I am looking for any information on The Baseball Factory. They are a college recruiting service. They have a "try out" upcoming in January in Mesa and we received a letter for our youngest son to attended and would like to get as much information as possible. Thanks
The Baseball Factory is connected to Under Armour. My son also received a letter and I know some kids who have gone to the tryout. I have also seen several of their teams at an Under Armor tournament in Tucson last year. I believe that they do assist with recruiting but it is very expensive. I think the tryout is pretty much if you can afford it you make the team as they have numerous teams. Of course that is if you have average baseball skills.
Thanks for the information. It sounds like a pay to play system. It was just interesting some of the claims they make on their web site as to how many players they have gotten college scholarships and pro contracts.
I dont' question that they have helped many players out. When I was at the tournament they were taking video of players up close during warm ups, between innnings, etc... I am sure putting together profiles and what not on these players. I am also certain that those kids paid a lot more to play in that tourney than mine did. Those coaches for under armor and baseball factory probably have many contacts throughout the baseball world which also helps. It is not always how good you are but who you know and who is willing to help you. Then of course taking advantage of the opportunity when it presents itself.
