With the Under Armour Baseball Factory Tryouts just around the corner on May 12, I decided to talk to a couple former Boise Hawks about their personal experiences with the event.
For Bijan Rademacher it was an eye opening experience. “I would definitely recommend it because it gets you exposure and it opened my eyes to the talent that was around me.”
The Baseball Factory program gives players from age 12 – 18 the opportunity to be discovered and turn their hobby into a successful career. The goal is to move through the Baseball Factory at levels much like the minors of a Major League organization.
The first step is to go through an evaluation at a National tryout like the one being hosted at Memorial Stadium. The players are then placed in the best development program for their individual needs and move up as seen fit.
Baseball factory works on the players from both a physical and mental standpoint taking them through high level training and competition as well as life lessons in baseball IQ, life skills and academic guidance, ultimately molding them into a well rounded athlete for the collegiate level. “Baseball Factory’s vision is to guide both players and parents through the college recruiting process and to professionally train players in order to find a school that is the right fit … both academically and athletically.”
Through pro scout evaluations, player videos, professional instruction, high level competition and ongoing guidance, Baseball Factory is a leader in player development both on and off of the field.
While Dan Vogelbach only attended one event, he says it was a great experience. “I really enjoyed the way things were run, and the people that were a part of it.”
