"Our webinars aim to provide you with free access to an extensive pool of professional knowledge about the game of baseball from around the world. You can then best harness the knowledge acquired, information learned from our webinars and use it to create a knowledge strategy for your coaching, officiating or use it to develop your playing skills. During these times of self-isolation it is another way for us to assist you to remain engaged and get prepared for when we resume on the field. " British Baseball Federation



Baseball scouts are professional player talent evaluators for Major League Baseball teams. Scouts travel extensively to view players across the globe who have the skills and talent to play Major League Baseball.

Scouts gather a variety of data which goes into scouting reports, about prospective players to measure their performance and skills and project their future. Their head offices then evaluate their reports. Players who exemplify the attributes and skills to earn the interest of a Major League Baseball team, will be continuously followed by the organisation and scouts and maybe drafted or signed by an Major League Baseball team.

  • The tasks and objectives of an MLB scout.
  • How scouts identify players.
  • Key performance measurements and reports.

  • How coaches can assist players in their development.
