WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- The Palm Beach Atlantic baseball team has been busy this fall hitting the practice field as well as playing in a few select games as they continue their preparations for the official spring season in 2014. One of the traditions of the past few years has been Scout Day which puts the Sailfish players in front of a host of professional scouts from Major League Baseball (MLB).
This year’s Scout Day attracted representatives from 14 major league organizations as each PBA player showcased their skills in a variety of workouts and fundamental work.
The event allowed not only the players to show off their skill sets but also for the PBA coaching staff to interact with the scouts and establish important relationships for the years to come.
“We had an excellent turnout today with 14 major league organizations represented,” said PBA head coach Kent Bottenfield. It’s a sign that we are starting to generate excitement in the baseball community as well as building a reputation for having a high level of player in our program”.
The Sailfish will officially kickoff the 2014 season at Roger Dean Stadium as they will take on Palm Beach County rival Lynn University at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla.
