Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2010
High school athletes have multiple factors working against them these days regarding college recruitment. Reduced budgets have caused many baseball and softball programs to lessen the number of available scholarships. Plus, athletes are simply getting skillfully better, as more parents see the value in starting kids earlier in sports, and having them play more often. Plus, it is just flat-out difficult to catch the attention of busy college scout, even for some above-average athletes.
But, the creators of the new High School Baseball Scout and High School Softball Scout iPhone apps think they have an answer. The apps, created by three experienced coaches, facilitates the recruitment process by organizing key stats, hosting social media connectivity, and providing direct contact with over 300 of the nation’s top Division I baseball programs.
“These apps have everything any aspiring athlete could possibly need to get the recruitment process going,” says Michael Lusic, one of the app’s creators. “As a high school coach, I’ve had the opportunity to witness some pretty special talents. Unfortunately, especially these days, and as silly as it sounds, it takes more than talent to get noticed,” Lusic continues. “This app does everything short of teleporting a scout into your living room.”
Anything that can be done to give an athlete a leg up in such a competitive environment should be adopted, and this is exactly what makes the app so popular. From start to finish, the app is specifically set up to further the dreams of any potential star athlete. With the simple push of a button, email the coach of your preferred college baseball or softball program with your intentions, show them an entire seasons worth of stats, and even add a video highlight to your message. This is just a small sample of what the app has to offer…the list of capabilities is really endless.
So, while competition is getting tougher by the day, why leave your chances of playing professional ball to chance? The small monetary cost seems well worth investment, as high school athletes from all over the country will soon be reaping all of the benefits these apps have to offer.
