My son is 15. He recently attended his second showcase / tryout. The showcase team is coached by mostly pro associate scouts. The organization has a good reputation of helping kids get seen and developing players.
In the two tryouts he has attended, it is hard to figure out how a kid gets noticed...if you don't hit "bombs" over the center field fence. (incidently which hardly any do)
Most kids hit line drives, field balls cleanly, and run a respectable 60 yd.
At these tryouts, you get 8 ground balls at short, 8 pitches to hit, with no warm up pitches and 8 pitches to throw with no warm ups off the mound.
How does a kid realistically stand out in this type of setting?
As always all advice and commentary is appreciated.
