For the first time in program history, Binghamton University will host a Baseball Scout Day, scheduled for Wednesday, October 9 at the baseball complex on campus. With several Major League Baseball scouts expected to be in attendance, head coach Tim Sinicki’s squad will begin their workout at 4 p.m.

“This event will provide our players with an excellent opportunity to showcase their skills in front of professional scouts who are responsible for our area,” Sinicki said.

The workout will include position players running the 60 twice; position players fielding and throwing from predetermined areas; pre-game infield/outfield; catchers throwing to second base; and a “live” pitchers vs. hitters session with each pitcher facing four hitters and each hitter having two at-bats.

“We’re running the scout day just like these scouts run their try-out camps,” Sinicki said. “This format gives them the best opportunity to make their decisions based on their specific criteria.”

In the last two years, three Bearcats baseball players have signed professional contracts, including pitcher Jeff Montani, who is currently competing in the Baltimore Orioles’ instructional league in Sarasota, Fla.

“In recent years, more and more scouts have been in attendance at our games as well as practices,” Sinicki said. “We were encouraged to hold this special event by some area scouts who feel we have players who have the ability to play pro baseball.”
