  1. Be aware of this money making SCAM. I was at 2 of their tryouts
    and know of the Florida ones that took place. Maybe 1 players was signed! I saw a player againist live pitching go 3 for 3 with a walk and home run making 3 bullet stops at 3rd and all they said was he did not have a good glove and they could not use him. Pretty sketchy for the others who performed well and traveled to be there just to be told NO. At least 10-12 players performed well enough to be signed. Sad!! Do your research .


    1. EVERY pro baseball tryout is a way to make money. Only a few guys ever sign… that’s just the reality of tryouts at this point. I know a few guys who did sign from these tryouts the last couple of years, so it does happen, just not often. The same thing happens during Frontier tryouts as well.
