Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can my friend and I use the same subscription to upload our videos?
A: No. Each subscription will only cover one individual. If multiple athletes have uploaded videos on one profile the content will be jumbled. When college coaches or scouts use our site they are expecting to search and view one athlete per profile. This makes it easier for them to view athletes and makes it easier for you to be seen! These profiles are to be used as a reflection of yourself and any form of falsifying information or acting as someone else will result in termination of the subscription.
Q: Is this site worth $100.00 to subscribe to?
A: Of course! Once you sign up you will have access to instructional videos for hitting, pitching, catching, infield, outfield, base running, and more! Instructional videos alone can typically cost hundreds of dollars, but we want to provide access to everyone and do so affordably. In addition to instructional videos, you will also have access to articles and advice written by college coaches, professional athletes, scouts, athletic trainers, and strength coaches. The biggest thing we offer is our mentors. Once you log on you can reach out to our professional staff and get advice about how to achieve your dreams!
Q: What if I don't want other subscribers to see my videos and profile?
A: Not a problem. We provide strict privacy settings that you can set on your profile page. We want our subscribers to feel secure and be in control of what others can see. This is a positive learning environment and we will not allow any avenue for negativity or putdowns. Our Pros will be the only ones giving reviews, feedback, and comments.
Q: How can I get a professional athlete to come speak to my school, team, or community group?
A: We have many Pros who love to share their knowledge and experiences with others. We encourage you to reach out to us by using our Contact Us page to receive details.
Q: What if I have questions about the drills beyond what is explained in the videos?
A: If you have more questions about any of the drills or want further explanation about any part of baseball education, please feel free to ask questions when you upload your videos or send us an email using our contact page. Also, our forum is a great place to discuss sports specific topics.
Q: Is my profile being seen by college coaches and professional scouts?
A: We give all eligible college coaches and professional scouts access to our site to search for potential athletes. Unlike many other sites, we offer free access to coaches and scouts. It is our goal to get athletes seen and want it to be easy for them to log on and search for athletes like you.
Q: Why can’t I always see the name of who has reviewed my video?
A: We do our best to ensure the privacy and protection of all our basebypros.com subscribers, and we provide that same privacy and protection to our scouts because of work related requests. If a Professional Athlete reviews your video their name will be present, but if a scout reviews your video it will typically be listed as Professional Scout.
Q: How long will it take to receive a video review response by a Pro?
A: This process can take up to a few days. Your video first has to go through the screening process to get posted to your profile. We make sure that the content being posted is apporpiate prior to it showing up on your page. Next your video will appear in our "locker room" where it will wait to be picked up by one of the Pros. While we have many Pros reviewing videos, they are also busy on the field, so this and the number of videos in our locker room will determine how quickly your video will be reviewed.
Q: How long will it take to see my uploaded videos on my profile without review by Pros?
A: Your video should appear on your profile within 24 hours of upload. Before your video can be posted to your profile, our screener has to view your video to ensure the content is appropriate and the video is of good quality. Once the screener has accepted your video it will be posted to your profile.
Q: What if I want to have my videos reviewed by the same professional each time?
A: In order to send your videos back to you in a timely manner we can't allow requests for specific professionals. Our Pros are very busy and if every athlete sends their videos to one specific Pro, it could take a very long time for the Pro to respond. We are very confident in the Pros we allow to give responses, and you should be too.
Q: Why should I set up a profile and pay $2.50-$7.50 to upload videos?
A: You have the opportunity to upload your own videos to your profile and can choose to have your videos reviewed by one of our Pros and receive personal feedback. Not only will you receive advice, knowledge, and feedback from Pros, but college coaches and professional scouts have the ability to view your profile and videos if you choose.
