Perfect Game event questions

CoachGato ·
My son, class of 2018, is a catcher who will be attending a Perfect Game event in Colorado in May. Living in Colorado, we decided this was a great opportunity for him. Now I am hearing he should only go to Perfect Game events in the areas in which he wants to go to college. Should he be requesting invitations to other regional events, to include the National Academic in June? Will going to one event be enough, given he scores out well? Background on him, if it's even relevant: varsity...

Those measureables are all very good. By Perfect Game "event" do you mean a Showcase? Or a Tournament?

I assume he means the Rocky Mountain Showcase. COACHGATO, I'm Coloardo myself. I'll shoot you a PM.

The PG events that attract the most coaches and scouts are the tournaments where the travel teams play. The national events have lots and lots of top level programs scouting the events, and many recruit heavily at them. My 2017 attended two PG showcases in Southern California where there is tons of talent and schools looking to recruit. However, there were very few schools and scouts beyond PG's own scouts who assign the player ratings at the showcase events. We saw some local JCs and a few...

I'm in Iowa, so Perfect Game is right down the street (okay, interstate). 2018 was invited to a showcase, but I know his travel team plans to play a tournament there this fall. We really want to get him to a PG event — sounds like the recommendation would be the tournament over the showcase?

That depends. If he is a known player, meaning you're in contact with schools that have shown an interest, then a tournament is optimal assuming you can get his pitching/playing schedule to the coaches who have expressed an interest. If you happen to be playing against a team with a lot of heavily recruited players and your kid shows something spectacular at the right time, you might draw some interest that way, but the don't have a bunch of recruiters wondering around without a purpose just...

He has a couple of offers, and we actually will be en route to a campus visit with another school he's talking to. He seems pretty happy with the schools he is talking to, I just wondered if the spring showcase would be better timing than a fall tournament as far as timing for getting interest from any schools that he hasn't been talking with yet? But as I write that, it feels like a lot of money for a not very specific goal.

There is no doubt that schools use PG showcase write ups and stats for exactly that reason - to find players they haven't noticed before.

Correct. It's the Rocky Mountain Showcase. Thanks for the input. He had been staying with his high school team over the summers, but it sounds like this year we may need to evaluate that (assuming its not too late). As the youth and high school landscape has changed, the model of staying with your high school team over the summer seems to be going the way of the dinosaur. His coach is trying to get to more showcase tournaments to sort of combat that trend, but I think for higher talent that...

I hear you Coach. The process has changed a lot in recent years, and my biggest regret on my 2017 was not seeking a stronger travel ball team for him to give him a chance to be in these bigger tournament events. That said, you do want the Summer leading into Senior year to be where he can get the most exposure to the most schools, so attending some of the showcases is also a great way to go if he has something to show. The HS coaches in our area around SoCal are usually reasonable in letting...

We do not list coaches and scouts because we don't pay them to be there. It means a lot more when they actually want to be there to see the players and spend money to be there. Seeing that we never pay them, it is impossible to know who will be at any event for sure. All showcases are not the same, including ours. We will be doing some June showcases that have few scouts and colleges attend. We will also be doing some that will have scouts from every MLB club and most all the top college...

Thank you, BACKSTOP22! Information to put to good use! We will check out those teams for sure. The back up catcher for my son's team was on a younger Rockies Scout team, and understand these teams can be costly (justifiably). Cost is a factor for my family, but understand this could be an important investment for him. I appreciate your help!

Thanks, PGStaff! Again the recruiting landscape is foreign to us (as a parent), so your input is invaluable! Regarding the evaluations, will Mike be given a good idea of the level of play he is best suited for in those evaluations? Or, is it strictly an objective recitation of the skills he displayed? Does that make sense? His list of colleges is not even close to being narrowed down (other than by desired major, architecture). And as a parent, we want to balance dreams and realities. As a...

COACHGATTO, The most difficult player for any father to accurately evaluate is his own son. I have seen MLB Scouting Directors and crosscheckers that make their living being expert evaluators, but they can't accurately evaluate their sons. One thing people don't always understand is that there are many more kids with DI skills or potential than there are DI roster spots. So if DI is the goal, or maybe the highest level of DI, or even the MLB draft, you should see what is out there and...

Showcases can be good but also very expensive. I recomend attending some Prospect camps at schools in your area or at schools he is interested in.My son got alot of instruction, feedback and offers from attending school specific Prospect camp. I would recomend asking what the maximum number of players is. If kept under 50 that works.
