Georgia Dugout Club to host Top 100 Showcase

VALDOSTA — The Georgia Dugout Club (State’s Baseball Coaches’ Association) is set to once again host the Georgia Underclassman Top 100 Showcase throughout Georgia during the month of June. The showcase will make its way to Valdosta on June 9 to be held at Valdosta State University from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m.

The Top 100 Showcase is a great event for rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors looking to start the recruiting process and to be seen by college coaches and pro scouts.

One of the most popular high school baseball showcase events in the country, the underclassmen event attracts over 100 college and pro scouts on an annual basis. Since 2003, the Georgia Underclassman has had hundreds of high school 10th, 11th and 12th graders participate before going on to play college or pro baseball.

The most notable Top 100 Alumni includes 2008 No. 1 overall draft pick Timothy Beckham (Griffin HS), 2011 National League MVP Buster Posey (Lee County HS.) and the 2013 No. 5 overall draft pick Clint Frazier (Loganville High School) and Austin Meadows, the No. 9 draft pick (Grayson High School).

The Georgia Underclassman Scout Committee, made up of pro scouts and college coaches, travel the state to evaluate players participating in a pro-style workout at different regional sites. From the 12 regional sites, 100 upcoming seniors along with 60 upcoming juniors and sophomores will be chosen to participate in a final event at Georgia Gwinnett College in late June.

All players that attend a regional site are graded out by the Scout Committee and their data is posted on the player’s individual player profile. The player profiles store valuable information including contact information, academic information/transcript, highlight video and season by season statistics that each player can then e-mail out to college coaches around the state with the Georgia Underclassman Recruiting System.

    Phillip Johnson remembers when he had a “Wizard of Oz” moment.
    The North Carolina native moved to Georgia when he was 26 and Johnson, now Lanier County’s second-year head coach, recalls a 7-on-7 tournament leading to the realization that he wasn’t in Kansas — or in his case, North Carolina — anymore.

  • Braves trio all business at inductions

    The Braves seemed almost businesslike in their approach -- something you might expect from a trio that won so consistently.
    Managers Joe Torre and Tony La Russa also remained calm and collected throughout their addresses.
    Frank Thomas took care of the emotional side, his voice breaking and his eyes moist during a heartfelt speech Sunday at the Clark Sports Center.
