Because "there is a college for every athlete," as the press release (and the website) attest, Coral Gables Senior High School has scheduled a baseball recruiting showcase Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The target: "unsigned seniors, college players looking to transfer and upcoming high school juniors and seniors looking to get recruited," according to officials at Team USA College Recruiters, Inc.
Coaches include former UM player/Yankees prospect Rey Noriega. Among the success stories: Coral Park's Alex Castellanos, who went to Belmont Abbey (N.C.) College and was drafted in the 10th round by the Cardinals this year.
Cost is $70 in advance or $80 on the day of the showcase. E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (305-273-8904) for info.
