ROCKIES SCOUT TEAMS
Under the direction of the Colorado Rockies organization, their scouting department and Diamond Club Baseball, the Colorado Rockies Scout Team program has become one of the premier development and exposure experiences in the country. The purpose of this program is to provide deserving high school players with the opportunity to develop and showcase their skills in front of college coaches and professional scouts as well as prepare them for the collegiate and/or professional levels of baseball.
The Colorado Rockies Scout Teams are managed and coached by members of the Colorado Rockies scouting staff and Diamond Club Baseball. The teams are comprised of some of he very best talent in the state of Colorado and surrounding areas as selected by members of the Colorado Rockies scouting department. We are looking for players who have great character, ability, strong work ethic, are serious about their development and aspire to play the game at higher levels. These qualities not only serve players well on the field, but they are attributes that will enable players to have success in other present and future endeavors.
Since the inception of the program in 2011, all Senior members of the Scout Team have received opportunities to continue their baseball careers at either the collegiate or professional levels.
