all of these players
