About the Showcase Program:

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.
