ABOUT CANADIAN FUTURES SHOWCASE
The biggest amateur baseball tournament in Canada makes its long-awaited return with the 8th annual Canadian Futures Showcase, running from September 20 to 24 in Ottawa, Ontario.
Traditionally hosted in Toronto at Rogers Centre, the Canadian Futures Showcase will be held at Ottawa Stadium (RCTG Park) for this year only, due to contractual obligations and unforeseen scheduling challenges at Rogers Centre.
The Canadian Futures Showcase will welcome the best 140 draft and college eligible players across the country for a five-day showcase. Day one will kick off with all six teams participating in a scout day evaluation, followed by 3 days of games and finishing with a home run derby and prospects game on the final day.
Since 2013, 110 former showcase players have been drafted by Major League Baseball organizations with over 500 receiving college scholarships to continue their academic and athletic careers. There is no better way for professional scouts and college recruiters to experience the Canadian Futures Showcase than with a Scout Package.
Final rosters and teams have been selected for the Canadian Futures Showcase and can be seen here.
