Testimonials – 2008 (2nd)


Zach Helgeson – VA – 2nd Annual World Champion

Thank you. Simply put, Power Showcase has been one of the best experiences of my career to date. I could not have even imagined how fantastic an experience it would be until actually being given the opportunity to live it, which I am extremely grateful for. That’s the true beauty of Power Showcase: It levels the playing field and gives everyone the chance to win. I wasn’t a highly touted prospect going in to Power Showcase in comparison to some of the other players that were competing, but I left Power Showcase a champion. It’s amazing to see how far Power Showcase has come in the short time since I competed. I was given the opportunity to speak at the dinner banquet the following year, and I was astonished at the tremendous improvements that had been made. Every year it seems to get bigger and bigger and watching it grow has truly been fun. Regardless of how big Power Showcase gets, there is one thing that will always be true: I will always feel like I was part of something special, as will every other player that is lucky enough to get the chance to compete. That’s due to Brian Domenico, who is without question one of the best guys in the business. On a personal and professional level he is driven to success and Power Showcase is a direct reflection of that. He is committed to the players that participate and I know from personal experience that he has a genuine interest in their success and well-being. Thanks so much Brian. I’m proud to be able to say that I was a part of the best high school baseball player event in the country: Power Showcase.Thanks Again,


Matt Conway – MI

It was an honor to be a part of it in 2008, and I was really excited to know that I haVE another opportunity to come back and participate in 2009. It was definitely an experience that I will never forget.  The other participants were great and I made a lot of new friendships that I can carry over into college.  Listening to the Granddaughter of Babe Ruth speak at the dinner the night before was something that I never thought was possible.  It’s amazing to know that I was fortunate enough to meet a relative of Babe Ruth.  Thank you for all you have done for me over the past two years and I look forward to watching the event for years to come!Thanks again,

Matt Marquis – NJ

Due to nerves during my taped interview after the finals of the “Derby”, I missed an opportunity to publicly thank you and the entire showcase staff for providing me with one of the great thrills of my young baseball career. What you folks did not only for me but for 63 other top high school ballplayers is nothing short of remarkable. While only continued hard work, luck and persistence will shape my baseball future no one can ever take away the excitement and camaraderie of participating in your great event. If ever, I can do anything to repay your kindness and vision please don’t hesitate to call on me. On behalf of my entire family and myself I hope the International Home Run Derby continues to provide thrills for high school players for many years to come.Warmest Personal Regards,
