The NCAA Transfer Portal has very quickly become one of the most important stories in college softball over the last few years and crucial way for top D-I and D-II programs to infuse talent into their programs.
Diamond Direction, one of the top softball camp and tournament organizations in the country, has announced the date and location of the Diamond Direction Softball Portal Showcase, which will take place June 14, 2020 in the Atlanta area.
“We want to provide collegiate athletes with a way to showcase themselves after they decide to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal,” Nate Eaton, the President of Diamond Direction, stated today.
The Diamond Direction Softball Portal Showcase will be limited by position (Pitcher, Catcher, Middle Infielder, Corner Infielder, Outfielder or Utility Player) so players who sign up first at their respective positions will have the maximum opportunity to be evaluated.
Participants will be showcased in live games and in controlled practice environments.
Hundreds of college coaches are expected to be in attendance from all Power 5 Conferences and many from mid-major conferences to evaluate.
Many will be in Atlanta already scouting at top travel ball showcases and have indicated they will stay to evaluate prospects at the Softball Portal Showcase.
“Based on our conversations with college coaches, we expect each conference in NCAA Division I to be represented to evaluate at the event,” added Eaton.
The Diamond Direction Softball Portal Showcase is open to any 18-to-23-year-old. Registration for players will open late April / early May, 2020.
It is expected the event will fill up quickly and Eaton indicated a second day could be added if demand is strong enough.
