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.
