What's Happening in MVP Baseball School!

TRYOUTS FOR MVP TERPS 2024 - 2025 Teams will be held on Sunday, April 28th. The season will run from September 2024 through the summer of 2025. There is no cost for the tryout. Please see the details below and register for the age-appropriate tryout:

Please note that if you cannot make the scheduled time for your age group you can attend the other time slot. Makeup tryouts for those who absolutely cannot make it Sunday will be held Monday, April 29th, at the MVP facility from 8pm to 9pm - this should be a last resort as there is limited space at MVP.

Please let us know if you plan to attend a different time or the makeup tryout so we can plan accordingly.

In the event of rain, we will move indoors to the MVP facility.

MVP has partnered with Play In School as their player marketing platform for MVP Dawgs players in the class of ‘25, ‘26 and ‘27

The Play In School software platform makes life easy for prospects and their coaches by making the communication process more efficient than ever. Every detail of the Play In School platform was built specifically with college coaches to provide them with the information they are looking for in recruits.

This platform covers all the necessary recruiting information that a player will need, plus links to player tweets and videos. Also included in your subscription is a searchable database for college baseball programs across the country and direct access to Rich Prado the founder of Play In School.  The cost for the MVP player to have access to this incredible recruiting platform is $95 per year. When Coach Pudge is discussing MVP players with college coaches this is the platform that he will use when they are looking for more information about the player.

Please use the link below to register for your Play In School MVP account.
