USA Baseball partners with MLB on 2021 Prospect Development Pipeline premier events
19/03/2021
The six invitationals are scheduled between 1 May and 6 June in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas, Washington and California.

USA Baseball has announced that it would facilitate six Prospect Development Pipeline (PDP) Premier Events in 2021, in conjunction with Major League Baseball (MLB). All of the events will be conducted on an invite-only basis and feature the top amateur baseball players in selected regions of the country.

"These events will place a heavy emphasis on data collection and use of advanced assessment technologies," commented Russell Hartford, USA Baseball Senior Director of Technology, "making them not only a unique opportunity for young players to receive invaluable resources and actionable data that will help them create sustained development, but also a chance for the scouting community to see some of the best draft-eligible prospects in action this spring."

Following each PDP Performance Assessment, athletes will receive a fully-customized player report, inclusive of personal results and data from their evaluation, development information with guidelines for improvements, and other relevant resources to aid players and families in navigating the amateur baseball experience.

The Prospect Development Pipeline (PDP) is a collaborative effort between Major League Baseball and USA Baseball to establish a player development pipeline leading to the MLB Draft for amateur baseball players in the United States.

In addition to the PDP Premier Events, the PDP also includes the recently announced MLB Draft Combine, which will take place from June 20-28, and the PDP League, which serves as the primary identification event for the USA Baseball 18U National Team and is scheduled to take place from July 22-August 1. Both events will be hosted at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina.
