Each player will receive a full Program 15 scouting report, developmental feedback and plan to assist in their long-term growth from a staff composed of former MLB Players, Scouts, Executives & Coaches with 10 World Series Rings
The Future Stars Series camps are led and attended by the Program 15 National Staff of Major League Veteran players, scouts, and coaches including Jeremy Booth, Trenidad Hubbard, Benji Gil, Butch Baccala, Adam Czajkowski, Roberto Kelly, Chad Moeller, and Jim Parque.
Program 15 CEO, President of Baseball Operations, Jeremy Booth stated, “Our program is specifically designed to develop each individual player’s ability to his full potential, then to get that player the results that their ability deserves. Our commitment is the same, whether it’s a young man with the desire to move from select ball to playing in high school, from high school to being recruited by a Division 1 college or from college to MLB draft pick.”
Many professional and MLB players including George Springer, A.J. Reed, Brady Rodgers, Michael Reed, Scott Manea, Alex Jackson, Zack Wells, Tyler Beede and Leon Byrd got a jump on the pre-season by working with Program 15’s training and development staff before heading off to spring training.
On his recent offseason with Program 15, Astros first baseman A.J. Reed said, “It was nice to have that outside set of eyes watch me work on my swing and giving me feedback. I feel like I made some pretty good strides working with Jeremy this offseason and I put myself in a good position to be ready for this year”.
Astros pitcher Brady Rogers said, “Jeremy saw me at my best in high school and in college. My first few years in pro ball, I didn’t feel like myself, something was off. Coming here really helped me take that step forward. Is it a coincidence that the first offseason I spent with Program 15 I ended up making it to the big leagues that next year? I don’t think so. Working with Jeremy really helped me to take a huge leap forward and make my dream of getting to the big leagues come true”.
