Why do scouts go to Crossroads Baseball Series events?

Two (2) major reasons College Coaches go out to recruit:

  1. They hear about a player from a trusted source or have watched a player's video and want to see that player perform in person.
  2. They are attending an event in which they know recommended players are attending.
Crossroads Advantage:
  • We communicate w/ HS and Travel Coaches to bring in top uncommitted players for College Coaches to scout.
  • 100's RSVP'd College Coaches attend our events each year.
  • ​We encourage players to take advantage of our network as College Coaches from 1600+ Colleges across the country can view contact info, video, transcripts, schedule, and connect with players.

How are players scouted when attending a Crossroads Showcase?

Our showcases have College Coaches attending and following players remotely during and after each event. Each player will have the opportunity to showcase defensively, offensively, and play in a prospect game.

  • Each event features an online Crossroads 'Coach Packet' with detailed information on every player for College Coaches.
  • College Coaches across the country have exclusive access to our Coach Packet.
  • All verified event results and videos are sent to players to share with College Coaches.
  • ​PROGRAM15 (P15) Pro Scouts evaluate players at select events.
  • Players are entered into the National P15 database in which College Coaches and Pro Scouts can log-in and access written reports, data, video, and a player projection.
  • Players also connect with college coaches via our online partner Next College Student Athlete (NCSA) and gain valuable recruiting education.
  • 1620+ College baseball programs have viewed and/or interacted w/ 500,000+ Player Profiles in the past year in the Next College Student Athlete database.
  • ​Our All-Scout Series is attended by college and pro scouts and features the top identified players from multiple states.
  • Players are considered for selection to the New Balance Future Stars Pro Development Combines and International Series at Fenway Park.

How does a Coach 'Recommend a Player' for an event? What does that mean?

We lead a grassroots effort to promote, develop, and educate future college and pro players.

  • High School and Travel baseball coaches across the country can RECOMMEND A PLAYER at any time during the year.
  • Recommended Players are notified via email, text, and/or phone about their invitation to attend an event.

How do I 'Request an Invite' to attend an event?

Not all HS/Travel coaches send in recommendations for their players...

  • We highly recommed that players REQUEST AN INVITE.
  • Players provide info about themselves when requesting an invite. We ask that players be truthful on this form for their own benefit.
  • We match players to events in which the coaches/scouts attending are excited to discover and follow them.
