Day one of the Japanese Professional Baseball League Showcase was held Saturday afternoon at Chukchansi Park.

And handfuls of former local stars were on hand to show off their abilities in front of Japanese scouts, as well as scouts from the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox. Around 72 players were on the invitation only list, most with college experience, and some who have played professionally.

The top players from Saturday's showcase will be back at Chukchansi Park Sunday afternoon for a scrimmage so the scouts can see them in game situations.
