Re: Georgia Dugout Club Elite 80 Showcases 


Just wondering.  What is all the profit from these shocases used for?  I imagine at least a few hundred will show up.  At $105.00 per player that a fairly large amount of money.  Who gets that money?

Does someone own the GADC?  I dont understand its purpose I guess.  I could see a group that assembled the best players in Georgia for a showcase but these will only be the best players with $105.00 to spend.  You cant be Elite without money I guess.

It goes towards awards that each classification recieves for the previous year (ie player of the year/coach of the year for each classification plus coaches milestons (#wins)), it also goes towards providing coaches in the state the opportunity to attend the coaches clinic held in the spring along with the baseball clinic.  The college coaches are paid for their time so that is where the money goes.

Would have been better served throwing $105 in a fire. Host teams had enough kids make the Elite 80 team to have their own team, regardless of talent. Kennesaw Mountain led the pack with 5. If this is the case they should win state hands down.
