Re: Clinics, Camps & Prospects Camps, Is there a Difference?

If your son is an identified prospect by a program and on their board they will personally invite him in a manner other than a form letter. Otherwise, they’re inviting you to help finance their spring trip. If you’re getting mailers they probably purchased the registration list from events your son signed up for. What is humorous is when receiving “saw you play at ....” and the player signed up but didn’t attend.

All programs are different but being that your son is a junior, I would go with Prospect Camp. They are usually limited in players and instruction is given by the coaches, not others who come in to help run camps. Limit the Prospect Camp to your sons position. For example if he is a pitcher, go with Pitchers prospect camp. Just the word prospect doesn't really describe the type of camp. It should be a camp from a program that your son is interested in. Coaches like players who attend...

My philosophy on this is when in doubt and you can swing it financially do it. I tell my two boys let’s not have any regrets when this is over in a few years. I’d rather them look back and say they tried and didn’t work out rather than wonder what would have happened if we would have went to a schools camp, and specially when talking about a “dream school”. It worked out for my oldest, a camp in December was where he got on the radar, they followed him the following summer and ultimately...

The "what if" is what we are facing right now. My son has attended on P5 camp already, which an offer came out of. He has another P5 camp schedule mid January. The weekend after that another P5 school wants him to come out to their camp. The first January camp already constitutes some significant travel, but it's a school that is in my son's top 5 list. The other possible January camp is also significant travel and it's a school that recently started talking to my son. We are trying to...

Your son is a freshman who has not played a high school game yet, correct. Your son has plenty of time. He can politely tell any coach that he isn't ready to make any decisions. Don't be afraid. He can be the one to drive the bus, not them.

PG can be powerful for sure. Depending upon many things its not for everyone. You're son will be a needle in a haystack. They have tens of thousands of kids they're looking at any given weekend at tournaments alone. There showcases are 400-500 kids minimum. College coaches mostly incognito on sidelines so you never know if you may have caught an eye. 99% will leave the showcase and or tournament never hearing a word from anyone that might have seen them. 88 max velo is good but that will not...

I would highly recommend the Complete Showcase. Guaranteed a minimum amount of coaches (usually 30 but could be up to 100) and a maximum amount of participants. Your son will be evaluated by 2 college coaches but will be looked at by more. No more wondering if a college scout or coach will be at a game or whether you have to make the championship round to be seen.

If he has never done a PG showcase, your son may want to attend at least one late spring/early summer to see where he is relative to his peers and get some updated video and verified numbers. If he does well enough, he could receive an invite to the PG National Showcase, which is loaded with college coaches who want to see the best match ups. As far as tournament play this summer, USA Baseball 17U National Team Championships (east or west), 17U WWBA, and an Area Code tryout if you can get an...

Thanks for all the posts. My 2017 has been to two PG WWBA tournaments, but not to any of the PG showcases yet. That is what prompted my initial question about the value and relative pros and cons of PG run tournaments and showcases. At tournaments, the players are evaluated on game performances and that is always a hit or miss in my opinion (depending on where you play for example at Lakepoint or area HS fields, who you are playing, and who is watching you at any given point when you are...

Phanatic, Comparing a PG showcase to a PG tournament is apples and oranges. Both are fruits and a necessary part of recruiting, IMO, but they accomplish different goals. The PG Tournament is where players show they can get out decent hitters, rather than simply striking out the same kid from a rival high school over and over. And, if they get hit a little bit, they can show their makeup....among other things. Their velo, command, etc. may or may not be noted. The PG Showcase is where they...

Thanks for the reply Redbird5. I totally appreciate the feedback. Definitely worth looking at the tourneys and showcases as separate, that both feed into an equation. Also, point well taken about the "dad with rose colored glasses - not Oakleys". He was at 88 max (sitting around 86) but at a camp that most coaches there saw, but no recording via a neutral entity like PG. So that is needed. Thank you.

Redbird, Thanks for the explanation, good one BTW. Often I want to say some of the same things, but am afraid it would come off the wrong way and people would think I am BSing. Phanatic, Sounds like your son could create some interest. So much depends on the other things once the velocity is recognized. Is that 86-88 look like the end or does it look like there is more to come in the near future? Are the other pitches usable now and how much can they improve? Can he pitch? I can tell you...

I would do the PG Northeast Showcase in June and set his measurables heading into the summer season. You'll have his velo numbers, PG rating, video and comparison with his class out there for anyone to see post-showcase plus you'll have whatever coaches are there watching him. Redbird has a lot more knowledge and experience than I do but my 2016 played with 2 RHPs with similar to your 2017 (one last year and one this year). Both had max velos 1 MPH below yours and sat/sit around the same and...

Thanks again for all the suggestions. I am convinced on the need for going to a PG showcase. PGSTAFF: appreciate all the nuances to stocking up player projections that come into play. Although challenging, over the course of many years, these intangibles that we refer to (body type, arm action, command, secondary pitch readiness, poise, ability to get batters out, etc) have coalesced with metrics (pitch velocity, spin rate, etc). Together they are better aids to project what a 16 year old...

I just think certain kids get the most out of certain situations or events and I would like to know more about your son. He does sound interesting based on your initial post. You can send me a private message as I doubt you want to discuss your son out here in the open.

Perhaps if you provide a little additional information than some folks can help in pointing you in the right direction. One of you posts has your son at 6-1 135. Perhaps what other pitches does he have? More importantly, what schools are agreeable, whether geographically, academically, etc.? The more information, the better you can then start putting together a target list. No idea about OK, but JUCO route still has lots of opportunity for 2017 grads.
