““We are proud of all of our players who were selected to play in the Top Prospects Showcase. Obviously it is a great opportunity for each of them to play in front of college scouts. The North American League does a great job maximizing on player exposure and the Top Prospects Showcase is yet another example of what separates our league from the rest,” Doremus said. “It should be an exciting couple of days for our players and I am sure each one of them will relish the chance and take full advantage of it. Any time you get to compete with some of the best players in your league it is fun and gives you a great platform to showcase your ability in a marquee event.”
