I95 Metro Baseball Is Proud To Announce Our Pre-Season President’s Day Combine.​

1. WHAT TIME WILL THE COMBINE BE?
We will have either one or two sessions. This will be decided in early February. The combine will not start before 8:30AM and not end past 4:00PM.

2: WILL ANY COLLEGES BE IN ATTENDANCE AT I-95 METRO BASEBALL 5 TOOL PRESEASON COMBINE?
No. This event is set up in a different format FOR the coaches. Our focus will be on getting the players an incredible recruiting video, verified metrics and written evaluation. We will then be sending all individual player information to our database of 125 college programs. Our first three combines have been a huge success with over 90 players committing from our events and 21,000 player views.

3: WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PERSONAL RECRUITING VIDEO, VERIFIED METRICS & DATA & WRITTEN EVALUATION? WILL PLAYERS GET TO KEEP THEIR INFORMATION?
All players will receive their personal recruiting video, verified metrics, profile, report & data by March 21.

In addition ALL players & parents will be able to share this information with anyone they see fit with their OWN personal page.

4: HOW MANY PLAYERS WILL BE ACCEPTED TO THE I95 5 TOOL METRIC COMBINE?
95 total players and no more than 20 players at one position.

5: DO PLAYERS TRAVEL TO YOUR EVENT? WILL YOU HOLD EVENTS IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY?
YES, we have had players from all 50 states and four countries attend our events over the last several years. Our events are located in the “hub” of both the most college baseball programs (within 180 mile radius) and the highest concentration of academic colleges (within 180 mile radius). For those reasons, an event this magnitude with this list of schools will ONLY be held in this region. Whether it is the IVY league schools or Vanderbilt, Duke, Penn St., Tennessee, Wake Forest, UVA, Florida St., Notre Dame, Texas, Coastal Carolina and many others, this is the most convenient location and that is why it is a destination for players from all over the country. Last year we had 39 players from California, 45 from Florida and 31 from Texas.

6: DO YOUR EVENTS SELL OUT?
Yes, we are proud to say our last 18 events have sold out! Thank you to all our players, parents & coaches.

Our I95 Metro Baseball Combine will have one or two shifts. Combine will NOT start before 8AM and not end past 5PM. Your time will be posted 72 hours prior to the event. No requests. We break our “session times” by positions and graduation classes. Each session will be between 3.5-4.5 hours.

8: WILL THERE BE GAMES PLAYED AT THE I95 5 TOOL METRIC COMBINE?
No. This is about individual players getting to perform their skills and put their skills on film. We will have live BP on the field. We will have extended bullpens and many metrics for the boys to perform throughout the day along with multiple camera angles.

9: WHAT IF MY SON IS A PITCHER ONLY?
Pitchers are far and away the most sought after position. Their multi-angled video, verified metrics, profile make this a CAN’T MISS event for pitchers. Price and schedule remains the same.

I95 METRO BASEBALL has received unprecedented requests from players and coaches from across the country to help provide certified player evaluations, exposure, footage and visibility for prospective collegiate student-athletes during this D1 quiet period and off-season. Our Summer and Fall showcases were a huge success with 115+ colleges (60 D1) schools attending our FOUR sold out events. I95 Metro Baseball continues to deliver the best showcase experience in the country. Now the coaches are ready to see who to follow and who to keep an eye on for the Summer of 2023. (2023 Summer dates to be posted November 15)

Our combines started when college coaches were not permitted to see prospects off campus. Because of this, many coaches reached out asking if there was a way we could help continue their recruiting efforts. We spoke with them at length and they said, they still have to recruit for the future, can we help? Our first four combines were a HUGE success and players’ videos have a combined over 35,000 views and over 200 committed college players from our combines alone. As the quiet period is in effect we have once again received requests to conduct another combine. Please note- while coaches can’t /will not be there in person (Due to NCAA Recruiting Calendar), it does NOT mean you will not hear from them, be recruited by them or invited to campus. We are providing EXACTLY what they want to see.

Coaches are relying on this event HEAVILY for their recruiting and can’t wait to see your VERIFIED metrics, data, evaluation and personal recruiting video. The post-event package you will be receiving will be second to none and WE will send to EVERY coach in our database (115 colleges/60 D1) and you will have to keep.

All coaches in our database are schools that attended our events last season and will be in attendance this season. These schools & coaches have a personal relationship with I95 Metro Baseball.

Additionally the I95 Metro Baseball combine is the next event to be eligible for the I95 Metro Baseball – National Rankings. These rankings are relied upon by college coaches and help them in their process of players to follow up with, contact and see further. (Next ranking update – March 1, 2023 after our combine)

Here is a list of our current rankings

Here are the current statistics of our ranked players:

  • I95 Metro Baseball – First Team – 81% college players, 55% D1
  • I95 Metro Baseball – Second Team – 60% college players, 15% D1
  • I95 Metro Baseball – First Team – 50% college players, 5% D1

Coaches love our format, metric testing and video angels/length and what we capture. We spend hours asking the coaches what THEY want to see. Our list of coaches that will receive access are ALL coaches we have a relationship with and speak to regularly and scheduled to attend in person this summer when the recruiting ban is lifted. We speak about the players that attend, players they want to see, how they carry themselves on the field and obviously their GPA and talent. There is no better time to show college coaches your ability than our preseason combine. With all players off from school, coaches asked us to hold on this date (President’s Day). Players have no conflicts with games, should be in great shape and get the coaches their information before their Spring season begins. In addition our combine will be held at the TOP indoor facility on the east coast (Sportika). Our relationships with over 60+ Division 1 and 115+ Colleges in total is something we greatly value… and is something YOU really need to benefit from as well. I95 has developed and forged trusted relationships with College programs and coaches from across the country. Coaches WILL view our reports and watch videos  that we send on your behalf. We assure you that you will be seen by our coaches albeit in a different capacity. Coaches genuinely do need verified data and metrics for their recruiting evaluations but from a trusted source like I95 Metro Baseball!
