"The girls out competing will have the opportunity to meet committed players from last year's showcases; this is going to be an exciting weekend where they will get to exhibit their softball skills in front of college recruiters that are really looking to complement their roster," added Pearson. "Last year alone more than 50 players were recruited from our showcases!"
