CMU hosts its first MLB Scout Day

Colorado Mesa University will host its first Major League Baseball Scout Day on Saturday, Oct. 21, at both Bergman and Suplizio fields.

Though not unheard of, it is uncommon for an MLB scout day to be held at a Division II school, said Chris Hanks, CMU’s head baseball coach.

“This is a highly prestigious event that is usually reserved for Division I schools,” Hanks said. “This is a fantastic opportunity for our student-athletes and we are honored that Major League Baseball is coming to our beautiful campus to run this event.” 

Major League scout days provide student-athletes the opportunity to display their skills to professional scouts in hopes of being selected in the MLB Amateur Draft that occurs every June.

The student-athletes will go through a battery of drills beginning at noon at Bergman Field. The day will conclude with a single seven-inning scrimmage at Suplizio Field with first pitch at 1:30pm.

Professional scouts from all 30 Major League Baseball teams have been invited to the event. Teams that have confirmed include the Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago White Sox, St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Confirmations continue to come in as the event draws closer.
