LIVE THE DREAM!
Get Paid to Play Baseball
MLB tryouts, independent league tryouts, baseball showcases and pro placement services all provide an avenue for aspiring pro ballplayers to show baseball scouts that they deserve a shot. But to take advantage of these opportunities, it’s imperative to understand exactly what each type of tryout event is all about. Each of these events have different, but clear cut objectives for those that run them.
To excel at an MLB tryout or other type of pro baseball workout (such as an independent league tryout), there are particular aspects of the tryout format that each player can and should learn. Every player that hopes to go pro should understand EXACTLY what baseball scouts and decision makers look for in a prospect at an MLB tryout. It's especially important to know the specifics at each position. Players and parents should also understand how these tryouts function; in other words, exactly which skills the scouts will ask you to display at the tryout.
In the pages ahead you'll learn some information that will vastly improve your chances of making a splash at an MLB tryout or an independent league tryout. If you’re really serious about pursuing professional baseball as a career, consider purchasing “Live The Dream; Get Paid to Play Baseball.” This book will arm you with the knowledge, top to bottom, to maximize your chances of playing pro ball!
Unless you throw 98 MPH or are a stone cold 5-tool prospect with 30 scouts drooling on their clipboards every time you exit the dugout, you can’t afford NOT to learn the important information both on this site and in the book!
