DP Events

In 2024, Diamond Prospects will host five events again. On January 28, the new year cranked up at River Bluff as we conducted our 18th Annual Pro Day, kicking off the new baseball season just before spring practice begins! This summer DP will host an ‘open showcase‘ for 2025-2027 graduates in June at River Bluff High School, and the 17th Annual ‘invite-only’ Palmetto Games will return to USC’s Founders Park on August 17-18. We will also have an Un-signed senior and Underclassman ‘open showcase’ on November 2-3. We will duplicate all of these events in 2025. General FYI: Seventeen years ago, Diamond Prospects introduced the Palmetto Games to the state of South Carolina. Over 100 of the top players participate each year and 100+ college coaches/pro scouts are typically in attendance each August… Also, all but two of 201 SC prep players that were selected in the 2007-2023 Major League Draft had previously participated in a DP event.
