Based out of an indoor facility in Apex, NC, the TPA Nationals Showcase program started in 2015 with 1 team. We fully established ourselves in 2017 when we grew to 4 teams, almost exclusively built on players from Wake County. We currently have 6 showcase teams in our showcase program and couldn’t be prouder of the talent featured throughout both our rosters and coaching staff!
Over the past three years, over 50 players have received scholarships. Twenty-eight of those players will be furthering their athletic careers at the Division 1 level. The success of our alumni has allowed us to continue to attract the highest caliber coaches-all of whom played at the collegiate level.
Young prospects cannot get scholarships without exposure to college coaches. Besides the strong relationships with college coaches we’ve built, we build extremely challenging tournament schedules to ensure we face the best competition in front of college coaches. Our summer schedule includes 6 showcase tournaments, primarily consisting of Perfect Game, PBR, Dynamic, or USA baseball events. Our teams play 4 tournaments during the fall season.
Since our inception, we’ve always taken pride in prioritizing the development of our players over winning at all costs. We believe that winning is a byproduct of the fundamental foundation laid in practice as well as our emphasis on the importance of character development. We strive to instill values in our players that will lend to their success well beyond the baseball field.
We truly believe that we offer more resources to help our players succeed than any other organization in the region. Between unlimited access to our indoor facility with two Hittrax units, 3 pitching tunnels/4 hitting cages, weekly indoor practices during the high school season, four field practices per week in the summer months at the beautiful home field of the Holly Springs Salamanders-Ting Park, and numerous strength/speed classes run by our amazing Sports Performance staff, we offer all the tools a young prospect needs to reach their athletic potential. With the recent addition of a certified mobility coach and access to a portable Trackman pitching unit, we’re excited to have even more resources at our disposal to help our athletes refine their game.
Beyond the competitive schedule, indoor and field practices, and top notch coaching staff, our players further benefit from our strong relationships with USA baseball and PBR. Each of our last two PBR tryouts/scout days hosted over 150 players. Our original ownership group featured Bill Burniston (current strength and conditioning coach of the Carolina Hurricanes/USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team) and Josh Bloom (team doctor for Carolina Hurricanes/Various USA Baseball teams, and one of the most respected concussion experts in the country). One of our other former owners/the founder of our baseball program, Kyle Wilson, is currently the hitting coach for the Durham Bulls. Kyle is a phenomenal resource during the Minor League offseason and shares his depth of knowledge with our coaches and players constantly. Another phenomenal resource for our staff has been Paul Seiler, the Executive Director/CEO of USA baseball. Paul is as respected a member of the baseball community as anyone in the country, and his experience provides invaluable insight for our baseball staff.

1. Umpires keep track of innings pitched on the official scorecard during the course of the game. Coaches verify and sign the score card at the end of the game. To file a complaint a coach must bring evidence of the player in question to a Baseball Showcase staff member. If a player is in violation of the innings pitch rule and the opposing coach has filed a complaint, the player in violation will have to be replaced on the mound.

9. Team playoff ranking head to head / Wins / Losses / Runs Against / Runs Scored
*HTH All Play - Only rank teams if all tied teams have played all other tied teams.
The Head-To-Head Tie Breaker ranks teams by the number of wins against each team involved in the tie. To calculate the Head-To-Head Tie Breaker, list the teams who are tied, then total the number of wins each team has against each team involved in the tie. The team that has beaten the other teams involved in the tie the most is the winner. If the tied teams played each other more than one time then the team that has won more games against the other tied teams wins.
If two teams who are tied have not played each other but the Head-To-Head win loss records indicate a hierarchy with a "Dominant Team", then the dominant team wins the Head-To-Head Tie Breaker. (Example: Team A has beaten Team B in calculating the Head-To-Head Tie Breaker. Team C is also tied with A and B. If A has beaten C then A wins the tie breaker. If A has not played C but B has beaten C then A wins the tie breaker.)
In the above Dominant Team scenario, if A has not played C and C has beaten B then the Head-To-Head calculation can not be used. Also, if the tie breaker does not resolve the tie, then the next tie breaker in the Tie Breaker Order section list is used. If this is the last tie breaker in the list then the teams remain tied.
10. 18u-13u All pool games. No new inning will be started after 1hr 50min.
12u-9u Pool games. No new inning will be started after 1hr 35min.
11. Playoff games (After 1hr 50min time limit (18u-13u); 1hr 35min (12u-9u) games will go to California tie breaker format.)
12. Run rule: 15 runs after 3 innings / 10 runs after 4 innings/8 runs after 5 innings
13. Injury withdrawal: If a team is batting their full roster (10 or more players) and an injury occurs that removes a player from the game the teams line up will be condensed without penalty. If at any point the team’s roster drops below 9 players, an out will be incurred for the missing player.
