Event date: October 6-7, 2012
Rock Valley College will be hosting a Baseball Prospect Showcase on Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7, 2012 at RVC Field on the college's main campus (3301 North Mulford Road, Rockford, IL).
The cost is just $50. This is not a two-day camp so interested players should choose which day to attend. This is a showcase only. There is no instruction promised to players, which 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 2013-2016.
There will be a pro-style workout; similar to those used at most MLB tryouts. Coaches from all divisions (NCAA Divisions I, II, III; NAIA, NJCAA) as well as MLB scouts will be present. Coaches from the following colleges are currently scheduled to attend: University of Illinois, Illinois State University, Quincy University, MacMurray College, Spalding University, and Rock Valley College.
