Summer Showcase

dp logo1CIU fielddrone20DP's Summer Showcase:On Wednesday & Thursday, June 10-11 at Columbia International University, we will host our 15th Diamond Prospects Summer Showcase available to 2020, 2021, 2022 & 2023 grads. Since 2006 we have filled every summer 'open' event before the deadline. It has historically been the college coaches first/next look at who they want to follow during the next few months. This year is not every other year either. The 2020 showcase is not for everyone but if you believe you are a college-bound player, these may be two very valuable days for your career...*Government Guidelines will be followed, so this event will not look the same. But we will comply and ask that all players and parents do too.

Deadline May 31...DP Note: At present we DO intend to have this event as scheduled. Until it's full, any player that signs up will have a credit toward a future showcase IF we have to cancel. BUT, the goal is to play baseball!

dp logo1Do's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read! Sometimes I like to think that 90 percent of what is said and done by parents is due to limited knowledge of a certain situation and/or how to handle situations. Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
