MLB 14U Showcase Trials 2018

 

Baseball Australia in conjunction with Major League Baseball (MLB) and State Associations are excited to announce the MLB Australian Showcase, which will provide opportunities for up and coming baseball players to display their talent.

The inclusion of the MLB Australian Showcase in Australia is part of a continued effort from MLB to help grow the game in Australia, and will feature opportunities for athletes to showcase their talents in six major Australian capital cities.

The aim of the MLB Australian Showcase is for MLB and Baseball Australia to identify players with the best baseball tools across the country. Both baseball and non-baseball players are invited to attend, with no previous baseball experience necessary.

Several of our top male and female baseballers are dual sport athletes, and this showcase is an opportunity for athletes in different sports try their hand at baseball.

Baseball Australia will be working with State Associations and professional scouts to conduct showcase events across the country, with every player attending receiving an MLB t-shirt.

Participants must be turning 13 or 14 in 2018 with a birth year of 2004 or 2005.
