This event is open to travel, all-star, and rec baseball players, and is designed to provide an opportunity for players to demonstrate their skills and receive an objective evaluation as they warm up for the Spring Season.

Rec and All-Star players: This is a great chance to get ready for skills day for the spring season at your park!

Travel players: Have fun in a great environment with your peers! If you’re looking for a team, we’ll share your information and performance summary with coaches who are looking to fill a roster spot!

All players will receive a performance summary and evaluation of their skillset based on their performance at the event.


Our evaluators have over 100 combined years of experience coaching and scouting at all levels of baseball, from youth to college and professional leagues.  Their opinions and evaluations will be unbiased and will reflect their expertise in the game.

Within a week after the event, players and their families, as well as coaches, will receive a detailed breakdown of the player's performance and how his or her results compare to their peers.  The performance summary will include the player’s velocities for throwing and hitting, their sprint times, and their ratings for the various activities.

What’s in it for the players:

  • Opportunity to prep for the spring baseball season and showcase their skills and athleticism in front of multiple coaches
  • Gain an assessment of their development at a point in time that can be used as a reference or baseline for future growth
  • Receive a full and unbiased evaluation from youth and professional baseball experts on these areas:
    • Throwing: arm strength and accuracy
    • Fielding: infield and outfield plays (and catching for players who catch)
    • Pitching: accuracy and velocity
    • Hitting: bat speed and offensive skill
    • Athleticism: sprint speed

What’s in it for the parents:

  • If you’re looking for a team, save time and money from not having to attend multiple tryouts or team workouts
  • Help your player prepare for the spring baseball season
  • Players will be evaluated fairly by experts in the game
  • Access to their player’s evaluation and performance data, including where he or she falls in the spectrum of their peers, including the following:

      • Throwing
      • Pitching
      • Hitting
      • Catching (catchers only)
  • Coaches from multiple local travel teams will be in attendance meaning your player will gain significant exposure from just one workout
    • Many of our 2017 Showcase Series attendees reported that they received inquiries or offers from teams as a result of the player’s performance.
    • In many cases the parents stated they would not have otherwise known about or tried out for the teams who contacted them.

  • Be able to speak to parents and communicate the benefits of their programs
  • Step back and observe players without having to worry about the administrative and operational aspects of hosting your own tryout

frequently asked questions

Is this a tryout for a Training Legends baseball team?

This is an opportunity for players to prepare for the spring baseball season demonstrate and be evaluated on their skills, and gain exposure to coaches of local teams.

How long will the event last?

The event will have two distinct segments for players:

  • Warm-Ups
  • Skills Evaluations in Fielding, Hitting, Pitching, and Speed

Depending on the number of players, the event could last 3-4 hours. 

What should my player bring?

  • Any and all baseball equipment as if attending a typical team practice, along with water or a sports drink.
  • Players should wear baseball pants and turf shoes or sneakers.
  • If a player intends to be evaluated as a catcher, he should bring catcher’s equipment

Who will be evaluating the players?

Experts from the Training Legends staff as well as coaches from teams in the player’s age group.

What teams will be in attendance looking for players?

  • We will provide updates on this page as teams sign up to attend
  • The list is subject to change; many coaches at our 2017 event were walk-ups.

Am I guaranteed to receive an offer to join a team?

Coaches will be in attendance, but are under no obligation to offer roster spots to the players. Coaches will receive the performance data and can use that along with their own observations to determine whether a particular player will be a potential fit for their team.

Will you be sharing my player’s personal info?

  • If a coach is interested in your player, you will receive a request from him via email with his contact info, at which point you can decide whether to pursue the opportunity.
  • All data collected will be used solely for the purposes of player evaluation; information will not be sold under any circumstances.
  • If a coach specifically requests a phone number for a family, we will ask your permission to share it with the coach.

Could the event be cancelled?

If the event is cancelled due to weather, families will have the option to receive a refund or a credit towards registration for our Showcase Series Summer Sessions.

What system is being used to record and track player performance data?

We will be using EvalGenius. This will allow our evaluators to record their assessments using their mobile devices and the EvalGenius App.  This cloud-based solution will greatly reduce the time needed to compile and summarize the event data.

Parents will receive a unique code that will allow them to retrieve their player’s assessment results, make updates to their player’s contact info, or flip a flag to add or remove their player from the coaches’ results view.

  • To see how this works for individual player evaluation results, enter the code below at this page: Player Performance Details
    • Sample Code: CB00B2445D274B048DD45D04EF8A2462 

Coaches will receive a separate unique code that will allow them to retrieve the summarized and individual results from the event, and give them the ability to submit their contact info to parents if there is a player they would like to pursue.

  • To see how this works for player evaluation results for a group, enter the code below at this page: Tryout Eval Details Report
    • Sample Code: EGX1WTCCXM

Coaches will not see any personal information for players/parents unless the parents elect to share their information when they register.

Where will I find the results from the Showcase Series?



Codes will be provided for use with these pages.

My player already is on a team for the year; should I attend?

  • This is an opportunity to receive a full assessment and the accompanying data, which can be used as benchmark for the player’s growth and development.
  • Our registration form includes the option to suppress your player’s evaluation data; this way coaches will only be contacting players who are looking to join a team.
  • We find that youth athletes cherish this as a fun experience share the field with players from teams they may see throughout the season. Players love to compete, and this is an opportunity to do so with the pressure of winning or losing a game.

What is the cost for coaches to attend and access the results of the showcase?
