Scouting Site Launches In August!
We really appreciate all of your patience as we launch our new scouting site PointsDriven. We teamed up with the pros at Digital Honeycomb to create a scouting site where we will upload information from Showcases to give you a scout's look at your athletes that they can use for recruiting or just to help them know what areas need improvement. We will make the official announcement next week, but wanted to give an update on our status.
Below is a quick recap on the ETSU Player Showcase and Tournament from John Moorehouse.
ETSU PLAYER SHOWCASE
NET Elite Baseball's first individual showcase is in the books, and it opens an era of exciting exposure for baseball players in this area to get opportunities at the next level.
Two professional scouts and nine college scouts, representing levels ranging from Division I to NAIA, came out in Johnson City to watch as players from across the Southeast showed their skills.
The showcase also held round-robin games in the 16U and 18U divisions, held in Bristol and Johnson City.
Players were evaluated in the following areas, in the new NET Elite PointsDriven scouting platform. This system is set to launch early August.
· hitting (contact, power)
· pitching (fastball, curveball/offspeed, mechanics)
· arm (best pop)
· speed (including home to first base)
