SoCal Scout Team Question

AcademicsFirst ·
My son is a 2015 sophomore and a LHP for a high school in Santa Clarita, CA.  I've been doing my research regarding local Scout Teams (West Coast Rangers, SoCal Cardinals, SoCal Cubs, SoCal Sox, etc) and was wondering if anyone had experience...

We are assisting the Tampa Bay Rays for their Scout team tryout. If you have an interest, please open our web site and complete the player profile. The majority of scout teams hold tryouts at no cost. The Fall games are scouted by professionals and college coaches. Bob <www.goodwillseries.org>

If your son has an opportunity to play scout ball, then I suggest that he plays. I know for our son it was a very positive experience, and the best exposure from college and pro scouts. On the average over a weekend we would routinely see 20 scouts.

2019Son received an invitation out of the blue to try out for one of the SoCal scout teams. First thing I did was research it on HSBBW and found this thread, which was helpful. I do have a few questions: 1. What are the tryouts like? Is it a cast of thousands or more narrowly targeted? 2. Are there different teams per grade level? Or one team with a mix of grades on it? 3. Are certain of the scout teams "better" or more well regarded than others? (And I understand if you'd rather give that...

My son played for the SoCal Cardinals and knows kids who played for the Cubs. Coming from Santa Clarita would work for both of those teams. I also think the A's are in the SF Valley and would work also. All of the tryouts are pretty competitive and only the top kids make the fall scout team. I am not sure about the Connie Mack teams. The new Connie Mack league was just starting when he played and he played for the D-Rays in that league. Let me know what specific questions you have and I can...

Imo: Bend over backwards to play scout ball; understand what scout ball is and what it isn't. Our experience delivered all the desired results of scout ball: exposure to college recruiters, exposure to pro scouts, low (absurdly low) cost, exposure to the future pro players (to gauge their level of play, their heart, their spirit,etc.), excellent on the spot instruction in areas that scouts care about, and more. We live in San Diego and the majority of scout games were in Orange County, LA,...

Cabbage played in the league. I'll echo most of what Goosegg and BOF said. The format is quite different. The quality of players is very good. Most often, there is a D1 or likely draft pick pitcher on the hill. The Cardinals seem to be the cream of the crop as far as organizations go but they run two squads - red and blue. Red is mostly higher profile players. They get a crazy amount of players show up for their tryouts and they have quite a bit of info on their website. Son played with the...

Do the kids on the current scout team try out again next year? or try outs are only for new players? Are sophomores, juniors on the team treated the same as the seniors?

Each team is run differently - so ask the coaches about the tryouts. Years ago (we're talking almost seven years ago) there was no distinction on S's team between seniors and other players - everyone basically played as much as they desired.

Always fascinating when travel ball group like CBA is "protecting players" for any reason. It would seem to be the responsibility of MLB and their teams to verify that any coach/team claiming to be a legitimate scout team of the parent organizations is exactly that. There are a ton of them around the SoCal area claiming to be Scout teams, so maybe someday there will be an effort to create a MLB-stamp of authenticity required to advertise a team as such.

The Orioles have traditionally had a team based in San Diego - coached by their area scout (a great guy).

Re: SoCal Scout Team Question

BOF ·
The Cubs are legit, they are playing in the official So Cal Scout league schedule which is the most important thing since it is heavily attended by various college coaches. The only issue is how much funding the parent club gives. In the old days the cost used to be $100 and the club picked up the rest, but I know that has changed over the years. The SoCal scout league was one of the best things we did in the recruiting process.

Re: SoCal Scout Team Question

That's a fair point, and I'm certainly not carrying water for CBA. I just thought it was interesting to see someone actually identify them by name (and by implication call the other ones illegitimate). I have heard a simple test is, if you have to pay them, it's a travel team, not a real Scout team.

This was true in my son's experience here in Florida. Not sure if the money came from the big league club or if the scout running the program covered everything out of his pocket, but I know it didn't cost us anything. In this day and age, a few minutes with Google will tell you if a guy is legitimately affiliated with a club or if he is just blowing smoke.

The Orioles have and believe still do completely sponsor a team in Maryland (Youses Orioles/Oriolelanders). How does the SoCal league compare to PG/WWBA events?

We did both. The Scout League is over a 10 week period in the fall that ends with the Az Fall Classic. My son also played on a travel team that did Connie Mack games in the summer and a few PG WWB tournaments on the West Coast. We never did travel to the East Coast WWB events. So coaches who were interested in my son saw him multiple times at multiple events, PG tournaments in Az, Connie Mack games, So Cal Scout League, and finally at the Az Sr Classic and Academic game.

Funny to read this thread years later. My son did end up playing for one of the scout teams listed above. Fun experience. Lots of good players. Highly recommend it -- it's fun, and for a lot of kids it can be really useful for recruiting (as it turned out, for my kid that wasn't the case because he played scout ball as a position player only, and he's going to college as a pitcher, but it was still fun).

Senior All-Academic Tryout / Arizona Fall Classic

My son recently committed to a high academic D3 school. He's very excited about both the academics and the baseball program, however this is one of those schools that does not have "slots" for athletes. He has to get past admissions, and the school is extremely selective. I don't believe the coaches would have recruited him if he didn't have a chance, but it's far from a sure thing. His pre-read was not a slam dunk, but also not a "no". He'll be applying early decision, and that leads to my...
