PG TOP PROSPECT GAMES AT TCU

Thoughts on the PG Top Prospect Games at TCU? September 23-24, This will be the inaugural year. Considering sending our 2019 to this event, and wanted feedback if available? Looks like a good event, and PG does quality events of course. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Thanks for the reply Redbird5. I totally appreciate the feedback. Definitely worth looking at the tourneys and showcases as separate, that both feed into an equation. Also, point well taken about the "dad with rose colored glasses - not Oakleys". He was at 88 max (sitting around 86) but at a camp that most coaches there saw, but no recording via a neutral entity like PG. So that is needed. Thank you.

No I think he's doing growing tall. He has been lifting wts. and building up but he's just a skinny boy. No he goes to a very small school and the coaches don't help their students much. He has asked the coaches about getting help to play ball but this is year 2 and know one helps. We have emailed coaches both at Jr. college and University. He has got to showcase for a couple of them. But a lot we have not heard from. He plays summer ball and has played all his HS years. Been to many...

Welcome to the site... I agree with Screwball, more info would be helpful and it is certainly not too late for JC's or other D3, NAIA opportunities. In most areas, most JC's have a very local flavor and the coaching staff is familiar with the local talent. Are there JC's in your immediate area? Has your son had dialog with them? Based on his weight, I assume he hasn't really physically matured yet. Does he project to get much bigger or taller? Has he played much travel ball? Are there...

Thanks Screwball. I meant to add to Tinaj regarding this statement... "His career goal is to be a MLB player, but if that fails he wants to coach HS or college baseball." I am not one to advocate telling a player he shouldn't/couldn't chase his dreams. However, at some point, it makes sense to check the progress meter and adjust goals and dreams. As a senior in HS, in addition to chasing the baseball dream, he should also have a backup or primary plan for his career. How is he going to make...

Perhaps if you provide a little additional information than some folks can help in pointing you in the right direction. One of you posts has your son at 6-1 135. Perhaps what other pitches does he have? More importantly, what schools are agreeable, whether geographically, academically, etc.? The more information, the better you can then start putting together a target list. No idea about OK, but JUCO route still has lots of opportunity for 2017 grads.

OK, you mentioned earlier that he only has one scholarship offer. He can only go to one school, right? So one is enough if it is a school that is a fit. Realistically, high 70's, low 80's from a 2017 RHP isn't going to solicit much immediate college attention (let alone MLB) and probably little or nothing from a baseball scholarship standpoint unless he has a lot of credible success against verifiable competition (i.e. - a good travel team). Many questions still haven't been answered. Good...

My son was selected for the 14u event last year from the same tournament. There was a way to see who had been invited once the event was added to your son's player profile. For the most part, they were inviting the right kids. A lot of good players off of good majors teams. They ended up cancelling the event and all of the select 30 events. It was their first year and in my opinion they were not prepared and tried to rush it and someone pulled the plug on it. They answered my initial phone...

13U Select 30 Championships Top Prospects 7/30-8/5, 2017

PROBEAGLE ·
Hello All, I'm looking for some feedback regarding this event. My 13U son's coach handed out 3 of these "Golden Tickets" this past weekend at the DFW USSSA Select 30 Super NIT. I realize 13 YOs are a few years away from a meaningful scouting experience and our expectations should be aligned. Other than experiencing his first combine national event such as this, here are few questions I have: 1. How many invitations are given out? Are these tickets given to mostly competitive teams?

Hey Probeagle... you said " I realize 13 YOs are a few years away from a meaningful scouting experience and our expectations should be aligned." Read that back to yourself three times. Look, as you are probably aware, U-trip is well established for running youth tournaments and usually pretty well organized.

Since he is a 2017, it is pretty late in the process, but it is not too late. At this point in the process, I would get video to as many JC coaches as I could. Cabbage is right about Florida. The competition will be stiff. Get to as many showcases this summer as you can. It only takes one good performance in front of the right guy to make it happen. Good luck!

Welcome to the site. I'm not quite sure if you are dad or player - your post says "my son" but then says "my HS stats.." Doesn't matter, your questions and contributions are welcome either way. That said, I'm also not exactly sure what your question is. If you are asking if it is feasible to play JC ball in Florida, all we have to go by is your numbers. Video would help. Based purely on the numbers, your speed, power and arm strength do not appear to stand out among college players, in fact...

I would highly recommend the Complete Showcase. Guaranteed a minimum amount of coaches (usually 30 but could be up to 100) and a maximum amount of participants. Your son will be evaluated by 2 college coaches but will be looked at by more. No more wondering if a college scout or coach will be at a game or whether you have to make the championship round to be seen.

Phanatic, Comparing a PG showcase to a PG tournament is apples and oranges. Both are fruits and a necessary part of recruiting, IMO, but they accomplish different goals. The PG Tournament is where players show they can get out decent hitters, rather than simply striking out the same kid from a rival high school over and over. And, if they get hit a little bit, they can show their makeup....among other things. Their velo, command, etc. may or may not be noted. The PG Showcase is where they...

Thanks for all the posts. My 2017 has been to two PG WWBA tournaments, but not to any of the PG showcases yet. That is what prompted my initial question about the value and relative pros and cons of PG run tournaments and showcases. At tournaments, the players are evaluated on game performances and that is always a hit or miss in my opinion (depending on where you play for example at Lakepoint or area HS fields, who you are playing, and who is watching you at any given point when you are...

If he has never done a PG showcase, your son may want to attend at least one late spring/early summer to see where he is relative to his peers and get some updated video and verified numbers. If he does well enough, he could receive an invite to the PG National Showcase, which is loaded with college coaches who want to see the best match ups. As far as tournament play this summer, USA Baseball 17U National Team Championships (east or west), 17U WWBA, and an Area Code tryout if you can get an...

Phanatic, Sounds like your son could create some interest. So much depends on the other things once the velocity is recognized.

PG can be powerful for sure. Depending upon many things its not for everyone. You're son will be a needle in a haystack. They have tens of thousands of kids they're looking at any given weekend at tournaments alone. There showcases are 400-500 kids minimum. College coaches mostly incognito on sidelines so you never know if you may have caught an eye. 99% will leave the showcase and or tournament never hearing a word from anyone that might have seen them. 88 max velo is good but that will not...

Thanks again for all the suggestions. I am convinced on the need for going to a PG showcase. PGSTAFF: appreciate all the nuances to stocking up player projections that come into play. Although challenging, over the course of many years, these intangibles that we refer to (body type, arm action, command, secondary pitch readiness, poise, ability to get batters out, etc) have coalesced with metrics (pitch velocity, spin rate, etc). Together they are better aids to project what a 16 year old...
