Over the New Year Holiday, Baseball players of all ages arrived at Marlins Park in Miami to compete in one of the best amateur baseball events of all time - The International Power Showcase! Connecticut School of Broadcasting students (from our Miami and North Palm Beach campuses) were honored to capture all the action live, in an experience CSB South Florida Campus Coordinator, Erica Lynn, believes is priceless! "International Power Showcase is a wonderful event for international and local athletes to showcase their skills in front of MLB and College Scouts and it is a great opportunity for our students and Grads to utilize the hands-on training they received at CSB and get in (and literally on) the field training. Graduates and current students got an experience and resume builder of a lifetime by providing Camera Operation, Play-by-play, Master Control Operation and highlight reel production in a major league ball park."
Officials at International Power Showcase say that approximately 39% of the athletes participating, go on to play baseball professionally and 100% will go on to play College Baseball. This experience also helps the stats for Connecticut School of Broadcasting-South Florida (Miami and North Palm Beach) students looking to score a career both behind and in-front of the camera. Almost every student/grad worked 3 or 4 positions and some came back multiple days so they could do it all. Click Here to see photos of CSB in action!
