BAWS 2020 - COVID-19 UPDATES

UPDATE 8/8/20

With Covid-19 regulations/guidelines put in place by the state of California and San Joaquin County, BAWS 2020 will have two phases. The workout/testing portion was held July 10/11 at Islanders Field in Lathrop. The simulated competition phase will now take place September 5-7 at Islanders Field in Lathrop. We also will be live streaming BAWS 2020 via https://pbr.sportschannel.media/

BAWS Workout/Testing information

For the players who attended the BAWS testing/workout days, your videos/stats have been edited and they can be found in two locations. One is at the BAWS website, in your team roster link (each is linked below). The other location is in your PBR Profile.

Coast/Silver
Delta/Orange
East Bay/Royal
North Bay/Green
South Bay/Red
Valley/Lt Blue

For the PBR video/subscriptions, here is the info you need; https://www.prepbaseballreport.com/monthly-website-subscription.html

That's the link for the monthly subscription which is not visible on the website. Use code summervids2020 and that will get you the first month for $.01 (that's one penny). After the first month it's $10/month. You can get into your profile in that first month and have the ability to view videos in your profile, rankings, other premium content as well.

There is also the Prospect PLUS subscription that allows you to download the video (which you don't need to do as I believe you can download it from the BAWS site). With that subscription you can also notify schools of your interest, update your own calendar for your scheduled HS/travel team games, etc.

That subscription is $300/year. The code prospect25 gives you 25% off ($75) for that subscription level. Here is the link to Prospect Plus:

Highlights from BAWS 2019

BAWS is the longest running showcase of it's kind in Northern California (established 2004) and PBR is the most respected independent scouting resource in all of amateur baseball in the nation.

Over 900 colleges and pro scouts have subscriptions to PBR, while 35 former BAWSr's have reached the big leagues and nearly 800 former BAWSr's have gone on to D1 baseball, with hundreds others playing at other four-year level programs. That just means we've seen a lot of talented kids over the years and have been trusted to contribute to their journey.

PARTICIPATION OPTIONS


Islanders Field at River Islands

PITCHER ONLY
- Face a minimum of 9 hitters. Some pitchers, maybe even many, aren't as stretched out for long outings due to how this spring/summer have been. The goal will still to get each PO 9 batters, but if a pitcher is laboring to the point where I assess that injury becomes a risk, I reserve the right to keep that player healthy and end an outing early if need be.

* Note: POs... We know that many pitchers are also contributing HS position players but the idea is to showcase the BEST of what you do. When you sign up as a PO, you will NOT be doing the defensive workout or taking BP or playing as a position player in the games, unless you have gained approval from Blaine Clemmens.
 
POSITION PLAYER ONLY
- 60 yard dash, laser timer finish
- Batting practice evaluation (8 swings) 
- Defensive workout evaluation at ONE position 
- Fair and equitable amount of defensive field time during the games, both at your primary position as well as other positions on the field 

2-WAY PLAYER (position player & pitcher)
- 60 yard dash, laser timer finish
- Batting practice evaluation (8 swings) 
- Defensive workout evaluation at ONE position 
- Fair and equitable amount of defensive field time during the games, both at your primary position as well as other positions on the field 
- Pitch to a minimum of 3 batters. It also possible that you will pitch more than that

NOTE: BAWS Director Blaine Clemmens needs to approve participation as a 2-way player
