Hello - That is fair. I actually know the guy who puts it together, he is an extremely hard worker.
The biggest thing and most important thing which not giving credit is there school list. 85 coaches and 40 D1 coaches and schools from all over the country, that is still the key. Headfirst has great list, but not like i95
Did you get the exit velo and 60 from headfirst? My so did not.
I find it hard to believe you didn't get any e-mails after. My son got 24 and his friend who is an average player got 11.
The standing around part is true, but for a reason is what he says. The guy says it in his speech. The busy work is for "show". You are there to be SEEN by coaches. 22 innings, sure, that is great. You want 10 innings spread on 4 fields? No thank you. My son did that and when the good pitcher was on field 1, the other fields were a GHOST town. Yes, they stand around, yes long day, but they played all day long and didn't cut it short. That is great.
Kids not knowing when their up, is on them. They put the line-up in the dug-out. Plus, my sons game had 4-5 coaches in the dug-out, I think they do that for all games.
The one field has the coaches watching when it is pitchers going or OF going and the single game. See at HF, the coaches are roaming around and YES they talk to the players more but they do not see every kid in a game, far from it.
Plus the stadium experience my son loved. At HeadFirst he liked more games, but HATED batting practice indoors.
The part about the checks is un-fair. They get paid at the end of the day from every camp they go too.
Is it perfect? No, but I will never go to a showcase that has 3 or 4 fields at the same time, does NOT give metrics and hits batting practice in batting cages where parents can't watch.
I will pass your notes along to him, but i have been in the game a long time, they do it right in my opinion. Going to tournaments, lucky to see 3 coaches.
Good luck to your son.
