        Dear Players, Scouts, Coaches, Parents and Media:

        I’m sponsoring this league so that local kids get the exposure they need.

        Teams don’t pay to play in this league.

        All games will be at a central location in Philadelphia-Sunoco Field, which is just minutes from Citizens Bank Park.

        I’ve experienced every level of baseball. I’ve been an All City Player, a College All Star, an Olympian, a first round Major League draft pick, a Major League Player, TV and radio baseball analyst and commentator. I have a daily MLB sponsored show on radio and internet TV.

        I know baseball talent when I see it, and I know there’s plenty of under-exposed talent in this area.

        So, in an effort to give our local kids a fair shot, I’ve started the Marzano Scout League.

        Hopefully, this will be a place where professional scouts, college coaches, parents, players and just spectators will come to spend a few weekends and summer nights watching, evaluating and just enjoying baseball.

                                                                Thanks,
        

                                                                John Marzano

Professional Scouts and College Coaches
Introduction to the Scout League

        Welcome to the 2nd season of the Marzano Scout League.

        Last year was a resounding success with games attended by numerous professional scouts and college coaches. We’ve already received inquiry from coaches and scouts for this years media guide with rosters and schedule.

        Professional Scouts and College Coaches This league, is designed to make your job easier, and to give you a head start in identifying the best baseball talent in the Delaware Valley. The more you support the league by personally attending games or sending your associate scouts or recruiting assistants, the more likely the area’s best players will gravitate to play in the league in seasons to come. Essentially, by your game presence you’ll dictate who comes to play.

        This season will present many of the areas best 2009 and younger high school players.

        This league will be an opportunity not only to see and identify rising seniors and juniors, but also preview the best up and coming younger players.

        Local college coaches are given the opportunity to get in early on local talent

        Each team will be required to take pregame infield/outfield.

        The teams were put together, in my opinion, by the best baseball people in the community with teams from Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Montgomery and Delaware counties and South Jersey. This year rosters have been expanded and two new teams Allstar Baseball Academy (Mike Manning and Creighton Gubanich) and All American Baseball Academy (Joe Kerrigan, Jr. and Bob Vivian) will field teams. Bandits Baseball, Philadelphia Senators National Team, Brooklawn American Legion and Delco Diamonds return.

        Scouts and Coaches:    Cover this league now. This scout league is the place to start, and follow up your search for prospective players.

        I’ll be contacting Major League Scouting Directors myself and I’ll try to touch base with college coaches. At the very least, I hope to see and speak with you at many of this summer’s games.

What is and why a Scout League

        This is a high school Woodbat League for 2009 Graduates and younger. In Florida, California, Arizona and Texas there are scout teams, that is, teams put together by major league Area Scouts intended to develop and showcase high school players who have professional and college aspirations.

        There are no scout teams in this area. College players have college summer leagues like the Cape Cod league to showcase their talent for professional teams. Therefore, John Marzano has designed this scout league as a program to give local players the benefit of a scout team, in a “Cape Cod” type high school league.

        The league is comprised of six Delaware Valley quality baseball programs playing a 17-20 game schedule at a central venue- Sunoco Field in Philadelphia.

        The league will begin with morning to dusk games over Memorial Day Weekend. The league runs through July.

        This media guide provides rosters and league schedule to Major League Area Scouts, College Coaches and local news outlets.

        The league is a program that focuses attention on Delaware Valley players. Hopefully, it will aid colleges in recruiting local players and provide area professional scouts with early looks at promising local players.
