Coach son drove about 500 miles yesterday to watch 2 pitchers in HS games. One was at one of top 5 HS in country, the other not sure about.
He didn't go to see who won or who lost he went to see the pitchers " stuff". How the pitcher prepares in the pen how he interacts in the dugout with teammates, his demeanor on the mound, etc. He determines whether the player has potential according to his standards for the program he works for. Both of these pitchers reached out to the HC for consideration as a walk on. Both currently mid 80s.
So for all of you trying to figure out how it works, thats how it works. And don't sell character short or playing HS BB, it's important going into the college program ( not as high on the list in pro ball) also is about all players " stuff", grades, whether he will buy in to the philosophy.
