The 2022 VBCA Showcase returned to the diamond last June after a two-year absence. Fifty underclass student-athletes displayed their skills in front of coaches from close to 20 collegiate baseball programs at all levels from throughout the Northeast.

Around 70 former Vermont high school players were represented on 2023 NCAA Division I, II and III  four-year baseball rosters, with as many as 10 on D-I rosters. Several earned all-conference honors and participated or will participate with schools advancing to the NCAA Baseball Championship. Many  of these student-athletes participated in previous VBCA events.
