ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The University of New Mexico baseball program will host a Fall Showcase this weekend, Nov. 3 and 4. Walk-up registration is available starting at 9 a.m. with the day's events beginning at 10 a.m.
High school players from around the state ages 16-18 who are interested in playing baseball at a collegiate level have the option of attending the Saturday or Sunday session. Each day's events include morning instruction, a recruitment seminar and an afternoon game. Showcase participants will be on the field working directly with players and coaches on skill development and technique instruction.
"It will help high school players understand how to play the game and it will help them understand how to get into college," Birmingham said. "It will be a very, very enlightening situation for kids who want to play college baseball. It will help them see the directions they can go playing college baseball."
