Spring Training Press Release
Major format change set to take place for the 29th annual
MountainWest Baseball’s Spring Training.
Why change one of America’s largest and most successful baseball events?
For the past 28 years MountainWest Baseball has drawn up to 735 players each President’s Day weekend to Mesquite, Nevada in order to prepare them for the upcoming season. Thousands of players who have attended this event have gone on to play college baseball and hundreds have played professionally. In recent years, the NCAA has changed their starting date which now conflicts with our event and has made it difficult for the professional scouts and college coaches to attend. Last year several professional area scouts approached us with the idea of changing our Spring Training event to the weekend before President’s Day.
Starting in 2019, Spring Training will be broken up into two weekends.
Session #1 will be held Feb 8th – 10th and will be exclusively run by the Four Corners Scouts. This event will be offered to player’s 9th – 12th grade. This is an exposure/instructional event.
Session #2 will be held Present’s Day weekend, Feb 15 – 18 and will be a combination USSSA tournament (14U) / instructional event. High school programs can continue to prepare their high school players for the up-coming season, while youth programs can participate in a competitive tournament and also receive instruction.
Individual Players that have registered for the Winter Showcase will receive a $50 discount. You must sign up for Winter Showcase 1st to receive your discount. Once you have purchased the Winter Showcase, you will be given the option to choose the discounted price.
Individual players who would like to attend both sessions will receive a $100.00 discount.
This means that those individuals that sign up for both Spring Training session and the Winter Showcase will

Winter Showcase / Camp
The 9th annual MountainWest Baseball Winter showcase / Camp will be held January 22nd & 23rd at the Baseball Academy in South Jordan, Utah.
This event will not only serve as a great college and professional showcase, this year, we will also use this event to identify and choose players for all our showcase events in 2017; including: Sophomore, Junior and Senior Fall Classics, USA Baseball Events, Perfect Game Events, Northwest Championships etc…
Grades 6th – 8th will be held on Tuesday January 22nd and grades 9th – 12th will be held on January 23rd. Players will be given workout times five days before the event.
All participants must sign-up online. We will not take any walk-in registrations. You will need to go to www.mountainwestbaseball.com and register for this event. You will then need to fill out a player profile located on the same website. We will use the information you supply to make a showcase program for the scouts and coaches to use to evaluate each player. This is extremely important. Some of the players will have signed with a college prior to this event, but we still encourage you to attend this showcase for the professional scout exposure. It is an excellent opportunity for each of you to showcase your skills in front of professional scouts and college recruiters.
