Future stars of the college and professional diamond are in the local area this week to showcase their talent in front of MLB and college scouts.
Choccolocco Park in Oxford is hosting the East Coast Pro Showcase event this week (June 19-21). There are over 100 of the top high school baseball players in the region on hand to play and run drills. Rising seniors who make up the class of 2019, as well as the classes of 2020 and 2021 are all invited by Major League Scouts to get top level evaluation.
There are players who already have committed to some of the top programs in the nation including Florida, Mississippi State, Auburn, Ole Miss, LSU and Alabama. The event is also great for the city of Oxford.
