"Tim is a first class guy that runs a first class showcase. Tim's recommendations are always spot on and the talent that he brings in every year never disappoints."
-Brian Brewer

"The question...Which Showcase should I have my son attend can only be answered with another and most important question. Who will he showcase his skill in front of, are they scouts and recruiting coordinators looking for top players? Tim Martins reputation in the baseball community and for bringing in top talent attracts the scouts your son needs to be seen by. It also attracts the type of players that your son can compete with so they can evaluate their own skills in order to keep challenging them self to be the best player they can become. The coaches on the field are all top notch baseball guys and help bring out the best in your son.

About Tim Martin. I asked my son after the first day, how did he feel it was going? He replied “Great! Coach Martin makes me feel like I have known him my whole life and we just met today.” Not did you see that play I made or hit I hit or what he ran for his 60 time. Why do I feel that is important enough to say? Because baseball is a game that you need to play loose and confident. Being uptight and nervous only causes doubt and mistakes. If Tim can make the boys feel the way he made my son feel, it will benefit everyone there. The boys will play better and the scouts will see them at their best and the rest will fall into place.

If you have the opportunity to attend the Tim Martin Showcase, don’t let it pass you by. DO IT."

"I attended Tim's showcase for the first time this past year. From a college coach's standpoint- it was awesome- well organized, an abundance of great players, a great facility to both watch and play baseball, which is probably why so many college coaches and professional scouts attend it. It will be the first event to set in stone next fall when I make our recruiting calendar."
-Larry Day, Ohio University

"We attended Tim Martin's Ohio showcase in 2013. I want to say this was NOT your standard event! Tim Martin is loaded with baseball knowledge, he's very personable, polite, and approachable to players, parents and coaches. Tim Martin's eye for talent on the field is outstanding, as he notices each players skills during games, and on field events during the course of the showcase. This was the best showcase we have ever been involved with!"
-John Borkovich (St.Clair County Community College Assist Baseball Coach Strength/Conditioning (former))

"Coach Martin's showcase is 2nd to none. If you are a player, this is the event gives you the necessary exposure. As a coach/scout, the players we need to see are all in 1 spot. I highly recommend for all involved to add this to your calendar. Tim Martin has created a MUST attend event."
-Ted Tom (Head Baseball Coach-Shawnee State University)

"Superior person running an elite showcase... It's a no brainer! Coach Tim Martin is a person that I am grateful to have met for many reasons. He does an outstanding job with evaluating talent and giving young men an opportunity to showcase their ability."
-Josh Newman (Marshall University)

"Last year I had a chance to attend Tim Martin's showcase in Chillicothe Ohio. In my 58 years with the Cincinnati Reds as a player, scout, scouting supervisor, and senior special assistant to the Reds general manager, I had a chance to work with young baseball players. Tim Martin shows great passion for the game as well as special attention to all players who attend his showcase.

As a scout, you can see more in a Tim Martin showcase than in a game. As a baseball scout, Tim has great passion for the game, great work ethic, good judgement and good wisdom on player development.

As a person, Tim Martin is a class individual that I have known for many years. If you want to improve your skills, then be sure to attend a Tim Martin showcase."
-Gene Bennett (Retired Scout Cincinnati Reds)

"If you're looking to maximize the dollars you spend and to get your son exposed, Tim's Martin showcase is one of the best in the area. Not only will you perform in front of countless professional scouts and college coaches but you will also get the best experience and most bang for your buck.. Being a professional scout it's a must for me in order to see so many kids from all over the Mid Atlantic region. You won't find a man any better than Tim, and he and his staff do a tremendous job. Don't let this opportunity to pass you by."
-Tim Adkins (Professional Scout, Chicago Cubs)

"I sent my son to Tim Martin's showcase and I could not have been happier. It was big league all the way. The coaches who ran it were efficient, thorough and gave the kids a chance to show their skills. Plenty of pro scouts and college coaches, too.

I've been to many showcases and this is one that serious players should consider."
-CHRIS WELSH (FOX SPORTS OHIO)

"What a cool showcase Tim puts on! Tim takes a sincere interest in each player. The atmosphere and location is classic baseball @ the Paints Stadium. Players learn from the experience of Tim and the other college and pro scouts that he draws. This was a great opportunity for learning and exposure for my son Roman. Well worth his time and investment. If you get an invite, capitalize on it and go!"
-Rick Millem

"I have had the pleasure of working with Tim Martin for the past couple years and you will not find a more personable, sincere, kind, and respected person in the Ohio Valley Baseball community. His showcases are professionally run where your child will be treated as a "Name", not just a "Number". Quickly becoming one of the top showcases in the region for Professional Scouts and College Recruiters alike."
-John Pyle (Area Scout-Ohio Valley)

"The very straight-forward concept of Tim Martin's showcase is a testimony to why youngsters should want to participate.  Having talented young players able to be seen in comparison to each other and seen by a variety of scouts and college coaches is so healthy.  It benefits the player, the parents, the scouts the coaches all at the same time. When you add the instruction into the equation, the sensibility of why to attend -- is complete.  Tim, himself, has gained many admirers over the years because of what the showcase does and for the first-class way in which he repeatedly accomplishes these goals."

-Branch B. Rickey


"I'm not a great writer, but I am a great judge of character and what I witnessed this past weekend was just that! Tim Martin and his staff are the genuine articles! Not only was this the most efficiently structured showcase, with smooth transitions from station to station these guys were able to do it in a laid back sort of way. They truly kept the kids comfortable, and at ease, and listening to the encouragement they offered to them took a lot of stress off the kids and me as a parent. Can't say enough about this experience! If you get the opportunity to attend a Tim Martin showcase, I highly recommend you take the drive no matter how far away you have to travel because it's a life experience worth any distance traveled!"
-Fred Raikes
