June  26-27 St Petersburg Florida sign up at or call 813-926-7622

The post draft showcase of 2019 showcase will be held June 26-27 at the Walter Fuller Complex in Saint Petersburg, Florida located at 7901 30th Ave North, Saint Petersburg, Fl 33710. Don’t delay as last year’s camp was sold out weeks before.
” We have players from our  2018 showcase’s  doing great things already in pro ball. They just needed a chance to be seen.   We have had players go on to have All Star minor league seasons each year with many making Baseball America’s Top Indy Prospect list….the DBacks signed Louisiana Lafayette’s  Joe Robbins who we got a job for last year at the June St Petersburg Camp.  It’s a way for the overlooked player in the draft to get a contract on the spot and start their pro career immediately”, said IPS  founder, Nick Belmonte. “We can’t wait to get back there and help these kids that don’t get drafted.  We traditionally get deserving players from this showcase on one of the many Indy Leagues that are already in season, including Brandon Cummins who came to our Indy Pro Showcase last year in California got a job playing in the Cub’s organization”. Just below on this page are just some of the players we got jobs for  in the last few weeks that are thriving already in pro ball. Just like you, they just needed a chance. The showcase cost is $250 till through June 25th. Pro Scouts from the major league organizations such as the Rays, DBacks, Cardinals, and Cubs  will be in attendance. Limited space for this camp so sign up early.

Walter Fuller Baseball Complex 7901 30th Ave North, st Petersburg, Fl 33710

    1. It’s a winter league. You pay a lot of money, they promise scouts will be there, some guys get signed, most get released during spring training… honestly the same thing that happens everywhere.


    1. Those vary with different league rules. Frontier is 27. The United Shore has an age limit (I think…) and everyone else really doesn’t. The Pecos claims to have one, but older players still play in the league if approved.


  1. Hi Ms. Thompson I’m a ball player with various scholarships to play college baseball at the moment. I’m 23 years old though and my dream is to play in Japan. Will any independent Japanese Baseball League teams be hosting tryouts in America? I’m from Florida so if they were in the south that would be preferable. I’m really just trying to find the right scouting event to attend.


  2. There is a Post-Draft tryout for the Frontier League, being hosted by the Evansville Otters and Joliet Slammers on Monday, June 17th in Westfield, IN. An Arizona Diamondbacks rep will also be in attendance. Email for tryout flyer is attached below.
