Wofford Coach Jason Burke on our Academic Showcase: "The East Cobb Patriots Academic Showcase has been a great place for us to see some of the best academic players that are looking for both a high quality baseball experience and academic setting. We have been fortunate enough to recruit and sign players from this event the previous five years, and put it as a must for us to attend on a yearly basis."
