Combine/Showcase Information - PLEASE READ!!!! The Peninsula Pilots and Virginia Baseball Tournaments are teaming up to have four exciting college/pro scouting events for the 2018 season. There will be a many colleges represented at each event of all levels (D1, D3, JUCO). Players will have the opportunity to participate in a baseball combine with college coaches in attendance. The combine will feature many skill tests including offensive and defensive rotations. Players participating in the combine will receive feedback scores to let them know how they “stack up” with their peers. Combine participates will have the opportunity for a question and answer session with College Coaches and current Peninsula Pilot players about the recruiting process/the college baseball experience/the summer collegiate baseball experience. As you can see, it will be a great opportunity for your players/parents to get the information they need. College Coaches will also be stationed at the various venues with teams having the opportunity to play games at each venue.  Here is a list of some of the colleges attending:  Wake Tech CC, Bryant and Stratton CC, Paul D Camp CC, Patrick Henry CC, Virginia Wesleyan University, Christopher Newport, Averett College, University of Charleston, King, Virginia State, Norfolk State, and North Carolina Central.  

We held our first Combine/Showcase in the fall of 2017. The following colleges scouted the event: VMI, JMU, ODU, High Point, Longwood University, Norfolk State University, William & Mary, Liberty University, Ferrum College, Averett University, Marymount University, Bridgewater College, Christopher Newport University, Newport News Apprentice School, Virginia Wesleyan, Thomas Nelson Community College, Stratford University, Paul D. Camp Community College, Bryant and Stratton College. The following major league clubs had scouts in attendance: Braves, Pirates, Cubs. The Peninsula Pilots (Coastal Plains Summer Collegiate League) also had coaches in attendance looking for future Pilot players. We look to add to this list.
