Attending a Perfect Game showcase event is one of the most effective ways for prospective college baseball players to increase their exposure to college coaches. With today’s technology, the value of a showcase goes well beyond the actual workout and games at the event. Most of the value actually comes after the showcase, when Perfect Game hooks in the player’s information into their player promotion engine. Perfect Game, along with several other scouting organizations, have built a player promotion platform that provides players with national exposure through their multi media platform.
Another important piece is that college coaches and scouts trust PG’s evaluation of players. The data that is collected at the event is accurate, and all of the player reports/write ups are non biased. This goes a long way and is one of the reasons why Perfect Game has built an extensive network of college coaches and professional scouts. PG dedicates their services to scouts and college coaches. Additionally, the Perfect Game scouts responsible for these evaluations have years of experience at amateur and even professional levels.
Perfect Game Player Promotion
As one of the top scouting and college placement organizations, Perfect Game provides their showcase attendees with reports, video footage, and performance data that is collected from their workout. All of this information is housed in an online player profile. The player profile is a key piece to the player promotion platform because it can be accessed on the Perfect Game website by every college coach and professional scout. Their website produces over 200,000 views a day, so having a profile is a great way to get noticed by coaches.
The data provided on the profile web page is pretty robust. The top section contains the generic information about the player along with national and state rankings, if applicable. The profile also includes performance data from Pocket Radar and Diamond Kinetics, which Perfect Game has partnered with. The performance data is not only helpful from an evaluation standpoint, but it’s also there to assist with player development.
There are several other sub tabs that show the events the player has attended, awards, video footage, articles shared by the PG staff, and contact information if coaches or scouts want to reach out.
In addition to the player profile, Perfect Game also promotes players through their social media platform. Through this channel, PG supplies information about prospective college baseball players to the college coaches and scouts in their vast network. Their main profiles on twitter have a combined 110k followers.
Players that attend these events will benefit from all aspects of the Perfect Game player promotion model, including exposure at the national level, promotion through social media, and an opportunity to be ranked at the national and state level.
