By Diego Solares

This Sunday, Jan. 31, the PBR Illinois team is hosting the Future Prospects Showcase & Educational Camp at Pro Player Academy in McHenry, Ill. This is a sold-out event for players in grad classes 2025 and 2026 designed to be a learning experience that, for most participants, will be their first showcase event – an initial step toward achieving a player’s baseball goals.

For a closer look at the showcase details and the technologies we'll have on-site to assist our in-person evaluation for all in attendance, click here. For a complete look at those registered to attend this event, view the most up-to-date version of the roster by clicking here.


Because of the high number of prospects set to attend Sunday's event, it is imperative that you read our adjusted showcase itinerary below, which will allow our staff to swiftly and efficiently educate and evaluate the players set to attend.

We also ask that you please complete this waiver, if you have not done so already. We previously provided check-in information in an email, distributed earlier in the week.

Additionally, in an effort to continue and develop contactless check-in strategies, upon arrival, players will scan a QR Code with their smart phone camera that will lead them to a Google Form. On that Form, players will enter their name (matching the spelling on their PBR profile) and hit submit. Upon submission, players will be prompted to click a link that will direct them to their jersey color and number, located next to their registered name.


Due to state guidelines, and the facility's requirements, there will be a limit to the number of people inside the facility at one time. This showcase will operate in segmented groups, by position, under the format as follows: (Players registered for multiple sessions will need to leave the facility after completing their first session and arrive at the designated check-in time of their next session; parents will not be allowed inside of the facility.)
