V Tool 2016 Internship

Create: 01/31/2016 - 23:16

V Tool Showcases was established in January of 2013. The foundation was a joint effort between college coaches and select clubs to establish events that provide quality competition at quality venues. The goal is to provide events that allow the players to showcase their abilities and to do so in a manner that is friendly to the college recruiters and professional baseball scouts while allowing clubs to maintain fiscal responsibility to their members. Our goal is to host local teams seeking exposure for their players while accommodating out of town clubs in a manner that minimizes travel and the expense associated with select baseball. The mix of local and regional clubs provides great competition in a central location that is convenient for college recruiters and professional scouts in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas and the Midwest.
