PROGRAM 15, the Official Global Grassroots Player Identification and Development Program for New Balance Baseball announce collaboration with Evolution Metrix to capture advanced scouting and evaluation data for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series Events.
Quantity and Quality rarely come in the same package, but that’s exactly what PROGRAM 15 is bringing to the world of amateur baseball player scouting and development with the announcement that Evolution Metrix will be joining them at all New Balance Future Stars Series Combines, Tournaments, and Partner Events.
Quantity: PROGRAM 15 has instantly and exponentially expanded their scouting and player identification power with the Evolution Metrix network of over 200 data collectors capturing player data and analytics at all New Balance Future Stars Series Combines, Tournaments, and Partner Events, as well as high school games and amateur baseball events across the country for PROGRAM 15 Scouts to evaluate and cross-check.
Quality: PROGRAM 15 Scouting reports and database will now include multiple advanced data points on players that are not currently being recorded at traditional amateur baseball showcase events.
PROGRAM 15 Scouting Reports are just one of the reasons Future Stars Series Scouting and Evaluation events have built a reputation as the most comprehensive amateur baseball player identification and development experiences available.
Backed by decades of Pro Baseball Scouting experience, PROGRAM 15 ’s highly-skilled scouting staff provides amateur players in-depth and credible evaluations they can trust because they are the same credible evaluations that are trusted by Major League scouts and college coaches across the country.
Evolution Metrix will assist PROGRAM 15 in the capture of simple and advanced data for relevant player analytic assessment at all New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series and Partner Events. The analytic models and data are then compiled by PROGRAM 15 scouting and advisory staff to best assist in both development and true player evaluation.
Jeremy Booth, PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series said, “Players need a standard to train against that provides a true evaluation for prediction of future success, and neither evaluation nor development can exist without the other. The impact of this relationship with Evolution Metrix is going to be tremendous. It’s like rocket fuel for our scouting staff. It’s a huge win for players, our partner programs, and for baseball.”
Justin Volman, CEO and Founder of Evolution Metrix said, “Working with PROGRAM 15 is an exciting step for our business and will allow both organizations to extend their reach both throughout the US and Internationally.”
Amateur players identified by PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts and coaches are submitted to New Balance Baseball for advanced opportunities and potential selection to regional and national team rosters for New Balance sponsored events including a potential invitation to join elite players from around the world at the prestigious New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series International Week.
