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 Combine Series to make choosing the right college as enjoyable as possible and offer a player everything they need at one affordable price (only $75). 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 Combines are open to any jr. high, high school and junior college aged players (unless noted). The MaxBat Combine 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.
Players who register for this event will automatically receive an online bio on the College Scouting Bureau website to help them with the recruiting process.
You are coming in to work out for every college at every level in the United States. The College Scouting Bureau will take the information on what you did that day and send it out by midnight on the day of the camp. One day at this event is equal to over 1000 college tryouts around the country.
After December 12th, 2016 the fee for this event is $100.00. This includes walk-ups.
We do not cancel events. In case of rain, you will be notified of an alternative date.
Detailed Camp Description
Who should attend a Combine?
Incoming Freshman & Sophomores - While college is still a few years away, this is an ideal time to attend a combine. You may be the best player on your team, but how do your skills compare to other teams' best players? Not only will a combine 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.
Junior College Players -
Junior College Players are encouraged to attend these events. The college coaches who work these events are all in need of mature players to come in and boost their rosters right away. Most players who play JUCO out of high school do it for the following reasons: They are trying to make a higher level of play. They try to fix the bad grades they had in high school that caused them to play at the JUCO level. They felt they needed to get bigger, stronger, faster before they made the jump to college. Showing up to these events will give them all the answers they need as far as their future in collegiate baseball.

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.
Note: If the event site has to change due to weather or field scheduling cancellations that are out of the hands of Team MaxBat that there are NO refunds unless the Cancellation Protection is purchased.
