Coronavirus update! 2020 events postponed to later date

It is our responsibility to provide a safe and quality environment for our participants as they endeavor to play professional baseball in 2020. Based on CDC recommendations, we have postponed the 2020 pro tryout mini-camps. We will still be hosting these events in 2020.

We are not cancelling the events but instead we are working closely with the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and Major League Baseball to select a date that coincides properly with the start of their respective 2020 professional seasons.

We will be selecting an appropriate date for each event as soon as the ALPB and MLB have made public decisions on their new start dates. As of now there is much speculation regarding Major League Baseball but until they issue their official statement, we cannot announce a new date.

If you have registered already for one of these events and have NOT been getting our frequent emails, including event itineraries, please send and email to so we can put your CORRECT email on your registration form.

We know that this is a tremendous opportunity for you as a player to further your professional baseball career. We understand the commitment it takes to participate in an event like this and what it means to each player hoping to play professionally in 2020. This is why we will not be cancelling the event but instead coming up with a plan that gives you unprecedented access to professional managers and an unparalleled opportunity to secure a professional baseball playing contract for the 2020 season.

For those of you displaced by the cancellation of the 2020 college baseball season, we are increasing the participation limit for each event and are opening a live waiting list for players to request access to attend. Pitchers are still able to sign up currently through the online portal, but position players must request access through the waiting list.

ABCA Nashville Recap

The 2020 American Baseball Coaches Association convention made its stop in Nashville, TN and Prospect Dugout was there creating content, networking, and collaborating!

The sold out event was attended by over 7,000 baseball coaches from across the country, not to mention many former players, professional coaches, fans, and amateur players and their parents. Hundreds of brands featuring the latest products and training tools lined the convention’s trade show exhibit as visitors line the walkway checking out what each booth has to offer.

From analytical products like Blast Motion to Stance Check hitter’s glasses that train both eyes to look at the pitcher, the ABCA showcased a wide variety of products and services during the 3-day trade show.

A few major standouts from the ABCA trade show were the massive spaces rented by Rapsodo, HitTrax, and Home Run Zone Simulator which allowed spectators to take full range batting practice while testing out each brand’s products.

The ABCA offers a schedule of lectures, instructional sessions, and other presentations by various personalities and professionals in the game of baseball both at the collegiate and professional levels. Our time at the convention was spent solely at the trade show as we mingled through the booths greeting brands we’ve previously worked with while meeting new ones as we head into 2020.

Check out this full list of brands we visited in Nashville:

Looking forward to what 2020 has to offer!! Excited to be working with such top quality brands and create great relationships with those representing the companies.

Play Pro Baseball in 2020!

In 2019 over 40 players from our March pro tryout went on to play professionally, including two at the Triple-A Level.

Prospect Dugout is back with the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball for 2020 professional baseball opportunities.

Entering its 21st season, the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB) offers an open classification of play, the highest level of professional baseball other than Major League Baseball. Atlantic League players are highly experienced professionals, having progressed through professional baseball developmental levels (A, AA, AAA). More than 40% of Atlantic League players have major league service time. Atlantic League clubs pay players to win baseball games, not apprentice in baseball’s developmental levels.

Over 900 of the league’s players have signed contracts with big league organizations and over 100 players have been transferred to Major League Baseball. The league averages more than 50 player contract sales to MLB organizations each year. Over 70 former Atlantic League players and coaches are managers or coaches in MLB organizations.

2020 features TWO events:

March 30 – April 2 in Orlando, Florida and April 6 – April 9 in Arizona.

Thanks to our partnership with the Atlantic League, we are able to guarantee that at least 16 players will be offered ALPB contracts from our events.

How the tryouts work

A 4-day Mini-Camp will allow players to audition their skills in front of ALPB managers for a chance to earn a playing contract for the 2020 season.

Each day will consist of on-field batting practice, extended infield/outfield, and a 10-inning game.

With a limit of only 184 spots in each location, players will have to act fast.
