Perfect Game value

John S ·
Hi folks -- Please pardon my "newbiness," but I'm just wondering if the Perfect Game showcases offer legitimate value to aspiring college players (from a recruiting perspective). Is a PG showcase similar to Baseball Factory? Is one better than the other? Thanks very much for your collective wisdom, and have a great summer! -- John in Toronto.

I shared some information earlier this evening with a few posters on here privately, and I wish I could share more publicly, but I don't believe that I can do so due to health privacy.

Re: Pulling the trigger

tres_arboles ·
Just my opinion, but I think pulling the trigger and approach go hand and hand. Approach tracks both the situation and the hitter's strengths. Depending on the situation, hitter can isolate his zone, look for his pitch to hit, and swing when he gets it. Until he has two strikes on him. After two strikes, he has to expand the zone, but within reason, to give him the best chance of getting on base and not K looking. Again, I'm just a dad and never coached above the 12U level, but that's what...

Curious, does he usually bat leadoff? There are a few spots in the lineup that typically require a different approach/mindset and, of course, leadoff is the most prominent. Aside from that, yes, it certainly happens where a hitter is just frozen in a situation where he usually pulls the trigger. Hitters work on a thousand different things, mechanically and mentally, and then are asked to narrow that to just one thought when they step in the box in a game. On top of that, the situation...

^^^^^^^^^This. Concur 100% with cabbagedad. Watched son do similarly on 1,2,3 strikes early last year. It was with out a doubt the highest velo he had seen to that point, but I swear I don't think he moved except to track the pitch. He felt weird, stupid, confused afterward and I hope to never see it again, but probably will.

I never like to speak poorly of the boys in blue but it appeared sitting directly behind home plate that wind shear must have caused the ball to be in the middle of the 1st base batters box and then somehow return to the strike zone in time for the call...struck out looking. I can live with that, it happens and I would have been concerned if he had swung at that one, expanding the zone 3" off the plate with 2 strikes to protect is good, chasing a pitch out there is just not a good idea. In...

Cabbage, Yes he has been a three year leadoff in HS, in club he is leadoff, or 3 depending on the make-up of the squad. I appreciate the insight, that is what I believe too and that was the reassurance I provided, just wanted to make sure I covered the proverbial bases. Thanks!

My son has been in this situation before. In fact he's a leadoff hitter and he's scuffling right now. Like Tres_A, I'm just a dad, but my thought has always been "do what you need to do to reach the same level of comfort you had with your swing and your approach when you were at your best." In other words, "get your bucket and your tee and get in the cage."

My general observation, and my 2017 son likes to tell me this: it's harder than it looks in the stands. Or something to that effect. We've all seen our son's chase a first-pitch CB (or one drops in), lay-off a fat second pitch FB, and get in a deep hole and chase (or worse...look at strike 3). All part of the game. Pros do the same thing from time-to-time. I suppose the key is whether this is anomaly, a trend, or a consistent approach/result. If the latter, he won't be lead-off for long.

NYdad2017 ·
It's more than likely an anomaly. I've seen it happen to my son, usually once a year. Maybe twice through all 3 seasons. It happens. Just advise him to laugh it off and get back on the horse.

If it's one pitch, nothing to analyze. It happens. If it becomes habitual, then maybe he's guessing.

Re: Pulling the trigger

SluggerDad ·
A MLB scout once told us that you have to have what he called a yes-yes-yes - no approach rather than a no-no-no-yes approach. As I understood him, he meant that on each pitch you are looking to do damage as a default, holding up only when the pitch reveals itself as NOT hammerable. A no-no-no-yes approach would I guess be the opposite, it's like "show me that you are hittable, pitch. But until you show me, I'm laying off." (although with a pitcher that cant find the strike zone....) He says...

Hitters have to go to the plate with a plan and execute it. Yes, hitters can get fooled on a pitch and get punched out. But this sounds like an unprepared at bat.

I mean, that observation is brilliant. We could observe Pete Rose or Babe Ruth or Mike Trout doing the EXACT same thing and draw the EXACT same conclusion as what is being discussed here. I'll take justbb's advice one step further - chill out people, chill out.

Probably got caught expecting a ball. His timing was off. Or it was the mental issue of having to deal being down 0-1.

So what's the problem? He was off his game one at bat. Sure, he could have had a better mental approach in the failed at bat. But, it's one at bat.

RJM, Now that you broke the ice, yeah, that was my first thought as well. One step further: If batters didn't screw up a LOT, then the games would last way too long. That's how I console myself in the 3B coaching box.

It's a difficult angle to see much detail. For the most part, the mechanics look good to me. However though, in your wind up you get in a good position on the back side, but it doesn't look like you're getting the "separation" you should (the angular difference between the alignment of your hips and the alignment of your shoulders) when you take your stride forward. And from the camera angle, this looks to be because the way you're using your left leg when you bring it down into an almost...

Re: Arizona Senior All-Academic Tryouts

This was 4 years ago, but I don't think it has changed much. Pitchers tryout in the bull pens with coaches watching. There are around 8 mounds in a row that the coaches are watching. There will be a primary coach with a gun at each mound grading the pitchers. You basically have to be in the top 50% to be selected for the game based on the numbers. They are not pre-selected as kids are coming from all over the country and so are the coaches so I am not sure how they could do this. You should...
