IMPORTANT FORMS AND INFORMATION

2016 Junior Showcase

The Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association will be holding the 7th Annual Junior Showcase for baseball players completing their junior baseball season. We will also be accepting approximately 30 sophomores. The showcase cap will remain at 150 players.

The date will be Sunday, July 31, 2016, hosted by Southeast Polk High School in Pleasant Hill, Iowa. The showcase will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude by 3:00 p.m.

No games will be played. All players will be timed in the 60 yard dash. Catchers will be timed on their throws to second. Outfielders will show their arm strength with throws from right field to third base and home plate. First basemen will field ground balls and display their arm strength to third base. Shortstops, second basemen, and third basemen will field ground balls at their respective positions and show their fielding ability and arm strength with a variety of throws to first base. They will also turn a couple of double plays. Pitchers will throw 15 pitches off the mound, showing their fastball, curve-ball, change up, and any other pitches. All position players will be given an opportunity to take 10 swings in the cage.  Players may only work out at one position.

Coaches are asked to nominate their 2017 graduates who may play college baseball. IF YOU ARE NOMINATING, PLEASE INFORM PLAYERS THAT THEY MAY BE SELECTED.  The online nomination form is available at the link under “Junior Showcase” at www.iowahsbca.net.

Coaches are asked to have their nominations submitted by June 30, 2016. Coaches are asked to please nominate ONLY those players they feel have the ability to play college baseball at some level. Only 150 players will be selected, so not all players will be invited to attend. If you have questions about the nomination process, please email Dave at: iowajuniorshowcase@gmail.com

Once a player is selected, he will be sent an acceptance form and a player information form to be signed and returned to Devin Schwiesow, along with a check for a position player of $50 and $75 if also pitching, made out to the IHSBCA. These forms will not go out until after July 7, 2016. If the forms and check arenot returned by July 25, 2016, the player may not be included in the showcase and another player may be invited. All proceeds from this event will go directly to the Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association.

The IHSBCA appreciates your efforts in supporting both the association and providing a positive experience for Iowa’s high school baseball players.
