Infielders

The Diamond Skills Dodgers 17U Showcase team is one of the most successful and influential showcase teams in the nation. Since forming in 2007 we have sent more than 100 players into college baseball and have sent several into professional baseball including including current Major Leaguer LJ Hoes of the Houston Astros and 2014 First Round pick Nick Howard from the University of Virginia. Despite fielding only 1 (one) team our track record of successfully placing players in college baseball is outstanding. We have close personal relationships with the college coaches from around the United States across all levels of college baseball. We also enjoy strong relationships with many Major League organizations. Our players have gone onto careers at some of the most powerful baseball programs in the nation including Virginia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi State. We have also seen our players continue their careers at some of the most elite academic institutions in the nation including Harvard, Princeton, Duke, Georgetown, Wake Forest, Holy Cross, Davidson and Emory. Players interested in joining the Dodgers should contact Mark Gibbs at mgibbs@stjohnschs.org
