How to Make Pro Baseball Scouts Notice You

An Insider's Guide to Big League Scouting

“I had no idea I was being scouted when Al Goldis saw me playing amateur ball in New York’s Central Park League. If I had this book then, it would have given me further insight into the standards required for breaking into the big leagues.”—Devon White, 3-Time Major League All-Star

The purpose of this book is twofold: one, to give ballplayers an inside look at just what scouts are really looking for in their search for professional ballplayers; and two, to help them market and sell themselves so that scouts will know they exist and see them put their best skills on display. Chapters include:

  • How scouts find talent
  • How scouts rate prospects
  • The fundamental ingredients of a Major League ballplayer
  • Marketing yourself: Hits and myths
  • What You need to know about tryout camps
  • And much more!

This book has been written with the intent of helping ballplayers keep their dreams of playing pro ball alive and flourishing. All any ballplayer wants is a shot at playing pro ball, and by reading this book, they will be that much closer to having their dreams come true.
