Current college baseball players, college baseball coaches and family members, players recently released from Major League organizations, and others who want to have one more chance at pro baseball often contact this site (and other sites) looking for information on independent baseball tryouts. They also ask about what it takes to make an independent baseball team.
A new interview series has come out which addresses virtually every question which prospective players and their coaches & families have about independent baseball. Recorded interviews include those with independent baseball managers, coaches, directors of player development, general managers, and independent baseball media.
The website is http://www.IndependentBaseballTryouts.net
Even though most of the questions we receive are about tryouts, and many of the searches in Google revolve around tryouts, all of the experts interviewed agree that most players are not prepared enough about the business and lifestyle changes of professional baseball. These interviews help players learn what they need to know before attending an independent baseball league tryout or another pro minor league baseball open tryout.
If you run a baseball-related website, forum, blog, or other website (related to pro baseball or college baseball) then know that there is an affiliate program where you have an incentive to refer the interviews. Use the contact e-mail on the http://www.IndependentBaseballTryouts.net website for more information. The process to become an affiliate is free to you if your state allows it.
