Pittsburgh, PA – CollClubSports and the National Club Baseball & Softball Associations are excited to announce that they have signed with the Tampa Bay Sports Commission to bring the 2017 NCBA/NCSA Spring Training Showcase back to Tampa, FL. This will be the twelfth year that two organizations have partnered to host the annual outing. After a record-setting 70 teams attended the 2016 event at Mike Sansone Park in Plant City, FL, anticipation for the 2017 Spring Training Showcase is already building.
The field complex at Mike Sansone Park was formerly used by the Texas Rangers for Spring Training and features two full-size baseball fields and an auxiliary practice field. In addition, the complex boasts two NCAA regulation softball fields with four batting cages. Additional fields in the Plant City area will also be used as needed throughout the month-long showcase.
For many, the Spring Training Showcase has become an annual event. The Tampa Bay area offers a number of activities for teams to enjoy on their spring break vacations. With the recent 2016 showcase raising the bar, the 2017 NCBA/NCSA Spring Training Showcase is sure to boast an even more successful event. There are already many conversations taking place with potential host hotels and new local business sponsors for the upcoming showcase.
“The Tampa Bay Sports Commission is excited to announce a new agreement with the National Federation of Collegiate Club Sports Leagues, L.L.C. that will keep their National Club Baseball and Softball Spring Training Showcase in Tampa Bay through 2019,” said Jason Aughey, Senior Director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission. “This event has experienced unprecedented growth over the past decade and continues to generate significant economic impact throughout Hillsborough County. Through our partnership with CollClubSports, we will work collaboratively in an effort to raise the bar and create a first-rate experience for all collegiate club teams visiting Tampa Bay.”
