Having just completed its 17th successful year, SelectFest Baseball has emerged as the top-rated, invitation-only High School Baseball Showcase in the Northeast, attracting college coaches and professional scouts from the country's most prestigious conferences and organizations. Our rosters regularly include the top prospects from all areas along the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions. We are proud of the fact that to date, nearly 1100 SelectFest alumni have gone on to play at the collegiate level, and about 15 per year are drafted to play professional baseball. In 2006 alone, approximately 40 players signed with colleges that compete in either the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), the South Eastern Conference (SEC), or the Big East Conference. In no uncertain terms, SelectFest Baseball has had a significant impact on how high school baseball recruiting takes place in the northeast region. Accepting an invitation to SelectFest could be the most important decision a player makes as a college baseball recruit.
From over 650 applications annually, SelectFest invites the Top 160 players to participate in two separate events over threedays in front of over 150 college coaches and professional scouts. As part of the Skills Day event players are put through a traditional pro skills workout, which includes running the 60-yard dash using a laser-timing device, throwing from their position, and batting practice; and pitchers throw 5-7 pitches on the radar gun while catchers throw to second base. Our unique format allows the evaluation and tracking of all players individually as no two players perform simultaneously on Skills Day (except for the speed timing). For the two day Game Days event, players participate in official games. Over both events, college coaches and pro scouts evaluate both a player's individual physical skills and ability to perform competitively.
