2015 RECAP

Twenty-five Division One Coaches and Professional Scouts gathered at John Paul II High School in Plano, TX on the weekend December 4-6, 2015 to coach, evaluate, teach and connect with 68 Baseball players.  Players from the states of Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas were encouraged to "Play the Game" and not simply focus on their individual accomplishments and measurements.  

Beautiful weather, intense competition and great food filled the weekend.  Friends were discovered, evaluations calculated, and bodies tired as the quality of play improved each day and night of the Texas Pro Showcase.  The weekend culminated on Sunday with Baseball Chapel led by Brandon Agamennone and Matt Anderson along with a Pro Scouting workout and subsequent signing of Gabe Noyalis from PA who was a former camp attender of Matt Anderson's.  

The talent pool for the first Texas Pro Showcase was unbelievable with 40 different hitters and 19 different pitcher receiving at least 1 evaluation believing that they could play Division One baseball.  There were many 2017 and 2018 players who took their first steps toward college baseball on the weekend.
In addition to the 25 Camp staff coaches/scouts, the following coaches/scouts attended the event looking for players:
  • Baltimore Orioles, San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox and the Pittsburgh Pirates all had professional scouts in attendance.
  • Fort Scott Community College, Baton Rouge Community College and Navorro College had coaches representing the Junior College Ranks.
***** Fort Scott Community College signed Ben McConnell as a result of the Texas Pro Showcase weekend.  ******

Great Sunday morning at Baseball Chapel where Brandon Agamennone and Matt Anderson proclaimed the Gospel of Christ crucified.  Much thanks to the players and coaches that came out early!
The weekend closed with a special moment when Gabe Noyalis of Williamsport, PA agreed with Matt Anderson of the Toronto Blue Jays to contract terms to start his professional career.  Gabe had attended Matt Anderson's baseball camp in 2009, played college baseball in PA and came to Texas in hopes of signing a professional contract.  Gabe's hard work paid off following a great workout.  Most definitely a special way to end a special baseball weekend!
