The purpose of this training guide is to show young players that you don't need to be extremely talented to get drafted. I did not have superior athletic talent. I didn't even play 4 years of varsity baseball in high school. I walked on to the local junior college baseball team with only an academic scholarship. I worked hard and studied the game to learn exactly how scouts grade and evaluate players. Using that knowledge and a relentless work ethic, I honed the little skill I did have and earned my shot at professional baseball. With the information in this guide you can too!
