STATEMENT

The Blue Jays are pleased to announce the return of our annual Baseball Academy showcase this fall. This year’s event will be held from September 20 to 24 at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

The Baseball Academy Showcase is a national amateur baseball showcase held at Rogers Centre each September hosted by the Blue Jays Baseball Academy. The goal is to provide a showcase opportunity for the best amateur baseball players born in Canada, with draft and college eligibility. It acts to centralize the best Canadian baseball players, with the intention of exposing them to as many MLB scouts and college recruiters as possible.

Simply put, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy's intention is to provide a platform that both highlights and markets the high level of amateur baseball talent in this country. 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.

The showcases’ success has relied on national in-person evaluations, which begin in the spring and lead into the fall showcase. Blue Jays Baseball Academy staff will once again travel from coast to coast and offer open tryout opportunities to players who wish to compete in the showcase.

Tryout dates and locations can be found by clicking here.

Players selected for the showcase will be divided evenly among six teams. Players will showcase their skills through in-game competition and a dedicated scout evaluation day. The final day of the showcase will include a home run derby and a prospects game.

We are also in the process of rebranding the showcase and are excited to unveil a new name and logo in the coming months.

The Blue Jays look forward to welcoming the best amateur baseball players in Canada back to Rogers Centre in 2022.
