Vidalia High Schhol Indian and Notre Dame commit Caden Spivey is participating in this week's East Coast Pro Showcase at the Hoover Met Complex in Hoover, Alabama. Created in 1995, the invitation-only event is 'designed to evaluate and educate prospective players and parents in order to attain their goal of an opportunity to play professional baseball.'

The Showcase is a nonprofit event run by MLB Scouts, and according to their website, 'The ultimate purpose of this Showcase is to provide a venue for the premier youth baseball players across the Eastern United States to compete in a professional environment. It also allows evaluation opportunities for scouts from every Major League Baseball organization.'

Annually, between 80 and 110 players from the event are selected in the MLB Rule 4 Draft. ' We hope these games and seminars will allow professional scouts and all MLB personnel to assist the players from this event to fully understand what professional baseball can offer at its highest level.'

Spivey, who finished his junior year at 7-2 on the mound with a .898 ERA and 80 strikeouts in 62 innings, said he was excited and honored to have the opportunity, 'I'm honored to be given the opportunity to showcase my talents at such a prestigious event. It's a great opportunity to get to know the scouts on a personal level and hang out with and compete against the top high school players on the East Coast. ECP has an incredible history, and I can't wait to get out there and get to it.'
