It’s TRUE–If you play well, the Scouts will FIND you. When I was a young man playing for a California “Semi-pro” team. I had just finished reading Ted Williams’ book–The Science of Hitting. The next 5-6 games I batted 17 for 21.( GREAT BOOK for hitting instruction, by the way.) Anyway, the scouts found ME; Cleveland, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, California Angels & Oakland A’s.. I mean these guys came out of the woodwork! I was going to Long Beach State University at the time, so the first thing they asked me was where I went to school. I found out later that they did this so they could come see me play & assess my abilities against other college competition. I played one season at Long Beach, but playing against teams like USC and UCLA (exhibition games) also helped bring out the Scouts.
PRO5 Academy is off to a great start. Along with day to day instruction from some of the best instructors in the area, PRO5 players Fall season included games against other academies in Florida and Alabama, Junior Colleges and the Czech National team at great facilities including the University of Florida, Duke, USA Baseball, Ting Stadium and the Montgomery Biscuits Stadium. More than 25 college coaches and MLB scouts attended games and workouts. In addtion PRO5 players received instruction from several guest coaches: Nick Gorneault (Angels Cross-checker), Jerry Sands (MLB player), JD Closser (Yankees catching instructor), Tim Edge (Former Pirates), and more. We were also privileged to volunteer at the Cary Miracle League.
