10-20 COLLEGE COACHES -
Unlike other camps and showcases All American Baseball has developed the most productive baseball games camps in the country, for both high school and junior college players. Founded by Rick Twyman and the late Dick “Chief” Twyman with over 20 years of running college showcase camps and owning the Wellington Heat (previously the Haysville Heat) in the “Jayhawk League” a national power in summer collegiate baseball.  The Twyman family has been connecting both high school and junior college players with college coaches and professional scouts for two decades. For years All American has been proving there is a college for EVERY prospect academically and athleticlly.  While most parents/prospect rely on our high school or travel/tournament teams for exposure, that just isn’t enough. Times are changing and it’s time to adjust or be left out.

When college coaches attend tournaments, “which is not often because of NCAA rules, school budgets and not enough staff ” they are typically there because they have specific players that they need to watch play. When at those games, they typically stay anywhere from 1-2 innings in order to see a pitcher pitch or a batter get his 1 at bat. Once that happens, they’re off to see another player that they had on their list to watch at the next field. Most tournaments have anywhere from 30-100 teams in attendance with anywhere from 5-30 fields being used. So lets break this down, if your at these tournaments to get your reps, and fine tune your skills – GREAT, but if your there to be scouted odds aren’t good it will happen. If you’re a player who fly’s under the radar like most of us are, you’re chances of being seen and evaluated by that coach are slim to none. Maybe you were lucky enough to get 1 at bat while that college coach was at the game watching your teammate and maybe you hit the ball well or were lucky enough to defend the ball and you did well.  Maybe you are a pitcher for the opposite team and you threw well.  Unfortunately, chances are, it just didn’t matter. It’s very rare and unlikely that you were able to make enough of an impression in just that 1 at bat or inning pitched for the college coaches to pay attention.

That is why HEAT – All American Games Camps are a can’t miss opportunity. Since most of us are not a prospect out of high school that stands out of the crowd with exceptional baseball awards and honors, we need college coaches to recognize our playing abilities, attitude, character, work ethic and other qualities that make us the great ballplayers we are. For that to happen, it generally requires that a college coach watches you play multiple times so that they see you consistently play the game well and get the job done.

With HEAT – All American Games Camps you will have the opportunity to display your skills in front of a minimum of 10-20 Division I ,II, III, NAIA and JC college coaches. (That is like attending 10-20 college camps) You will have two full days and the opportunity to learn, be evaluated and showcase your skills in front of current college coaches.   All of whom have the ability to recommend talent and or recruit for their college programs.  Players go through a Defensive Skills Showcase, run the 60 and play in 3 games ALL ON ONE FIELD WITH THE COACHES ON THE FIELD NOT IN THE STANDS.

It is a privilege to participate in our Games Camps. A HEAT – All American Games Camp is a great way to take your baseball career to the next level. By playing and performing in front of some of the top college programs/coaches in the country as they are at our showcases representing their colleges. In a single word – EXPOSURE.
