Scouts Using Radar Guns To Determine Pitch Speed

The Major League Scouting Bureau is an organization dedicated to scouting baseball players around North America and presenting the information to the MLB.  What they do is put on tryout camps all across Canada and the US sponsored by territorial scouts from the Scouting Bureau.  These scouts work for the MLB and all 30 major league organizations.  You have to be at least 16 years old to participate in one of the tryout camps and all you need to bring is your ball bag and gear.  Tryouts are free of charge, however transportation fees are those of the participant.  In my opinion the only downfall of these tryouts is the fact that you cannot tryout at more then one position, you have to pick your best one.  Overall, these MLB Camps are one hell of an oppertunity for you as a ball player if you are invited to one because you will be showcased infront of up to 30 MLB scouts.  If you do well at a camp..you are now a prospect.
