Technical Director & former WBC Manager -Mauro Mazzotti

Our annual College Showcase is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity geared towards talented international players from Europe, Australia, the Caribbean, South America, and Asia interested in playing college baseball in 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 with over 70 players receiving Scholarship offers since 2013 and also helping some attain MLB contracts.

From Prague to Arizona and ending up in Missouri. International Stars...definitely helped me out getting to where I am right now.

Executive Director & MLB International Scout -Justin "Boomer" Prinstein

Led by our dedicated staff of MLB Scouts and experienced Professional Coaches, Mauro Mazzotti (former World Baseball Classic Manager for Spain and longtime MLB Scout, currently GM of San Marino), Justin "Boomer" Prinstein (former NCAA D1 and pro pitcher, current MLB International Crosschecker), Alex Mansfield (former college/pro player & Hungarian National Team Assistant), Conrad Orman (former pro pitcher for Baltimore Orioles and Director of CEO 58 Aruba), and Layton White (former college/pro pitcher, current Program Director for ISB Detroit Academy), players will receive individualized professional instruction/evaluation, a chance to showcase their skills in front of college coaches from all divisions and levels (NCAA D1, D2, D3, NAIA, JC) across the country, and have access to our vast network of college connections, comprised of hundreds of U.S. college baseball programs.

Participants 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 and talk to coaches, attend an American professional baseball game, and most importantly have the platform to transform your life through baseball!

I personally received an offer right after pitching just 2 innings in the first game. Real American dream here.
