The 3rd Annual RBI-U College Instructional Showcase brings premier college coaches from various D1, D2, Junior College & NAIA programs in our region to RBI Tri-Cities. It is truly a one-of-a-kind event where players can work directly with and get to know college coaches from all over the region. This year's staff includes coaches from the University of Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Clemson, ETSU, Appalachian State, Wofford, USC-Upstate, Walters State, Columbia State, Tusculum, Carson-Newman, Mars Hill, Montreat, Milligan and Truett McConnell. Coaches will instruct players on their hitting with a chance to evaluate and get to know all players in attendance.
Players in attendance will have a great opportunity to learn from these coaches, showcase their ability and make a personal impression on the coaches in attendance. Several players from last year's RBI-U attendees have since received offers and committed to play collegiate baseball.
The Q&A session and recruiting advice from all college coaches in attendance will be from 2:30-3pm.
On Thursday, November 8th we will have an optional on-field portion at 6pm. At this session, players will run the 60 yard dash, catchers will throw down to 2nd base, and infielders/outfielders will throw from their positions for velocity checks. All times and velocities will be turned into the college coaches in attendance prior to Saturday's event. This on-field testing will be done at ETSU's Thomas Stadium. All 60's and throwing stations are optional and recommended for players who are in shape to go full speed.
Two-way players who want to showcase at both the Hitters & Pitchers sessions can register for both sessions for $195.
Each player will be provided with an RBI-U jersey to wear with number on the back for easy identification. Space is limited to the first 50 players to sign up.
