Here’s a preview video including footage from our 2015 pre-showcase workout.

Here’s a video look at an individual pitcher’s day at our 2015 showcase. It takes you from sign-in, to stretching, to loosening up, playing long toss on flat ground, throwing a warm-up bullpen, to throwing off the mound in front of college recruiters and professional scouts.

Here are some comments from past events –

Mike G – father of Anthony – RHP, class of 2017, St. Mary’s High School
“We would like to thank you for the opportunity that Anthony was given to participate in the catcher/pitcher showcase this past Saturday. It was extremely organized and no question well worth its weight in gold.”

Joseph C – father Joe – RHP, class of 2015 Pine Bush High School
“I just wanted to send my compliments for a such a wonderful showcase you put on. I’ve attended so many of these events and yours was the best by far. I plan on telling anyone who is interested in attending any baseball showcases that they should contact PBI before they do anything else.”

Tom S – father of Thomas – RHP pitcher, class of 2014 Paramus Catholic High School
“I wanted to thank you and PBI for the great pitching/catching showcase my son and I attended at your facility last weekend. We have spent a small fortune this year on camps, travel baseball (up and down the East Coast) and countless “clinics” all over the North East for my son, Tom to showcase his pitching ability. (After your showcase) we have received offers from 3 Division 1 schools, 2 Division 2’s and have now scheduled official visits to 4 more D1’s and our phone has been busy since we left PBI last Saturday. And we didn’t have to spend a fortune booking flights, hotel rooms and car rentals…. You are less than 20 minutes from our home. Thank you again for hosting a top-notch event.”

David V. – father of David – RHP and Catcher, class of 2014 Burlington Township High School
“Excellent showcase this past weekend. I was definitely impressed at the quality time each kid got to showcase their stuff in front of the coaches in attendance and was as equally impressed at the turnout of coaches for the event.”

Chris C. – father of Joe – RHP, class of 2014 DePaul Catholic High School
“My son Joe attended your pitcher/catcher showcase today and I have to say it was tremendously well run. We have been to showcase tournaments and many college prospect camps and your event was the best of them all. The turnout was very impressive.”

Cesar Presbott – New York Yankees scout
“Great job, I really enjoyed, a lot of good kids.”
