Welcome to the 2023 Baseball Photo Shoot Registration with Breakdown Sports Media!

You have been invited to the 9th annual Breakdown Sports Media baseball photo shoots. You are among a select group of players from all over Minnesota, representing different geographic areas and grades who have been selected for this honor.  

Please fill out the registration form and select your preferred date/location for the photo shoot ASAP. You also may purchase a 2023 Breakdown baseball preview book at a reduced cost of just $69.99 for softcover or $89.99 for hardcover (which also includes a 2023-24 Breakdown baseball calendar). It's also just $64.99 (softcover) or $84.99 (hardcover) for each additional book -- perhaps grandparents or relatives would also like one. Last year’s book nearly sold out, so get yours early! 

AGAIN THIS YEAR: We're offering a digital version of our books! Almost a month before the hard copy editions are shipped,  you could receive the digital version of all the same information! It's cheaper than the softcover book ($59.99) or can be added on to a regular book order for just $19.99.

This registration session will allow you to sign consents, complete contact information and submit payment, as well as fill out the Q and A profile form.  To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover or PayPal account information available.  Following the completion of this registration, you will see a charge on your account from REG.NGIN.COM.

How were you selected? The Breakdown has a panel that consists of members all across Minnesota. At the conclusion of the season, our staff submits its picks of players worthy to be considered among the best in the state and from that list, a group of finalists is selected for this honor. We take into account recommendations from coaches, past season honors and statistics, offseason work, etc.

How does it work?  In order to accommodate a large group of top players (and to keep in line with COVID-19 recommendations), we have spread all our photo shoots out over a multiple-hour period, with 5-minute time frames for photos.

•   Please bring your jersey, glove, bat, and a baseball
•   professional studio photographers are present
•   individual photos will be taken (group and combination photos will be taken if social distancing restrictions are eased and/or if the participants agree to have them taken).
•  individual information, including a biography and Q and A form, will be used in the Breakdown book
•   once you arrive, the photo shoot should be completed within 15 minutes

IMPORTANT! COVID-19 LIMITATIONS

Please register ONLINE ahead of time as we will have 5-minute windows set up for each player. Walk-ins are discouraged...please complete your registration ahead of time.

  1. We're going to build in 5-minute time windows for the players to register (just one per time frame if one photographer, but up to three per time frame if three photographers) and then close the time frame down when full, as well as building about 10 minutes of down time each hour to get walk-ins through (and their own separate line, as we're trying to discourage walk-ups). 
  2. there will be hand sanitizer on site for those who need them.
  3. please bring everything you need for your photo (jersey, glove, bat, ball, etc.) as we are discouraging the use of common equipment on hand to use.
  4. if possible, we'll have a separate entry and exit door for the shoots (labeled on each door).
  5. lastly, we encourage parents and other guests to remain outside in the parking area and just drop the student-athletes off at the door, if possible. Pre-registered players should be in-and-out of the shoot in 15 minutes or less.

Can't make it to any of the dates? You can still be in the book and receive the same special deal! Just fill out the registration form without selecting a date, complete the Q and A form and email a photo to tim@breakdownsportsusa.com
