“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.
