PITTSBURGH, PA – CollClubSports, the National Club Baseball Association and the National Club Softball Assocation are excited to announce that they have signed with the Tampa Bay Sports Commission to bring the 2016 NCBA/NCSA Spring Training Showcase back to Tampa, FL. After a record-setting 75 club baseball and club softball teams attended the 2015 event at Mike Sansone Park in Plant City, FL, anticipation for the 2016 Spring Training Showcase is already building.
The field complex at Mike Sansone Park features two full-size baseball fields and an auxiliary practice field. In addition, the complex boasts two NCAA Regulation softball fields with four batting tunnels. Additional fields in the Plant City area will also be available as needed throughout the month-long showcase. The field crews and umpire staff at Mike Sansone Park are a huge part of the success that the Spring Training Showcase has seen over the past ten years.
The event has also added on other top-notch auxiliary baseball fields in the Plant City Area, including the baseball stadium at Plant City High School and MLK Field at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center. The NCBA is so lucky to have these facilities on-hand to make the 2016 Spring Training Showcase the best one yet.
For many, the Spring Training Showcase has become an annual event. This will be the eleventh year that the NCBA and Tampa have partnered to host the annual outing. The Tampa Bay area offers a number of activities for teams to enjoy on their Spring Break vacations. Participants can soak up the sun at nearby Clearwater Beach, ride the rides at Busch Gardens or get tickets to see a Phillies spring training game in Clearwater, or a Yankees game right in Tampa. Take a drive to see the Braves, Orioles, Pirates and Tigers too. With so many things to do teams should be sure to set aside some time to play ball!
