I have been a high school and college (5 years in the Boise Collegiate Summer League, 2007 BSL Champions and all time winningest coach in BSL history) coach for over 16+. I have also been an associate scout for same 16+ years for numerous MLB clubs and am currently in my second stint with the Cincinnati Reds.
Hey, the Vaqueros invited me to spring training, which actually ends before I get out of school so I won't be able to attend. Andrew Dunn said that I'm in their system and to contact them immediately after graduation so I can throw for them again. You mentioned your team, which team is that?
I'm still looking around at other possibilities so any information you can give me is greatly appreciated.
What does A level and barnstorming mean? What would it be like? What are salaries? I've heard that the league is experiencing financial trouble, is that true? Sorry for all the questions, I'm just interested.
Thanks for the heads up on the league. I was wondering if you could try to give me a non-biased outlook on the league (hard because i know you're involved). How does the league compare with say the Frontier League? How do I go about getting on a team after graduation?
Andy ....you won't make a living from GSB. Go to the new site www.gsbsports.com for more info. We have lots of contacts in the Indy's and Foreign Ball. We do procurement for many teams and we network with many affiliated scouts. You should contact my supe, James Gamble, if you want to make it a full time position. He can be reached at email@example.com
You can easily invite your leaguemates to join the groups you created by going to each group page and clicking the link to invite more to join your group. You can then paste the email addresses from your league rosters and click send. When they create their profile through the email that is generated, they'll automatically be part of the group you invited them to.
I use my league and team pages to post sponsors, notices, photos, etc.
