Team MaxBat Northern Indiana/Michigan Showcase
Covelski Stadium -South Bend, Indiana
Ages: 14-18 | Camp Times: 9:00am
The recruiting process can be a very confusing time for a high school baseball player and his family. Decisions about which showcases to attend, what recruiting services to use, and how much money to budget for it all can be very frustrating to make.
Team MaxBat created the MaxBat 5-Tool Showcase Series to make choosing the right college as enjoyable as possible and offer a player everything they need at one affordable price (only $125). We believe that every player deserves a shot to play at the next level and shouldn't have to waste money that can go towards that education.
All Showcases are open to any jr. high, high school aged players (unless noted). The MaxBat 5-Tool Showcase Series events are designed to be an experience in themselves. It is our experience that athletes perform at their best when they play at top flight venues.
Don't hesitate to sign up today because
each event is limited to only 100 players!
Detailed Camp Description
Who should attend a Showcase?
Junior High - You are still young but if handled the right way the fire of passion for the love of baseball can be re-ignited by attending these events. The travel, friends, and experience is something you will always remember.
Incoming Sophomores - While college is still 3 years away, this is an ideal time to attend a showcase. You may be the best player on your team, but how do your skills compare to other teams' best players? Not only will a showcase help get you on the "recruiting radar", but more importantly, it will let you know what improvements college coaches feel you need to make and give you extra time to develop those skills.
Incoming Juniors - In the eyes of many, this is your big year! Most upper level collegiate coaches do the majority of their recruiting/scholarship offering following a player's junior season. They may leave a few spots available for junior college players or unforeseen seniors, but most want to have their rosters set a full year in advance. This offseason could be the most important of all for getting exposure and finding out what fixes you need to make.
Incoming Seniors - Time is running out! Now's the time to let college coaches see how your game has developed and why you'd be a good fit for their program.

What if I have to cancel a camp?
We do not offer refunds on canceled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection". We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date . Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
