1) What is the Down South Bus Tour?
- The Down South Bus Tour is a four day trip, with the top priority of giving every student athlete on the bus a first hand take on the college experience. Our mission at BBA is to provide each player the opportunity to showcase their abilities, on the field and off the field, in front of the top programs throughout the states of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina, as well as the District of Columbia. Our Down South Bus Tour offers an indoor Pro Style Showcase Workout w/ recorded metrics in Reston, VA on August 11th, as well as a Simulated Game on August 14th at the University of Richmond in front of 20+ college coaches….ALL ON ONE FIELD! SO EVERY COACH SEES EVERY PLAYER PERFORM.
- We also include an instructional aspect at our two workouts along the way, by giving the players the opportunity to work with 20+ college coaches on hitting, defense, pitching, base running and other aspects of the game.
- The trip offers a personal and in-depth look into several top college baseball programs, which is not provided at a typical showcase event.
- 1500+ College Coaches will receive each player’s digital report card consisting of video footage from our BBA Livestream Channel, a HitTrax Report, a Pitching Rapsodo Report, a Blast Motion Report, other miscellaneous metrics, player profile info and more!
