The Player Development League Powered by Five Tool

The Player Development League is an exclusive fall league for top tier high school players that will provide an opportunity for the best to compete against the best every weekend.

By participating, players will better themselves in order to play immediately in college or in professional baseball. The PDL will develop players with in-game instruction from college coaches and top summer coaches from various organizations throughout the metroplex. Players will receive instruction in all aspects of the game from these coaches while playing in front of college coaches and professional scouts. The value of this league lies in the fact that players will face five weeks of competition from other top college prospects in the metroplex. It’s time to have the best face the best each week and make everyone better!

The PDL showcase/tryout will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020 and Sunday, August 2, 2020.

Choose the day that is best for you.


Five Tool will be hosting our PDL showcase/tryout on Saturday, August 1, 2020 and Sunday, August 2, 2020 at The Z-Plex Texas Sports Village in Melissa, TX

You will choose either day to attend the showcase/tryout. (You will not attend both days, only one day to showcase).

Each day will have a maximum number of participants. Sign up early to get a spot on your preferred day.

The PDL will expose your son’s talent to college coaches and professional scouts. Each player who attends the showcase will receive an in depth evaluation and feedback written by college coaches and pro scouts. These coaches will be on the field evaluating players while they go through their workouts.

If you currently have a fall baseball team, and only want to attend the showcase without joining the PDL, you are welcome to attend for exposure.

The tryout does NOT guarantee a spot in the PDL. The PDL will choose the best players for the teams so that they will compete against players of equivalent skill level.
