After parents spend thousands on hitting lessons, personal trainers and tournament travel, a digital resume is a requirement to gain quality exposure

LAKE FOREST, Calif., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Major League Baseball All-Star Game nears, young baseball players everywhere will dream of someday making the all-star team. Parents easily invest more than $1,000 per year from Little League through high school on equipment, team fees and travel to tournaments, reports the National Council of Youth Sports. Those that enlist specialized coaches spend even more. Baseball is the second-most-expensive youth sport (football is the costliest), according to the Huffington Post. It's no wonder that parents now invest in "prospect videos" that showcase their sons' talents on the field in hopes of getting a scholarship or professional contract.

"It's a highly competitive sport," says Anthony Porrazzo, managing director of Baseball Prospect Video LLC, a Lake Forest, CA-based company he co-founded with his brother Nick (known for his role in the movie "Moneyball"). The firm specializes in producing professional quality prospect videos exclusively for baseball players. "When you add up what parents are spending over the years, investing a little more on a digital resume is smart."

Porrazzo, who works at the professional level editing Major League player highlights, says that scouts want to see a player from a variety of angles and in a range of drills. "Game footage shot by mom or dad is one thing," he says, "but scouts want to see how the player moves and handles the ball consistently."

Baseball Prospect Video also hosts an online prospect database exclusively for baseball players. "Rather than sending DVDs to coaches that can get lost or damaged," says Nick Porrazzo, "players can maintain a prospect profile in our database. If they improve their 60-yard time or move up to the next level, they can update their information and then send the link to coaches and scouts. Their profile is always current. It's like LinkedIn for baseball players."

To celebration the upcoming MLB All-Star Game, players can post their own video highlights to the company's prospect database at no charge, though July 15. Players can go to www.baseballprospectvideo.com and click on "Post your own video." After July 15, a subscription costs $9.95 per month.
