Diamond Prospects announces our 17th Annual, Lon Joyce Pro Day on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at Columbia’s River Bluff High School for 2023, 2024, & 2025 graduates. This showcase is designed for the player who possesses the tools/abilities to play at the professional level following high school or at some point in their career, which is why Pro Day is a very strict, invite only event.

TheDiamondProspects.com provides the #1 coverage of high school baseball in the state of South Carolina. We scout more prep baseball than anyone and write articles about the teams and players we see. We also conduct interviews with the top players across the Palmetto State, past and present. Our goal is to ensure that no player in our state gets overlooked!

Diamond Prospects quickly became highly-regarded among college coaches and professional scouts in the Tri-State area, many staff’s and scouts across the Carolina’s have told us that checking the site’s contents have become part of their morning routine!
