Synopsis

For decades baseball scouts beat the bushes for talent, wandering throughout the country in search of promising young players. But technology and competition have recently brought about big changes, as potential stars are identified as early as Little League.The largest such scouting and development service, Perfect Game USA, has become the primary pipeline to college and professional baseball, with its participants accounting for more than 70 percent of the players taken in the 2007 amateur draft. This book looks at the history, methods, and impact of Perfect Game USA, which continues to change the landscape of youth baseball.
