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 also have a Junior Level XENO with 6 teams.

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.

Application deadline has been extended to April 1. Entry fee per player is $125.00 for returning XENO players and 2014 NSA tournament MVPs (if received by March 1, 2015) and $150.00 for new applicants. Payment will be due 2 weeks after player application has been reviewed and acceptance is obtained.
