Players Showcase

This is a high exposure event attended by a multitude of college and professional scouts. This event sells out every year, last year we were sold out by June 1st, so we recommend registering as soon as possible. Since its inception in 2005, the Prep Baseball Report has evolved into one of the country’s biggest and most respected independent scouting services, with a singular focus of providing comprehensive coverage in every state. More than 450 colleges and pro scouts subscribe to the Prep Baseball Report services.
All players that participate in the Buckeye Elite Showcase will receive an online profile with their verified statistics, scouting report, picture and video. Additionally, all subsequent stories written about a prospect will be linked to the player’s profile, ultimately creating a one-stop shop for recruiters.

Jul 11, 2016 09:55 AMThis year’s event was our largest ever with 328 teams, 58 fields and 804 games. It was monumental that we got all of the games in with championship winners in all age brackets. We would like to thank the players, coaches, schools, umpires, facility managers, parents, hotels, hotel coordinators and the Buckeye Elite staff, without your support it would have never happened. To the teams still playing, good luck for the rest of your season and for the teams finished for the season, have a great summer. We hope to see you all next year! Thank you all - Jeff Dutiel, Mark Gessner, Chad Dutiel and Brandon Gessner.
