A former college walk-on baseball player turned pro baseball player. After retiring I coached high school baseball for 10 years. During that time I created a youth baseball non-profit that worked with hundreds of kids in games, practices, tournaments, and events.
My name is Joel Hartman, and I'm the co-founder of Prospect Dugout. Over the course of that time I realized that the same things I suffered with 10 years prior still existed. With all the college showcases and events available, I was still seeing kids that were struggling with gaining exposure and capturing the attention of coaches and scouts.
Unless you're a top prospect throwing 90+ mph or a hitter with big-time power, it's going to take some time and effort to get noticed. Attending multple showcase events can be costly, so there had to be a better way.
That's when Prospect Dugout was born: a platform for digital exposure for baseball players trying to get recruited for college. Prospect Dugout reaches over 1 million people each week through our content.
