This event is considered to be a major part of the recruiting process for the Ferrum College Baseball Program! The format is designed to give the coaches in attendance the best opportunity to evaluate each player and make a determination on where they would fit in their program.

The itinerary will include: 60 yard dash, defensive workout and offensive workout. Live games will also take place so the pitchers can be evaluated by throwing to hitters. Coaches will also further see each position player in an actual game setting.
