PROGRAM 15, the Official Global Grassroots Player Identification and Development Program for New Balance Baseball announces an expanded partnership with Prospect Wire to provide Major League Scouting Reports to Prospect Wire Elite 100 Events.
The scouting reports and database information generated through today’s amateur baseball showcase events are often the primary conduit to college recruiters and scouts that so many players and their families rely upon for reaching the next level of baseball.
However, most of these events have one big and rarely talked about problem. The information is 20 feet wide but only two inches deep, filled with glowing scouting reports on the obvious, easy-to-identify prospects; players who recruiters and scouts will be tripping over themselves to get to…with or without a report. Even the most inexperienced level of scout often found evaluating many of the showcase events today has a shelf full of reports on players they were ‘right about.’
And that’s the big problem. There are many truly talented players that scouts misjudge or overlook entirely.
PROGRAM 15, the Official Global Grassroots Player Identification and Development Program for New Balance Baseball and Prospect Wire, one of the largest and highly regarded scouting services for high school baseball in America, are on a mission to evolve the scouting and recruiting process and provide these players a real opportunity to reach their true potential.
By merging the unquestionable credibility of PROGRAM 15’s Scouting and Evaluation Reports with Prospect Wire’s innovative Scoutcast real-time analytics, these two recognized leaders in the amateur baseball player development and evaluation world are committed to making sure no player goes undocumented or unevaluated during the upcoming Prospect Wire Elite 100 Events.
PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts and coaches will be on site to evaluate and write pro scouting reports on players attending the events. Along with their extensive scouting experience, PROGRAM 15 staff will have access to video and analytics data on every pitch, every swing and every play of the games collected through Scoutcast, the new, state of the art scouting solution from the founder of Prospect Wire, Matt Bomeisl.
PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth said, “Matt and the Prospect Wire crew continue to innovate and find ways to improve their system. It’s just another big step in partnership as we move forward to make a difference and help players succeed. We will implement this comprehensive solution in all Future Stars Series events and coming team scout days.”
Scoutcast is driven by several technologies, spearheaded by Flightscope’s doppler radar system, and uses Scoutcast’s own proprietary technology to generate a platform of analytics and video within hours of completion.
