JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 4, 2005) - The East Tennessee State baseball team showcased their talent for scouts from several major league organizations at the team's annual Scout Day, Monday afternoon from Cardinal Park in Johnson City, Tenn.

           

First, each Buccaneer player ran a 60-yard dash for the scouts in attendance. Next, outfielders threw from right field to third base and to home and infielders took pre-game infield practice. All hitters then took batting practice followed by an inter-squad scrimmage.

 

"This was an exciting day," said senior outfielder Shane Byrne.  "It's great to play in front of major league scouts, and see where you are.  We all want to show all our tools off in front of these guys."

 

Head coach Tony Skole was pleased with both his team's performance and the scout's turnout.  "Today was a very good day for our baseball program," he said. "I thought that many of our players had good days and were quite impressive.  We had a nice turnout of major league scouts as well as a representative from the Major League Baseball Scouting Bureau.  Scout Day is great for the area scouts because they can get an up close look at our players. Professional scouting is very difficult to figure out, but when the dust settles I believe we could have as many as three to six players drafted from this year's roster."
