BaseballWebTV.com: A Baseball Revolution

Ebert
on 12/27/2005

 

Perfect Game USA has launched a new web-site that will revolutionize amateur scouting as we know it: BaseballWebTV.com:

http://www.baseballwebtv.com/

Already known as the World's Largest Scouting Report Service, Perfect Game through the BaseballWebTV.com website will bring scouting video to the world wide web.

For years, scouts, cross-checkers and scouting directors for big-league teams as well as college recruiters have used Perfect Game showcase and tournament events as a valuable resource to evaluate the best and brightest young baseball players in the nation, and even the world. Perfect Game assembles the best players from across the globe to one unified location, where the players are not only able to strut their stuff in front of so many important observers, but with and against the best players in the nation.

Perfect Game, along with the tournament division of their operations, the World Wood Bat Association (WWBA) annually hosts the biggest tournament event of the year at the joint spring training complex of the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals in Jupiter, Florida. The past two years this event has been hit hard by rain due to hurricanes, and this year Hurricane Wilma caused the event to be pushed back a month. By pushing the event back a month, it entered the dead period of college recruiting, meaning college recruiters could not attend this event to scout prospective players. While the Major-League scouts could still attend, not having the throng of colleges in attendance could be a major deterrent for the players of the 80-plus teams that participate.

With this problem, Perfect Game USA decided to push up the launch of this new venture, BaseballWebTV.com, which debuted on Thursday, December 15th. The idea is to take video of each and every game at the Jupiter tournament event and make it available for all to view from the comforts of their own home. While college recruiters were not able to attend the event due to the fact that it fell in the dead period, there is nothing preventing them from watching such videos from their own home or office.

That is just one example of how advantageous BaseballWebTV.com will be. Imagine a college recruiter that wants to see two separate players playing at two separate events on the same weekend. Or, envision a scouting director that wants to see live video of a player they have not yet seen to enhance a scouting report provided from an area scout. Are you a proud parent that wants to tape your son's game and have the video available for all to see? Or even a parent that cannot attend the nation-wide events that your son attends? There are also fans like yours truly that can never be satisfied with the amount of scouting information currently available. BaseballWebTV.com will appeal to so many different people that it will indeed revolutionize baseball scouting as we know it.

And there will be many more features than just the games from WWBA's tournament events. There will be scouting profiles, ranging from individual player profiles to top prospect lists. Friends and family members will be encouraged to take video of their sons and friends and supply that video to BaseballWebTV.com so that everyone can enjoy watching those players' performances over the course of the year. The 60-yard dash, batting practice, infield and outfield drills and other aspects from Perfect Game showcase events will also be available to be viewed. There will be daily recap shows from tournament events, showcase and tournament highlights, interviews with players, coaches and scouts as well as instructional videos. BaseballWebTV.com also plans on spreading their wings to cover college and minor league baseball as well, to cover the vast number of players that have already attended Perfect Game events.

There will be varying levels of video features for viewers. Some of the programming will be free of charge for all to view. Other videos can be purchased individually, and there will be subscription packages as well.

Be sure to check BaseballWebTV.com out today, and become a part of the Baseball Revolution.
