Competitive, Developmental, Affordable, Exposure

Diamond Prospects is proud to announce our launch of a new weekday fall league in the Upstate and Midlands during September and October of 2009. The league will provide a local and affordable option for up-and-coming baseball players looking to get in some extra work during the school week.

As always, DP will provide players with opportunities for exposure. Team rosters and schedules will be posted on the website for easy access for college coaches and scouts looking to follow players during the ‘off-season’.
