How to Make a Recruiting Video for College Baseball Coaches

If you’re looking to play college baseball and you plan on emailing coaches, it will always help to send a video of yourself to the coach. NCAA, NJCAA and NAIA coaches are always looking for new players and sending a video of yourself can be very beneficial for them. It’s important to have a video with useful footage so college coaches have an idea of your skill level.

Pitcher's video

A pitcher's video should provide coaches with footage of you throwing from the windup and stretch. When creating the video you should shoot about 5-6 pitches from both sides of the mound (back side & front side) as well as the back and front (behind you and behind the catcher/target). You should throw all your pitches at least 3-4 times. This will give the coach an idea of what your strengths are and what you need to improve on. When shooting from the front and behind, try to have the result of the pitch in focus so the coach can see your accuracy. It’s not necessary to have a radar gun in the video but telling the coach how hard you throw would help. The coach will have an idea from your video what your velocity may be. The length of the video should be no longer than 3-4 minutes.
