Professional Scouting Apps for Every Level of Baseball

The Future of Scouting

Scouting technology will continue to grow in importance as the information being managed multiplies, and as the ways to evaluate talent evolve. A scouts ‘fantasy’ would be to have a single, universal device that performs every scouting function: radar gun, stopwatch, super hi-def video camera, augmented reality simulator, data analyzer, report-writer, and communication link.

Sounds far-fetched?

Given the technology already available from companies like Google Glass, Leap Motion, Xbox Connect, the next generation of technology may be coming sooner than you think, and with a trend toward compact, hand-held, hands-free, eye-motion devices.

Sounds expensive?

The cost will be a fraction of the money invested today in top draft picks, free agents, and players acquisition via trades.
