Summertime is usually associated with a few things: the heat, barbeques and baseball.
Southern Miss is familiar with the 1st and 3rd options as they hosted their annual Summer Showcase for high school baseball players in the scorching heat at Pete Taylor Park.
Talent from all around the region and as far away as California came to the Pine Belt to show off what they can do on a baseball diamond in front of several college programs and even some pro scouts.
The showcase is a key recruiting tool for Southern Miss during the summer months by inviting players they feel can contribute to the program's success.
Recruiting coordinator and assistant coach Chad Caillet led drills throughout the afternoon and spoke about how important an event like this is for the black and gold.
"Summer months are definitely the primetime recruiting months. It gives these kids an opportunity to get around us to show them some skills, but most importantly we see their skill set," said Caillet.
"We get to see the pitchers throw live bullpens and the position players from the defensive side and definitely the offensive side and at the same time give them some pointers and some things that they can work on for the future."
