College Recruiting Service
Since 1997, Pro Prospects has helped more than 1,000 high school baseball and softball players reach their dream of playing in college. In 2015, Pro Prospects teamed up with national scouting service Prep Baseball Report– NY and PA and has become a hub for the Greater Hudson Valley in New York and Northeast Pennsylvania.
Through this collaboration, we run a series of Prep Baseball Report exposure events each year, offer Individual Player Evaluations (IPE’s) at both our NY and PA facility, giving our athletes comprehensive national exposure and the best recruiting opportunities in the region.

About Prep Baseball Report
Since its inception in 2005, the Prep Baseball Report has evolved into one of the country’s biggest and most respected independent scouting services, with a singular focus of providing comprehensive coverage in every state we they’re in. The mission of the Prep Baseball Report is to promote high school baseball and, ultimately, help prep athletes achieve their dreams of playing baseball at the next level.
Prep Baseball Report events are designed to give players the maximum exposure from college coaches. All players at events will be videotaped, and the edited performance will be hosted on the website. Their multimedia platforms and events work in tandem, ultimately creating the most powerful source of high school baseball promotion in each state.
All Players receive:
- An Online Profile with verified statistics

Additionally, all subsequent stories written about a prospect will be linked to the player’s profile, ultimately creating a one-stop shop for recruiters. Top players are listed in our statewide player rankings and overall rankings.
Our professionally-edited skill videos allow you to target schools in your athletic & academic range with footage featuring you at your best .Our softball players will receive a link and have their footage uploaded on our YouTube channel, neatly collected under their own playlist. The playlist can easily be shared with college coaches or individual videos can be embedded into a player or team’s websites.

My son is playing D-I baseball and getting a top notch education and it’s all thanks to Pro Prospects. At an early age, I enrolled him in Pro Prospects and they transformed him into a complete athlete. From honing his skills both mentally and physically, to providing him the opportunity to meet coaches and show his skills at college showcases, Pro Prospects gave him the extra edge to not only be seen, but also be offered a variety of college opportunities. I highly recommend and my many thanks to Steve, Jed and the staff at Pro Prospects.

The recruiting process for a scholarship baseball player can be overwhelming for both the parents and the player. Its hard to get prospective schools to see a player’s skills, even when they play on travel teams and in tournaments. Our son started college showcases at Pro Prospects early in high school, which allowed him to get out in front of coaches and get on their “watch lists.”
The summer of Jesse’s junior year, Steve Pinto put together a professional video showcasing Jesse’s pitching, along with a sports profile and letter of recommendation that we used to target the schools Jesse was interested in. This was invaluable in securing scholarship offers.
Also as part of the College Marketing Service, Steve sat down with the three of us and explained the steps and what to expect during the recruitment process – everything from what questions to expect from coaches, how to best answer them, and what questions to ask. He also prepared us for the hardships of the recruiting process. Steve’s program was very helpful for all of us and helped Jesse to achieve his goal of a Division I scholarship”.
