Scout Day – Hosted exclusively for FSS Partner Programs, each player attending a Scout Day event receives a co-branded t-shirt, hat, and full Future Stars Series created scouting report written by a professional scout who has signed MLB players. These reports include the MLB 20-80 scale and a proprietary role prediction model developed by the Future Stars Series from thousands of games and scouted players. This model has been widely accepted by MLB clubs when making draft decisions. This includes many of the recent 33 players drafted or signed in the 2022 draft who have participated in previous New Balance Future Stars Series events.
Player profiles and evaluations are logged into the PROGRAM 15 Proprietary Scouting Database and made available to college coaches and pro scouts across the country. These events when allowed are live streamed through the FSS TV (when possible) system for viewing across the globe. Many college coaches in today’s world of recruiting will watch the live stream to set up or confirm their future scouting boards. Our reports have earned the trust of those coaches and we have had many players earn college offers immediately following our events. Scout Days will be covered by the Future Stars Series social media team reaching over 100 million views and impressions. We encourage you to follow all our social media accounts and tag us in your posts from your events.
Players attending their organization’s Scout Day will also be evaluated for selection to attend a New Balance Future Stars Series Underclass or National Combine, allowing them to bypass the normally required Regional Combine as they progress toward a potential invitation to the Fresh 50, Underclass Elite or Main Event signature events. The Main Event is hosted in an MLB stadium such as Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, and CitiField, home of the New York Mets. This bypass step is only available to players that are part of one of our Partner Programs.
What does this mean for your family? The Scout Day because of the Partner Program Host has been discounted from the regular combine rate to ensure that all can participate and increase the value of our being a part of our Partner Programs. The advantage to attending the Scout Day is that it saves the family $150 alone without factoring in travel to a regional site. Even better for players that are selected to move onto the Underclass or National Combines, these events do not have a registration cost. Instead, they are made available at no cost to the players that participate in fundraising for charity with our Future Stars Series Foundation. Taking even more of a financial burden away from your family while giving back.

The e-mail used for the notification is the e-mail used to register for the Scout Day. Players selected to participate in the next round of events will also be notified via e-mail of their selection at various times throughout the year.
