The Tampa Bay Sports Commission through a partnership with Hillsborough County, will host its sixth annual High School Baseball combine. The event, which will be hosted at Jesuit’s Hyer Family Park, takes place Saturday as 50 local high school baseball players will go through batting practice, infield/outfield and then play in a 12-inning exhibition.
The players will be split into two teams of around 25 players representing the East and West of Hillsborough County. The East team will be coached by Wharton coach Scott Hoffman and Brandon High coach Matt Stallbaumer, while the west will be coached by Alonso’s Landy Faedo and Robinson’s Kevin McCray.
The area organizer, Gaither baseball coach Frank Permuy said the combine is geared toward providing currently uncommitted upper classmen a chance to get scouts and college coaches’ attention. TBSC Multimedia Specialist Michael Farrant said the event usually draws 5-10 college coaches as well as scouts.
“The Tampa Bay Sports Commission works to recruit coaches and scouts from local colleges to attend and recruit the athletes participating in the game,” an e-mail from Farrant to the Tampa Tribune read.
The event held each year since 2008, begins at 9 a.m. with registration, with the scrimmage taking place at 11 a.m. Admission is free to parents and the public.
