What is a prospect?
Is a prospect long and lean like every girl’s dream? Is he a
star in the making? When looking at a prospect, you have to make a series of
determinations. Let’s look a few:
(Is he young for his league? Is he advanced?
(Is he fully grown? Can he fill-out/grow taller/stronger)
(Does he plays SS, CF or Catcher Can he? Does he pitch?)
(can he hit, can he throw, is he fast)
(The call it make-up. Is he a good guy? Does he work hard?)
(Can he take direction? Can he learn)
(Was he a bonus baby?)
Location (Is he a local player?)
(Are they promising? Can he play at a high level)
- Ballplayer. (Is he a ballplayer? Does he have the look?)
