What Are Some Ways You Can Get Noticed By An MLB Team?

For any fan of Major League Baseball, there is a point in your life where you picture yourself as a massive star in the sport, striking out a batter in a huge situation or hitting the baseball over the Green Monster out there in Fenway Park and rounding the bases. However, there are a bunch of different ways that you can get noticed by an MLB team, and today we are going to discuss a few ways to do just that. 

With the World Series about to begin, now is a better time than ever to make some of your MLB picks a reality and make some cash off of them!

Professional Scouts

The job of a scout for professional sports teams is to find talent, and they are going to scour high school games and travel baseball teams to find players that they could potentially select in upcoming MLB Drafts. Teams dedicate scouts to all different areas to get the best players in the country. They have contacts in all areas to make sure they have all potential avenues checked, as they follow local news clippings to make sure they are checking out the best talent available.

Even if you are not the one that they are at a game or field to see, if they are at the field and you are playing, then that is a chance to shine. Professional scouts have connections throughout the area, so if you are a name in the area, chances are teams are going to have an eye on you. 

How to Get Noticed 

There are a lot of ways to get noticed, but the main objective should be to put in the work and have great tape to send to scouts as a recruiting tape. A lot of players that are drafted straight out of high school will still attend college to try to increase their draft prospects and continue to compete against some of the better talents in the entire country. I understand college is not always an option for some people for a myriad of reasons, but if that is something you cannot do, then there are other options. 

Attending one of the Major League Scouting Bureau tryouts is a good way to get your name and information in front of scouts all around the league. These are only in a limited number of areas, so you might have to travel to the event if that is one of the options you are considering. 

Scouts are looking for the best players, whether you live in the middle of nowhere or in a highly populated city; if you are talented enough, then word will get out and continue to grow to the point scouts will come out to you to see how you do in person.

Social Media

In the age of social media, there are a lot of different ways that you can simply post highlights of your game onto different social media channels to have people see what you are doing. 

Continue to hone in on your craft and get better, as this is not an excuse to just post what you did and not try to get better. There are hundreds of social media accounts that have connections and will post your video or videos to their account with your information in order to help you grow your brand and potentially be seen by a bunch of people.

Conclusion 

Whether you want to believe it or not, your information is probably in a scouting department’s inventory if you look like you have a chance to play at the highest levels and continue to check in to see exactly how you have progressed and what you’re doing to improve your game throughout. What are some other ways that collegiate and professional scouts can see how you play the game and how you can be the next superstar MLB player?
