The 19th annual Hitters Baseball Midwest Showcase takes place on August 5 and 6 at Nash Park in Kenosha this summer. The showcase is the premier summertime exposure event in Wisconsin.
The showcase is open to players in the classes of 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024. It will be attended by several colleges and universities, including staff from Louisville, Illinois, Creighton, Michigan, Purdue, St. Louis, UW-Milwaukee and Bradley, among others. In total, there will be over 20 colleges in attendance.
Players will participate in pro-style workouts on the first day of the camp. They’ll run a 60-yard dash, do defensive drills for their respective positions, and play batting practice games. All of these drills will be an opportunity to show coaches at the next level what you can do. Additionally, players will receive instruction from college coaches in the morning.
The second day of the showcase will consist entirely of live-action games. This will give players the opportunity to put it all together in real game situations and further demonstrate what they can do in front of the college attendees. It’s a golden opportunity for players to be guaranteed to be seen.
Getting exposure at the end of the summer is a great way to put your name on the map for the next season and bring some momentum into the offseason.
Previous participants in the showcase have gone on to do great things. There have been several Hitters alumni selected straight out of high school in the MLB Draft lately, including Gavin Lux (2016 first round), Ben Rortvedt (2016 second round), and Ryan Hoerter (2017 40th round). Many have been selected out of college as well, including Milwaukee’s 2016 first round pick Corey Ray.
It costs $300 to attend the camp. All campers will receive a t-shirt for attending. For further information and to register, click here.
