XENO Louisville Slugger Talent Search is open to 2015 (Uncommitted) thru 2018 high school graduates desiring to compete at the collegiate level. Our goal is to have 16 teams in the Senior High age group and then have a Junior Level XENO if space allows. We will start taking applications for 2019-2021 on March 1st, 2015.
Players will be selected based on their application and placed on a team for the showcase. The Senior High Group will consist of 16 teams of eleven players (7 position players, 2 pitchers, 2 catchers) and a collegiate player will coach each team. As applications are received the following information will be listed on a: who’s playing list: Last Name, Initial, Grad year, Primary and secondary position). Teams will be selected based on Primary position only and will be limited to 11 players. Players will get minimal innings at their secondary positions. Players, whose primary position is full, may opt to play in the XENO at their secondary position.
All teams will play five games. MVP’s will be selected upon collaboration of coaches after each game and given a XENO MVP T-shirt after each game. An All-tournament team will also be selected. Players selected to the All Tournament team will be announced prior to final games and presented a plaque.
Applications are due by February 1, 2015. Selected players will be notified by Feb 28, 2015 and payment is due by March 31, 2015. Entry fee per player is $125.00 for returning XENO players (if received by March 1, 2015) and $150.00 for new applicants.
Applications are available at all NSA showcase tournaments and on the website.
