Pro Baseball Tryout Camp
July 15th - 20th, 2007
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Players attend from all over the world: USA, Japan, Australia… All Ages Welcome!
Conducted for over 10 years, the pro baseball tryout camps have seen many players obtain jobs playing baseball all over the world. Surprising to most people, opportunities in baseball are vast and as such, these camps provide players with a myriad of opportunities.
Featuring representatives from European, Independent, and Major League teams, these camps, held over the course of a week, allow for players to receive an extensive evaluation. Contrary to standard tryouts that last only a few hours and see players dismissed after making a few throws and being timed running, the pro baseball tryout camps will be held over a 5 day period and have players being evaluated both in workouts along with DAILY game action.
The daily routine will consist of morning workouts where all players will be assessed relative to their position, by taking part in infield and outfield drills. In addition, all positional players will be timed running the 60 yd. dash twice during the course of the week. Pitchers will be asked to throw in games 2-3 times during the week. The scouts will fill out a PERSONAL evaluation card for EACH player and give them the opportunity to discuss their performance at the end of the week.
Our scouts are strong believers in games being an excellent evaluative tool. Hitters will face LIVE PITCHING and as a result of the length of the tryout will receive plenty of at bats to demonstrate their abilities. Consequently, pitchers will be afforded the same opportunity by facing live hitters over the course of 2-3 games. What we would like to stress is that, these camps will give EVERYONE a FAIR opportunity to display their baseball skills. You will not be evaluated in one day, but rather over the course A WEEK!
