"My son had a dream of playing college baseball and as any father would do sought out the best ways to get him exposure. I signed him up for the I95 Metro Baseball Series that was held at MCU Park here in Brooklyn NY. It was one of the best investments I've made. Not only did Matthew gain a lot of interest from college coaches that attended the event but about a month after the event I was receiving personal emails from coaches that weren't in attendance but saw his evaluations on the website and then spoke to other coaches that were there. It eventually lead him to verbally commit this past week to Notre Dame University. It also was helpful to me as a parent when college coaches, one from the University of Richmond and the other from Stony Brook University spoke to the parents and fielded some of our questions. I recommend I95 Metro Baseball Series to anyone looking to get there son college exposure. Thank you again. Go Irish!!"
We were initially unsure about traveling from North Carolina to Brooklyn for a showcase, but I95 far exceeded our expectations and gave Sam a chance to get in front of coaches and schools that would normally never see him. The organization of the showcase was impressive, and the number of coaches and quality of schools was unmatched in any other showcases we've seen. Sam was contacted by many colleges at all levels after the event, and as a result of contact made at the I95 showcase we are very happy to report that Sam has committed to play for Brown University. We highly recommend I95 Metro Showcases.
As a Head High School Baseball Coach in Southern California for the past 19 years, I have sat and watched my son Nick attend several showcases over the years, often-times leaving disappointed. This past summer, I had decided to send Nick to the I-95 Stadium Series Baseball showcase in Brooklyn. Being from California, we wanted our son to gain exposure from a variety of different colleges on the East Coast that had never seen him play before. We were not disappointed! I-95 was the best showcase event that Nick had ever attended. The 2-day event was well-organized, gave all players a lot of attention and included ninety-five coaches from all collegiate levels. The exposure that Nick received at the camp was incredible! During and after the event, Nick received a lot of interest from a variety of different colleges that were in attendance and ultimately accepted a scholarship to play at Wagner College, Staten Island. Thank you to the entire I-95 staff for running a first-class event and giving Nick an opportunity to continue to play baseball at the Division 1 level.
My family and I thought the event was one of the best we've ever been to. I really liked how smoothly the event flowed through the day. I enjoyed being able to compete in the big stadium and love how the attention was always on the players. There didn't seem to be any distractions that prevented us players from getting the best possible looks from coaches. The main thing that stood out to my family and me was that there was someone announcing everyones fastball velocity. I found this very cool and quite energizing. I felt like this pushed me to throw harder on the next pitch to try and beat the velocity I had previously thrown at. Finally, the ease of interacting with coaches was amazing. During day one they were all behind home plate for the position player evaluations and then they went to the bullpen to watch the pitchers throw. It was very cool to have all of the coaches gathered around the bullpen as I threw. On day 2, all the coaches were again behind home plate, But this time to watch the players perform in the game. Some of the coaches personally walked up to me after I threw my inning in the game, but I was also able to speak to some other coaches after the game ended. Overall, the I-95 showcase was one of the best showcases I went to as a player this summer. I would recommend attending this showcase to anyone even remotely in the area. This was a great experience that every player should get the chance to have. I-95 helped me move closer to securing my college commitment that I might not have had if I had not attended I-95. Thanks I-95!
My son attended the MCU Park Brooklyn event in July of 2019. We came in not really knowing what to expect.D4What we found was truly a first class event throughout both days. The staff was phenomenal and it was such an awesome opportunity to be seen by so many coaches (94 if I recall) in one location! My son had so many contacts with coaches from that event it was almost overwhelming. I'm so thankful that we were able to make the connection with Coach Picardo at Catholic University where my son will continue his academic and athletic journey. Looking forward to bringing his younger brother to an i95 event next summer! Thanks again and keep up the great work!
Brandon attended both I95 events, the event was a amazing event and it was run absolutely perfect. The professionalism and the way it was handled for all the prospects to be seen were far beyond my expectations. We were little apprehensive knowing Brandon was a little older already and competing with HS juniors and sophomores, but the attention Brandon got and the amount of interest he received was amazing. We were actually contacted by total of 16 schools ranging from Juco to Division 1 and finally we agreed to attend Wagner College. They watched Brandon in the bullpen and than in the games and immediately had major interest in Brandon. We need to thank Mike and Rob for truly a amazing event and without them Brandon would not have this opportunity to play Division 1 baseball.
The I95 Metro Showcase was one of the best showcases I have ever been to. It was very professionally run, with each player getting their own opportunity to shine in front of the college coaches. I was able to meet and get in contact with the University of New Haven there, the school I am now committed to. While it is two long days of baseball, the opportunity to connect with coaches and showcase your talents is amazing, and I'm forever grateful for the showcase's help in connecting me to a great college program that I am going to spend the next years of my life at.
It was great to play in front of many coaches in a great facility. Opened a lot of doors and many college opportunities!
Thank you guys! Without going to your showcase I don't think that I would be where I am now. I'll send over a picture later I'm in school right now. Thanks again!
I95 events are very well run. Their staff is professional and they do an exceptional job of giving each player their moment in the spotlight. With two full days of exposure, this is no doubt a premier showcase event.
I95 does an incredible job of matching both the recruiting needs of college coaches, and prospective players. The event is both efficient and effective in meeting the goals of players receiving exposure, and coaches having a chance to evaluate players in a relevant setting. In terms of players being able to be properly evaluated in front of a multitude of coaches from all levels, I can't think of a better event. The entire process and execution of the I95 event is organized, detailed, and well-communicated to college coaches at an extremely high level. The effort of the I95 staff to meet the needs of both parties in the recruiting process sets them apart from other events and something that does not go unnoticed by college coaches, as evident in the number of coaches in attendance. Looking forward to having these events be a staple of our recruiting calendar.
Every I95 Metro showcase has been nothing short of top notch. The facilities, staff members, and talent produced at these events make it a coaches dream to recruit at. I would highly recommend any serious high school athlete to attend any/all these events to maximize their chances of playing at the next level.
The i95 metro was hands down one the the best run showcases I have been to this summer. The amount of exposure each player gets during this event blew me away. The talent level was high and instructors all new the game and were great to interact with. I cannot wait to get back up there next summer! Truly a great event that I would recommend to anyone. Thank you for having me! Go Niners!
Committed to Salisbury University. I attended the I-95 Metro Showcase last year July 31-August 1 at Arm & Hammer Park in Trenton, NJ. I was impressed with the layout and the execution of the showcase. The drills were setup where I was given the opportunity for every college or scout in attendance to see me perform every drill I was engaged in instead of other camps or showcases I have been at where there several drills were running simultaneously, thus minimizing the chances to be seen by coaches or scouts. The personnel running the event were very helpful and did a great job of communicating and engaging with me throughout the event. In addition, they had events for my parents to attend where the coaches would give advice and insight into the recruiting process and their expectations when evaluating players at these types of camps. I would highly recommend I-95 Metro Showcase's to anyone that is looking for a good venue to be seen by college coaches and scouts."
I just committed to York college of Pennsylvania. Received attention from all 3 divisions of schools after the NJ event. By far the best showcase I ever attended. I have already started to spread the I95 name to my friends and teammates.
Head Strength and Conditioning Coach. Last year I attended the Trenton showcase, which was the first I-95 event I had ever been to. The amount of talented players has made it an annual must see event for our staff. Mike and his staff hustled and worked very hard to showcase all players, and educate families on the recruiting process as well. All level and types of schools attended, which makes it an event that exposes you the most.
Thank you I95 Staff, for giving me a chance to experience the i95 showcase, I've learned that it takes a lot to get to play college baseball and I feel like you gave me one of the best opportunities I can get to show colleges my talent and why I should play for their school. Thanks to you, I already have one division 1 college already contact me and tell me that he was impressed by me. Thank you very much for this opportunity.
Going into the summer before entering my senior year I knew that I had to get in front of more coaches to get recognized. I went to several local area prospect camps and had decided to attend the I95 Metro Baseball Showcase as many of the schools I was targeting would be in attendance all in one place. I made my list, reached out to those I was interested in to let them know I'd be there. Afterwards I had many emails from various level of coaches. I was invited to attend a camp from some of my top schools and narrowed it down to the one that fit my interests. Proud to say I'm going to be an Eagle!
Thank you I95 Metro for giving me this opportunity to play in front of college scouts it was truly a pleasure to be apart of this showcase couldn't thank you enough , this will truly impact my future in baseball an my academic future.
2018 Graduate - West Chester Univ. Commit If you are serious about playing college baseball I would highly recommend this showcase. I have done my fair share of showcases during my high school career and this one by far was the best one. Not only the best scouted but the best organized. The I95 staff made sure EVERY single player was the center of attention. After the showcase I got a couple dozen emails from coaches wanting me to go on campus. I was blown away with how amazing this event was.
I95 Metro Baseball Was one of the best if not THE best showcase/camp that I attended throughout the summer.¬† From the player packets to the itinerary and camp breakdown all the way to the field set up, everything was run with professionalism and attention to detail which is extremely important when trying to evaluate as many kids as college coaches do throughout the summer and fall.¬† There was never a moment where the coaches did not know which kid was which or where a player was on the field.¬† The staff was very accommodating as well as efficient and quick when covering everything that needed to be handled through the event. I95 also seemed to attract a higher quality player then most camps tend to attract which is always a positive when college coaches are involved.¬† Serious players took part in a serious event and got some serious attention from a lot of coaches!
I-95 is one of the best ran camps in America. They are responsible for majority of my recruits. They go above and beyond to make sure you have what you need to contact these kids and see them in the right light.
Committed to Farleigh Dickson Univ. D1 As a parent that has been around the "Travel Baseball" world for many years and I have been fortunate to have my older son play NCAA Baseball, the recruiting process can be taxing and grueling on a prospective student Athlete, as well as the parents. With my younger son, entering his senior year in HS, 2018 grad., I have participated in my share of "College Showcase Events". I can say that by far, the I-95 Metro ID Showcase was one of the best and we'll organized scouting events I have ever been to, thus far. First thing that caught my attention, was the amount of College coaches and recruiters from all levels that were present for both days of the event. These College Coaches didn't just come and sit down and watch players. They took time and spoke to the players and Parents about the recruiting process and answered any questions that the parents had. That in it's self was priceless. The first day of the event where the Players had all their measurables recorded was professional and well run. Players got more then the typical 5/6 ground balls or 8 swings. They really had an opportunity to Showcase their Baseball skills offensively and Defensively, as well as their overall Athletic ability. Pitchers pitched a legitimate Bullpen session with all the Coaches present. No kid stood around waiting for something to do. They went from one area to another getting their measurables recorded. Day 2 was also run well and efficient. Real games were played at different time periods and several teams were made, giving each player plenty of opportunities to showcase their talents at their primary and secondary positions, as well as get several live at bats against live pitching. The recruiting process can be very expensive and many times we have to pick and choose what may be best for our child or the families budget. The I-95 Showcase was by far the best event my son participated in, and I would recommend it to any player that is serious about playing baseball in College.
Elon University D1 Commit You guys really do do everything right. I mean I think without the showcase I would never have known I could throw 88 mph meeting the Elon coach there I think cemented my value to them and it's where I really proved myself to be a division 1 player. The organization of your program was really really done well. The interaction between some of the coaches and staff members was great. The constant fact that coaches know who is doing what is something u don't see at any other showcases. No pun intended but you guys knocked it out of the park.
2018 Univ. Of Delaware D1 Commit Hi Coach. I want to thank you for running such a great and well organized showcase this summer in New York. It was great to see the players have so many opportunities to prove themselves in front of the college coaches in all aspects of the game. My son Brad had a very successful weekend and was in contact with so many schools during and after the event. A few weeks later he committed to the University of Delaware and looks forward to his future as a Blue Hen.
Nicholas Kondichook, Marymount University Commit My son Nicholas Kondichook attended your camp in Trenton NJ, and I wanted to let you know because of that camp he is going to be playing college baseball. He had two opportunities prior to attending your camp, and because of the exposure at your camp he would not of had the opportunity to be seen by these other three colleges, he will now be playing outside of Washington DC At Marymount University in Arlington VA. He has been playing baseball since he was 6 yrs old from high level travel to showcase and has played at such locations as Ft Myers with perfect game to Emerson GA, and all the way up the east coast to Cooperstown. With all that he received more attention from the results of your camp. He is a catcher and had a 1.89 pop time which caught the eye of three schools. We wanted to thank you for your camp.
This summer I had a opportunity to sign four of my student athletes up for the i95 Metro Baseball College Showcase. I couldnt have been more pleased with the whole event for the two days. They coaches and staff went above and beyond to get the most of not only my players, but all of the players that signed up for the showcase. The event was planned out perfectly where all student athletes were able to get a fair look and highlight their full potential. The coaches and staff were also a class act and were extremely supportive to the players and made themselves accessible to all parents for questions. What I liked the most was the lecture sessions for the players and parents. Both parents and players were able to get real life experience anywhere from D1 to JUCO colleges. It was very helpful for everyone. This was one of the best showcases I have been to and I am excited to keep bring my players there in the future years. I cant say enough good things about it.
ONE FIELD! This was the best thing I did for my son. Instead of taking batting practice in the games, he hit on the field! My son thought he was a high D1 player, but when he saw the talent at the showcase, he realized he had more of a D2 fit. I was proud he saw that. He left saying: "Dad, I better work harder to be recruited." That was worth the drive alone.
I knew it was a little early to send my 9th grade son to the showcase but I am so happy we did. The fact he got to see and hear what the coaches expect of him over the next few years was great. We also loved the speaking portion, that will help him in the next few years. I will be sending my son back next year again to the I95 Metro Showcase.
This was a great experience and really want to thank you for letting have this experience and for making it possible. This event really help me to step up to the moment. This also helped just getting my name out there so that colleges can see me, this really helped for the future because people and more importantly colleges know my name. This made me feel special in a kind of way that not every kid can get the opportunity that you have gave me, i am really thankful.
Our son had an incredible experience at the I95 showcase. I was so impressed that they had a coach from each level make a short speech about the commitment needed. D1, D2, D3 and Juco. Even one of the MLB scouts there spoke! Beyond just the baseball, they instilled in them what they need to succeed in college. Thank you guys.
As a Mom, I care about organization. Well this was it. They had a packet for us when we came in, a t-shirt, a table set-up with information on all coaches, a list of coaches and e-mails, the schedule and more. I was blown away right at 8:15AM. Then I watched them warm-up, go through drills, take notes and measurements, I was sold. If you want the best event for your son, sign up for this!
I loved that my son went against players from all different regions. He spoke to players from several different states and thought that was awesome. He has received several invites to camps and he will be attending those this Fall!
