BU Baseball holds Pro Day
10/1/2013 (Updated 8:07:46 PM)VESTAL -- The Bearcats Baseball team held its annual scouting day Tuesday. Pro scouts came out to see what some of the BU players can do.
28 Bearcats participated in running, fielding and pitching drills as they hoped to impress the scouts and have a shot at becoming the school's next big name.
For some, it's their first chance to be seen. For others like Mike Urbanski, they are already on the professional radar. The junior reliever closed for the Amsterdam Mohawks of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League in the summer of 2013 and he knows just what it takes to impress the scouts.
"Just go out there and not try to do too much, just not overpower. Do what you can and just show off what you've got. I had a good summer. Had a good time down there, good team. I come here, I just want to do the same thing. Continue through the fall, winter during conditioning and go right into the spring and just continue doing what I'm doing," says Urbanski.
As for Head Coach Tim Sinicki, he thinks days like Tuesday are just as beneficial for the scouts as they are the players since the scouts get to see talent that's not normally showcased on a national level.
Sinicki says, "Everyone's going to know about the best players down at Clemson, NC State or University of Miami. But to find kids at mid major programs in the Northeast like at Binghamton, I think that's where they can really look good."
BU Baseball's next fall event is the team's annual Prospect Camp, which will be held on October 19.
