Pendelton, IN -
The Indiana Prospects Scout Day this past Sunday had plenty of talent on hand, as well as a couple dozen (or more) college coaches in attendance. There were major D1’s there as well as mid-major D1’s and colleges from all over the midwest.
All players that attended the scout day were either verbally uncommitted as an underclassmen or uncommitted as a rising senior. Colleges that weren’t in attendance definitely missed out on some arms, athletes, and bats.
The Prospects are a first class organization and ran their scout day that way. There was a canopy with chairs and tables set up by the Prospects staff specifically for the college coaches and players to have lunch in the shade. There was plenty of good food for everyone and the Prospect’s staff did a great job running the event from start to finish.
The day started with players running 60’s, then I/O from SS/1B/RF, Catcher Pop Times, BP, and ending with a game.
Being based out of Florida, our staff see’s some of the best HS players in the country every summer and fall. The midwest has always been underrated for HS players, but always produces some of the best MLB players.
After this past Sunday, our staff clearly saw why some of the best baseball talent comes out of the midwest. The players in the midwest just don’t get the same exposure the Florida, California, Texas players do unless they travel across the country every summer.
That’s why when Shane Stout, Director of Baseball Operations for the Indiana Prospects, asked us to cover their scout day. We were excited to make the trip to Indiana and help put some kids names on the national map.
