Prospect Wire was founded in 2005 by Matt Bomeisl as a way to give high school baseball players a platform to promote their skills to college coaches and MLB scouts. Starting with individual showcases in South Florida for the first few years, Prospect Wire added a team tournament in 2009 (Florida State Finals), an event that is still run today as the Southeast Championships. In 2011, Prospect Wire made the decision to take their events across the country to Arizona, and brought Jeff Spelman on board to help assist with our introduction to a new set of teams. Jeff founded Team One Baseball in the early 90’s and brought a wealth of showcase experience to the table. In 2016, Prospect Wire once again made the decision to expand, adding a major event in greater Los Angeles (LA Invitational) and following that in 2017 with the addition of the San Diego Invitational. Today, after 17 years in the industry, Prospect Wire continues it’s goal of bringing a unique tournament & showcase experience to players, coaches and families around the country.
Prospect Wire experienced a large change in 2019, when Founder & President Matt Bomeisl sold the company to Kevin Davidson & DS Sports Ventures. With DS Sports came the introduction to BaseballCloud, a community focused on enhancing amateur baseball through the use of data. Similar to the Apple iCloud, BaseballCloud was designed to be a one stop shop for all analytic data capturing devices. Along with BaseballCloud, Prospect Wire is excited for the launch of the new DiamondConnect App, a platform that will unify all of DS Sports Ventures companies, and more importantly, allow Prospect Wire to franchise out to different states in a more efficient and controlled manner. The goal is to bring Prospect Wire events to over a dozen states by 2025, while continuing to host National Tournaments & Showcases through our corporate headquarters. Infusing the newest technology, along with old school scouting, Prospect Wire will continue to be an industry leader, while providing a first class experience to our customers.
Prospect Wire offers a wide variety of events, ranging from round robin team tournaments, where teams have a chance to perform without worrying about saving pitching for a playoff run. There are small, weekend events, as well as large scale national tournaments with teams coming in from multiple states. Attending a Prospect Wire event feels different than most other companies. Our customer service level is second to none, as we take multiple steps to ensure our spectators & teams enjoy their experience. Our showcases feed into larger events, such as the PW All American Games, the NextGen All Americans and the Data World Series. All our showcases, and soon our tournaments, will feature advanced analytic data capturing equipment powered by BaseballCloud.
