Division 3 to Pro

lionhurler ·
Does anyone have any experience or know how to get pro scouts to come see you play at a Division 3 school? I've heard most of the Division 3 players that get drafted/signed played in top summer leagues like Northwoods or Cape Cod but those leagues seem to want scout recommendations. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: Considering Easton EPG (Professional Series) glove for my son. Any opinions on their quality?

David Loucks ·
Hope it's not too late to help you out. Long story short, Easton's EPG series is the best pro level glove on the market in my opinion... especially considering the price at which they can be obtained. Retail price is comparable to most top of the line gloves, but buying on Ebay is the way to go. I have several models myself (12.75, 12, and 1b). The japanese tanned steer hide is ideal. Extremely durable, holds shape, yet remains pliable and they are the most light weight gloves I've ever...

Your coach is going to place you in the appropriate league if he thinks you have the talent he will get you placed there. Top D3 programs have scouts at their games and following their top players and many have a scout day. Getting noticed is not typically not the problem if the talent is there.

BOF is correct, I know a kid friend of the family who committed to a power 5 school. For a few reasons he ended up staying local and throwing D3 ball. He had many scouts looking at him closely this summer and will have many more this spring.

Much depends on which DIII college you are at. Some are followed closely by the scouting community, many are not followed at all. There is a very big difference between the highest level and lower levels of DIII. I would think that most coaches would know when they have a player with professional ability. They should also know some area scouts that they can notify and someone in a summer leagues. Also, be proactive if you truly believe you're a prospect. There are Tryouts you can attend.

A coach at a quality D3 is going to know pro scouts. He's probably had scouts interested in his players in the past. If a player isn't getting interest and his coach isn't good enough to help he should attend a MLB tryout. If he has anything he will be noticed. A D3 pitcher is more likely to draw interest than a D3 hitter. 90+ is 90+ regardless of the competition. I know a kid who entered college 5'11" throwing 84. He left drafted, 6'2" throwing 93. The question regarding D3 hitters is the...

The coach of my son's D3 says that he expects that up to three of his players should draw some interest in the draft this year. From what we can gather the coaches are well connected and well respected, at least for a D3. They seem to get what might be called a small trickle of guys drafted from time to time. I think I read on their website that it was 24 in the past I can't remember how many years. So it definitely can happen. Of those 24 draft picks, though, I think most were in very late...

Thanks for the input everyone! Looks like I'll have to attend a tryout this summer since my school isn't a power house D3 program. We do play a lot of power house schools (two schools from our conference went to the world series last year and one of their coaches made it to the majors) though so I may get lucky if a scout is watching someone on another team. I am a pitcher by the way and I know we have a better chance at being scouted. Thanks again!

Here's the key question: what is your velo (sitting and touch)?

With that velo, you should press your coach to find you a spot - Northwoods would be perfect for you. If he does not have the contacts, press him to speak to an area scout who has the right contacts. If that doesn't work, at the beginning of the Northwoods season, teams are always looking for temp players to fill in until the rostered players arrive. Do well during that temp contract and the team will either have a spot or call other teams on your behalf. Also, as the Northwoods season...

lion, I am going to come at this in a slightly different way, but it worked for our son who was a D3 position player who was drafted. This is actually the way our son's D3 coach did it and his track record for Summer placements is second to none at the D3 level-last summer he had one player selected as a Northwoods All Star and 2 selected as NECBL All-Stars, (including one pitcher) and another who was one of the very top hitters in the NECBL for most of that Summer. I would suggest you look...

You have received great advice, get on a good summer league team, work on your velo, and don't worry about the pro prospects until it is evident you have those skills. 86-88 in today's world is nowhere near where you need to be. Frankly 90 is not that unusual these days, for serious pro interest you will have to sit 90 (minimum) and be touching 94-95, anything less than this you are just kidding yourself. My son has a friend from his program (CWS team) who sat 90 touched 94 and was taken as...
