The Hoover Met will become the “mecca of amateur baseball” the next three years as a Major League Baseball talent scouting event comes to town.

East Coast Pro Baseball announced at a press conference today that it will host the first of three baseball scouting events Aug. 1-4, 2018, at the Met, the former home of the minor league Birmingham Barons.

The top 150 to 155 East Coast high school baseball players will be selected by Major League Baseball scouts for this event. Those players will have a chance to play in front of all MLB scouts, coaches, agents, family and friends. East Coast Pro Baseball is not open to the public, but discussions are underway to perhaps open the gates for the public to attend the final game of each day.“The decision to move our event to Hoover was a no-brainer after we saw the major-league-style facility,” said John Castleberry, Northeast supervisor of the San Francisco Giants and a representative of East Coast Pro Baseball. “We are looking forward to having the top players from the Eastern Seaboard come to be evaluated and perform (and) enjoy the Southern hospitality of Hoover this summer.”
