Our annual College Showcase is an amazing opportunity geared towards talented international players from Europe, Australia, the Caribbean, South America, and Asia interested in playing college baseball in the U.S. The International Stars College Showcase has already placed numerous international players in college programs around the U.S. We are the preeminent organization, that focuses exclusively on baseball, in placing international players at U.S. colleges. No other organization can match our record of success.
Led by long-time MLB Scouts and Professional Coaches, including former Spain World Baseball Classic Manager Mauro Mazzotti, you will receive individualized professional instruction, evaluation, a chance to showcase your skills in front of college coaches from all divisions and levels (NCAA D1, D2, D3, NAIA, JC) across the country, and you will have access to our vast network of college connections, comprised of hundreds of U.S. college baseball programs.
You will play games vs. top U.S. Junior College programs, take campus tours, learn about the college eligibility process and how to apply to schools from former NCAA Division 1 pitcher Justin Prinstein, attend an American professional baseball game, and have a chance to represent your country as an International Star playing in the U.S.
Talented international players, ages 16-21, wishing to play college baseball.

The International Stars College Showcase helped me with my dream in a different way than I expected… It gave me the chance to showcase myself in front of tons of scouts which enabled me to choose different colleges across the United States.

“I am glad I have been a part of the Boomer Baseball International community. Playing for International Stars at the Prague baseball week in 2014 with the guys from all over the world was a great experience! Moreover, BBI was a key step in my life because it helped me to get to college in the USA. BBI gave me the opportunity to show myself at the college showcase in front of numerous college coaches from different parts of the states. Currently, I play in Texas for the Ranger Junior College in one of the strongest conference in the nation.”
