"Scout Day" attracts Major League Baseball representatives
"It's a great opportunity to have our players showcase their skills to the professional scouts," Sinicki said. "I cerrtainly believe we have players in our program who have the ability to play at the professional level, and this type of event is important for the area and regional scouts to see them perform and get to know them better."
The players were put through various drills including a 60-yard dash, defensive work from their positions, on-field batting practice and pitchers performing 3-4-minute bullpen sessions off the game mound.
Organizations represented included Baltimore, Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Houston, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and the Major Legue Scouting Bureau.
Also on hand was former BU standout Jeff Montani, a 2001 draft choice of the Baltimore Orioles. After his junior season at Binghamton, Montani was signed by Orioles scout Jim Howard, who was also in attendance.
Binghamton baseball has had nine players sign professional contracts, including three in the last three years.
