HS Baseball Web Community -
Beginning this coming summer, Top 96 will run two-day, regionally-focused events in four locations across the country: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, & Los Angeles. All Top 96 events will be run on college campuses in the host regions and are designed for student-athletes who want to attend and play baseball at a college or university in that region. The mission is simple: deliver the best-in-class regional college showcases in the country.
You may be familiar with prior iterations of the Top 96 brand - for many years as "Top 96" and then as "Baseball America Clinics" - for which you can find reviews and forums elsewhere on this community board. In this new iteration, by partnering with companies like Rapsodo and others, we will focus on collecting and sharing cutting-edge player metrics and analytics so as to deliver real-time recruiting process insight to players and coaches alike. Our vision is a program specifically responsive to the evolving needs of college recruiters in the age of analytics.
What makes Top 96 different?
Best In-Region Exposure:
City and setting are key to finding the right college fit, and are often variables that student-athletes and families are able to zero in on before they know where one fits academically or athletically. The location of the schools you’re targeting – whether that’s in your backyard or on the other side of the country – matters, and now there’s a camp built to deliver your best look at a diverse set of schools, all close to your targeted city.
The format and structure of Top 96 – from the data-driven analytics to the full game play – offer student-athletes the most effective showcase experience to pursue their college goal in their intended city.
Maximum Efficiency in Your Recruiting:
At Top 96, “in region colleges” means colleges that are in your target geographic region. By focusing solely on these regional programs, Top 96 delivers the balance of efficient exposure to the city and schools that you’re targeting, while also a critical volume and variety of schools to add value and efficiency in your recruiting process. Your recruiting resources are valuable, and Top 96 allows you to maximize your exposure to exactly the college programs on your list.
Data-Driven FIVE TOOL Exposure & Advanced Analytics:
By delivering the in-depth, advanced data and analytics that the top college programs use, Top 96 gives student-athletes the path to future development, and college coaches everything they need to recruit you. The insight from these analytics let coaches see the player you are now and project you to the athlete you will be in their program.
