Five Tool Showcases is excited about our new individual showcase event for all seasons. This unique format allows players to exhibit their skills and abilities in a game-speed format.
Two day events
Day 1 will consist of a College Style workout with players participating in 60-yard dash, Infield/Outfield Velocity, Batting Practice with bat exit speed. Testing results will be available to the players to compare by position and by graduating year. The results will also be sent to all of the Universities and Professional Organizations that support Five Tool Showcases.
Day 2 will have games played in "8-on-8" style where the ninth "player" is a pitching machine or live Batting Practice pitcher. This leads to the fast-paced environment with plenty of swings and plenty of reps in the field. Players will be evaluated in all five tools of baseball and given feedback regarding their skill sets and individual performances during the event.
As in all Five Tool events, the staff will be active in reporting outstanding performance on Twitter and on the Five Tool website.
One day event
8 on 8 baseball will return on a date TBD. This one-day event is designed to provide repetitions at game speed. This event will be the week of the Five Tool Show in order to prepare players for the games ahead. It will include the 60-yard dash, pop times, and IF/OF velocities. There will be a second session on this day which consists of an 8 on 8 scrimmage for two hours.
