Entering its 21st season, the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB) offers an open classification of play, the highest level of professional baseball other than Major League Baseball. Atlantic League players are highly experienced professionals, having progressed through professional baseball developmental levels (A, AA, AAA). More than 40% of Atlantic League players have major league service time. Atlantic League clubs pay players to win baseball games, not apprentice in baseball’s developmental levels.
As an incentive to attend, each ALPB team will offer at least one 2019 contract to a showcase participant.
Following the event, all 8 ALPB teams will execute a draft and each will choose at least one player to play 2019 in the Atlantic League, the highest professional baseball league aside from Major League Baseball.
Breakdown of the Player Showcase Weekend:
Each ALPB club will sign at least ONE player participating in the event.
Major League Scouts from MLB organizations will be in attendance, with the right to sign players on the spot.
Scouts from other Professional leagues will also be in attendance to sign qualified players.
The event will feature an MLB-pro-style workout, plus LIVE gameplay.
The Player Showcase weekend is open to all players eligible to sign professional contracts.
The event will be heavily marketed on all Prospect Dugout platforms, increasing awareness of all Prospects in attendance.
