CSI hosts all-star baseball players

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Dozens of the best baseball players in Idaho converged at CSI Sunday afternoon.

Saturday marked the annual Idaho Baseball Showcase Invite. The College of Southern Idaho plays host to high school athletes from freshmen to recent graduates.

The Idaho Baseball Coaches Association tracks all the invitees and cross checks them with college coaches. Scouts from even division one schools attend.

Baseball coaches nominate their own players and usually between 60 and 65 are invited.

President of the Idaho Baseball Coaches Association Justin Schneidt explained, "right now we have seven Division One's, we have College of Southern Idaho, College of Idaho, Northwest Nazarene is supposed to be here. We put the event on, whoever can make it, makes it. It's for the kids, just to get them out in front of schools they might not have a chance to be recruited by and give the state of Idaho a product we're really proud of."

Twin Falls sophomore left handed pitcher/outfielder Carson Walters said, "just try to be yourself and play loose, try not to let the moment get too big, play your best and get good exposure."

"I know a lot of the dudes out here, makes it a lot more fun, playing the guys you see throughout the season. All in all, it's a good time," Vallivue junior catcher Cobe Lehman explained.
