I feel, for a D-1 or D-2 prospective player the 16u WWBA is just probably as important, or even more so than the 17u these days... I can tell you, our 16u finished in the final-four, and at one game at LakePoint, we literally had hundreds of scouts and college coaches watching our guys... There was probably 1000 +/- people watching our game that night!

If I were a parent of a 12-year-old, I'd have real reservations about turning my son over to someone who thinks that 1 reader out of a universe of a 1,000 might have an interest in my team. If you suddenly smarten up, you'll do yourself and your team a favor and take it to the Texas board,

Sometimes (most times) there is only one game a day. Try to take advantage of seeing the area, with or without your player. There is a lot to see and do in Atlanta/Kennesaw area. One team hotel had a shuttle to the surrounding area. Toward the end of the week the parents sent the kids off bowling for a few hours. If you don't know about the Georgia red clay, buy some Iron Out. We soaked baseball pants in the bathtub. There used to be a thread about good places to eat near East Cobb. Maybe...

Great ideas. thanks! We have been to Atlanta before for cousin/friends/business visits, and live in nearby NC so we are familiar with North Carolina red clay. Shout usually works with oxi-clean powder, but we may try Iron Out - it sounds intriguing! We have one game per day except one day where we have 2 games. So will be nice to have some free time. Thanks for the restaurant recommendations, I will start a list with your suggestions. We are foodies and love finding fun eats in the areas we...

No metal cleats allowed at LakePoint. Pitchers mound is also turf. Some prefer molded cleats and some prefer regular turf shoes. I hope you have good weather and a great trip.

Thank you - son is aware of that and has regular turf shoes he likes. Question - does PG evaluate each pitcher in tournament games or only in showcase events? (may need to start a new thread or research older ones). Thanks again.

Also realize that not all games are at Lakepoint, so make sure he also has his regular cleats. I know PG records every pitch, and each pitchers fastest velocity. They do not grade them ,but I believe all of this goes into their master database for rankings My son will also be playing in the WWBA. We are fortunate that Lakepoint is 30 miles from the house.

@dadofa17 - yes, we have 3 games at Lakepoint, 3 at HS and one at a college. He is bringing both. Do you know if that pitch info will go into his profile and be available to us? Good luck to your son later this week - it's almost here!

If your son is a pitcher and will pitch at Lakepoint, I highly recommend he gets a pair of molded cleats. My son pitched there the first year it opened and his turf shoes did not keep him from sliding around. He had molded cleats last year and didn't slip or slide at all. I also recommend buying the molded cleats before arriving as most sporting goods stores around Lakepoint were pretty much sold out of molded cleats.

If he pitches at any PG tournament they'll have someone with guns behind home plate recording his velo for his different types of pitches. A few weeks later he'll have those numbers added to his profile (at least it was a few weeks later when my 2016 pitched in GA). If/when he attends a showcase they'll show the velo data right away and then a few weeks later he'll have a write up posted and a PG ranking (like 7.5, 8, 8.5, etc). I'm assuming there is more behind the scenes that a college...

@goin_yard - I will look into getting molded cleats or seeing what he & dad think. he wears size 15 or 16 so that may be a challenge so close to the start date. his turf shoes are comfortable and support but I don't like the sound of the possibility of slipping around. Thanks for the suggestion. @mkbaseballdad - thanks for the info, was not sure how that worked with velo recording. appreciate it.

Check out largefeet.com. My son wears a size 15 and this store is great. It is in downtown Atlanta and they carry athletic shoes size 14 and up. Shaq gets his size 22s there. my son loves having a place where he can try shoes on. �� I am not sure if they have molded cleats in stock. But if you have a free day, it will be worth the drive. (It is not an impressive store front and you have to walk up to the third floor for the athletic shoes. But they have a great selection.

Son is there now at 14U WWBA. I couldn't go. All games are on Gamechanger. Games at Lakepoint are on Trackman. Every pitch gets velocity, spin rate, axis, horizontal and vertical movement plus more. Every batted ball gets exit velocity, spin, distance and about another 8 data points. Pretty cool. Oh yeah, it also keeps score. https://connect.baseball.track...oard?Date=2016-06-28

@WSOXFANATIC Good luck to your son! We ended up ordering cleats from newbalance outlet.com and they are being shipped to our hotel. Son was not sure the turf shoes would handle well on the turf mound, so he will have choices in footwear now. We are excited to be here! First game tomorrow @8:15 am so we will have an early wake up call! Best to your son and his team!

Surprised your team above has THREE games at PG Lakepoint; our team has only one this year, many seem to have 2, but 3 is awesome. It is tough for the pitchers who pitch elsewhere as they don't get all the data (last year my son pitched off site and they only had the radar on him for one inning, and he is stuck with that number in his PG profile despite going unofficially 3 mph higher on a dad's radar a few innings later). That's my only whine as it is an awesome tournament. I'm not going...

In our case last year we had college coaches at every game. Lakepoint would have consistently more but we had several no matter where we were. Son's team won pool. Our playoff game was the first one played at Lakepoint and only game going on in the entire complex. Kid pitching was going to UGA. Had to be 100+coaches and scouts watching our one game. Our lead off guy took kid deep over LCF on second pitch. It was a wild scene. Good luck to all this week.

East Cobb will have plenty of colleges watching. We played at a non-lake Point field at 9:00 this morning. There were plenty of colleges watching. Now, a lot of these recruiters know who they want to see, so depending on who is on the two teams, you could get more or less exposure.

He told me there was a decent number of coaches on hand for his game at East Cobb. Was very impressed with the facility, adding it was better than many college fields he's played at! Got to pitch 3 1/3, w/4K, no walks. Hopeful to get a few more innings next week. His team is 2-0 so having a lot of fun thus far.
