Testimonials-2012 (7th)

ca-denson-award-2012 To Brian, Lynn and the whole Power Showcase family. I just wanted to thank everyone involved with the Power-Showcase event for one of the best experiences I have had in baseball. From meeting so many great players and so many outstanding coaches and scouts and so many great baseball teams. Most of all making friends from all around the world and having an amazing amount of fun. All together, the competition was unbelievable, and to be able to compete on such a high level with so many great baseball players was really awesome. Not only did I learn about the game of baseball, I learned how to also become a better person on and off the baseball field, as well as how to conduct myself as a young man. The experience of going to the welcome dinner and receiving my jersey, to picking a child with special needs and making his day and putting a smile on his face is surreal. Having the privilege of playing on the new Miami Marlins Stadium was magnificent. I had to pinch myself to make sure that I wasn’t in a dream. It was truly a thrill and a shock to myself when I hit the score board three times and breaking the record, then coming back the next day and winning the whole thing. I still feel like I’m in a dream and I don’t want to wake up. I’ve been playing baseball since I was 3 years old and my goal is to one day play in the major leagues. Power-Showcase gave me more of a push to always work 110 percent in practice and in the games. The Power-Showcase is an experience I will never forget for the rest of my life. I just want to say God is good, and I have truly been blessed. To all of the future Power-Showcase players, never give up on yourself and your dream. Baseball is a game of ups and downs. Always give it your best and believe that you can achieve whatever you put your mind to. Hard work really does pay off, God Bless.Thank you again Power-showcase,California DAVID DENSON – 7TH ANNUAL POWER SHOWCASE WORLD CHAMPION
can-naylor-award-underclass-champ-2012 Thanks again Brian and staff for this fantastic opportunity of pressure packed, energized event, the 2012 POWER SHOWCASE provided. From the moment I received the invite to each email sent keeping things on track (great job Lynn) added to my excitement. This is such a big-time event it should be broadcasted on ESPN. It was truly a fantastic experience that allowed me to make so many new friends from different parts of the world, I will always remember. What a RUSH it was performing on this big stage! Having this event in Marlins Park was awesome and everyone was treated first class!! I’m very proud I could represent my home run that helps partner Chase Galea, not only my 1st home run but all my home runs were dedicated to him and his daily battles. Big congrats to my fellow Canucks (4 out 10) in the finals – not too bad at all. Also a BIG shout out to my parents Jenice & Chris as well coaches Sean Travers and Dan Bleiwas without the support of these important people in my life none of this would be possible…..Canada JOSH “NAYLZ” NAYLOR * 2012 POWER SHOWCASE Under-Classman Champion & Finals Runner-up.
After attending the Power Showcase consecutive years, it is safe to say that this is an event that players will remember forever. Brian Domenico and his staff do an unenviable job on and off the field. Power Showcase makes every aspect of the trip enjoyable. Through this event, I have made friends that will last a lifetime. The participants in the Power Showcase are the rising stars in the world of baseball and will leave their legacy for all to see.Florida CORBIN WEEKS  2012 ALUMNI SELECT CHAMPION
5 STARS!!! You outdid yourselves this time. The 2012 International Power Showcase was the BEST Baseball Showcase event, EVER!!! So lucky to have been given an invitation to compete in the Inaugural 2012 ALUMNI Power Showcase. The 1st time at Chase Field for me 2 years ago at the Power Showcase was an “Over The Top” experience for me, my family and my friends. This time at Marlins Stadium it was EVEN BETTER! Having 3 former Power Showcase Champions return for the Alumni event made it a “Hall of Fame” atmosphere.I loved the opportunity to return and DOUBLE my HR production from 2 years ago. With being just 1 swing away from standing in the winners circle, I was more than “pumped” swinging for the fences in 1 of the most ELECTRIC new major league baseball stadiums. The ALUMNI Event was a real HOMERUN, (forgive the pun). The icing on the cake was to come home and watch the highlights on the MLB NETWORK. It only makes sense the BEST Baseball event on the planet attracts the BEST power hitters and ballplayers in the world.My sincere thank you to Mr. Brian Domenico. His dream of creating an unmatched worldwide baseball event that fulfills the dreams of so many, (the athletes, the families and friends) has come true.The BEST part of it all and I can speak from my own experience competing in the 2010 Power Showcase at Chase Field is the MEMORIES get even better as time goes on.A very special thank you to the POWER SHOWCASE team from Lynn and all around (the announcers, the camera crew, the video crew, etc.) who remind us how GREAT baseball is by bringing their “A” game to an experience and an event that I will tell my grandchildren about. Florida – JUSTIN BARD 2012 ALUMNI SELECT
 co-simon-award-7th The Power Showcase was a very humbling and exciting experience. The thought of playing and being on a Major League Baseball field was very cool. The first day at Homestead was overwhelming as I did not hit one ball off of the machine. As I looked around at the talented competition I didn’t know what I was up against before that. It was very cool to see so many different players from so many different places with the common goal- to win the Power Showcase. I especially enjoyed all of the equipment and uniforms that we received. Also, the thought of giving back to someone less gifted to you really opened my eyes. I am definitely looking forward to competing again next year. Thanks for the great experience.Colorado KYLE SIMON – 7TH Annual POWER SHOWCASE
co-simon-swing-2012-7th This was by far the most exciting baseball event Kyle and our family have ever attended! The setting, the professionalism, the people and “the goodies” were above and beyond what we expected. Going in, Kyle was worried about hitting just one HR and because of the competition decided he needed to step up his game and finish third in the finals. He hasn’t stopped talking about it, and when he does it’s with genuine excitement. I hope it will open a few doors for him in the coming year.   So thank you to you and your staff for all their hard work – it was appreciated and gave us memories for years to come. Looking forward to seeing you again in a “few” months for the 2013 version!  Mark, Merrellee, Marcus SimonColorado – KYLE SIMON – 7TH Annual POWER SHOWCASE
CA-TELLEZ-9397-BAT-7TH Thank you Brian and Lynn for inviting Rowdy back to the Power Showcase.  This year, the entire family accompanied Rowdy to Miami and we all had a wonderful time.  As with 2011’s showcase, Rowdy really enjoyed the opportunity to play ball with players from around the world and experience playing baseball in a major league ballpark.  Also, thank you for recognizing Rowdy with the Spirit of Babe Ruth Award.  This is truly an honor, particularly with the power hitters participating this year.  We wish you the best of luck in the years to come; you offer an amazing four days and create life long memories for the players and their families.  Take care, Lori, Greg, Rowdy and Amy Tellez Califonia – Rowdy Tellez

The event was well organized from start to finish and we were particularly impressed by the attention to detail and by how well he was treated by all of your staff.

I want to take a minute to thank you for including me in the 7th Annual Power Showcase this past week. I just returned home to Philadelphia and had time on the plane to think about all that I accomplished over the week and about the entire experience. I have had many great baseball experiences and have had the opportunity to play with a lot of great players, but I have to say this was probably the best baseball experience I have had.I wish I could point to one thing that made it great, but it was the overall vibe that made it so great. So many great and talented players in a great environment and inside the coolest stadium in the United States. I was pleased with my performance and was happy to have had my name atop the leaderboard at the Power Showcase for a brief time. I am hoping to return next year and can promise you that I am going to hit at least 5 homeruns in the preliminary round!!Watching my dad spend so much time doing all of the things he does with baseball makes me appreciate all of the hard work that people like you do so that players like me and the others can benefit so much. I can’t wait to see the video and pictures. All of my friends and teammates were following along via Twitter and with the live stream and I can’t wait to get to the New Years party tonight to show them all my photos and tell them all the great stories.Thank you very much and I hope that you and your family have a great 2013 and I hope to see you again next year.Pennsylvania – JAKE ROSENBERG – 7TH Annual POWER SHOWCASE
