MLB PROPOSED DRAFT CHANGES
An Honest, Realistic, and Individual Approach to the Baseball Recruiting Process
Success in College and Professional Baseball Recruitment and Placement
Learn how to get better and get good enough to get signed!!!
For years we have worked at tryouts for both affiliate and independent baseball. After one of the pro tryouts, I had an epiphany when a player approached me and asked:
Why didn’t I get signed?”
Suddenly I realized that most players DON’T KNOW … anything about the process!
Suddenly I realized: The players DON'T KNOW!!!
Why Didn't I get signed?
What a great question!!! What a great concept!!! What a simple thing to ask for.
It's called FEEDBACK!!!
How can anyone ... trying to succeed at ANYTHING succeed without the answer to that type of question?
You're in the first grade and you get a C on your math test. You want to get an A so you ask the teacher "What did I do wrong? How can I fix this? How can I get better?"
The teacher shrugs her shoulders and says, "That's my secret. You'll have to figure it out on your own."
The professional players don’t know why they didn’t get signed. After the workout or tryout you all pack your gear, leave the field, get in your cars, and move on to the next tryout. You take nothing away from the tryout (okay ... maybe they gave you a tee shirt) but NOTHING about … how to get better; how to get signed. And you paid money ... for the privilege of NOT knowing HOW TO GET BETTER ... BEFORE you go to the next tryout!!!
We will give you the information to help you improve your game. Keep in mind what a 5 - 10% improvement means.
A 5 - 10% improvement could mean a 30 point increase in your batting average, an explosive five step to the ball; giving you an extra 3 - 6 feet in range; a 6.6 60 yard dash rather than 6.6; 5 mph on your fastball. The possibilities are endless and enormously impactful.
PLACEMENT / PLAYING OPPORTUNITIES
If all this goes down there may be fewer opportunities than ever before.
We are NOT agents but we WILL work to advise and help connect you to an appropriate situation where you can get signed either in affiliate or independent baseball or continue to develop and play and get in front of people in organizations who can help you.
We want to help ...and we know that we CAN help.
We have placed over 60 players in college or professional baseball. We are NOT agents but we can help. We have a staff of professionals including major league scouts ready to help you get your game to the next level in any and every way and even get you placed on teams. We have connections in both affiliate and independent baseball and with organizations that can put you in front of appropriate teams and their decision makers.
