The inaugural Gulf Coast Showcase event will be held at the Gulfport Sportsplex Turf Field on October 2nd & 3rd, 2021. The purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity for area girls softball teams to compete locally and be seen by college coaches. Every year, parents spend lots of money traveling to compete in showcase events. Competing locally saves money and be seen by college coaches in the local area.
The showcase format will be a straight five games where teams will be able to bat their lineup. The 80 minute time limit will help teams get through the lineup multiple times. The showcase is open to 14u, 16u and 18u (High School) age divisions. The cost of the event is $250 entry fee plus pay-at-the-plate for umpires. Entry fee can be paid online or in-person at the event. USA Softball sanctioning is waived for this event but proof-of-insurance is required. Hosts for this event are the Crossfire and Overdrive Softball Clubs. From more information, contact Chad Hancock at 228-860-6559 or Tom Stanley at 228-365-2301.
There are still tons of details to be worked out. We’re in contact with area coaches to gain their attendance. Pre-registering for the event will aid in getting their participation. We have some other things in the works that will be announced as plans are finalized.
