Rock Valley College is a community college located in Rockford, IL. The showcase will be held at RVC Field on the college campus on Saturday, October 6 and Sunday October 7, 2012. The cost is $50.
Players choose which day to attend. This is not a two day camp. This is a showcase only, there is no instruction promised to players. That is why the cost is kept very low compared to other events around the Midwest.
The mission of having this event is to get student-athletes exposed to collegiate coaches and to have prospective student-athletes on the Rock Valley College campus. The event is open to all high school aged players from the classes of 2012-2015. There will be a pro-style workout, the same that is used at most MLB tryouts. Coaches from all divisions (NCAA 1,2,3; NAIA, NJCAA) as well as MLB scouts will be present. A list of committed coaches will be updated as the showcase draws near.
