PLAYER EVALUATION: THE
IMPORTANCE OF A
COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEM
Mike Hill
Head Baseball Coach
Lawrence Free State High School
WHY IS A COMPREHENSIVE
EVALUATON SYSTEM IMPORTANT?
1. Permits coaches to make best decisions for
their PROGRAM:
* Who should make the team?
* Who should play at what level?
* Who should play what position?
A system provides your staff with the best
insight towards making these decisions.
WHY IS A COMPREHENSIVE
EVALUATON SYSTEM IMPORTANT?
2. Permits coaches to make best decisions for
their PLAYERS:
* What skills do I need to work on?
* What do I do well?
* Why am I playing this position?
An evaluation is the best foundation for having a
productive discussion with your players
WHY IS A COMPREHENSIVE
EVALUATON SYSTEM IMPORTANT?
3. Permits coaches to properly COMMUNICATE
WITH COLLEGE COACHES AND SCOUTS:
* Why can your player play at my level?
* What are positive and negatives?
* Quantifies your conversation
An easily communicated evaluation system
provides coaches/scouts with your best insights
WHY IS A COMPREHENSIVE
EVALUATON SYSTEM IMPORTANT?
4. Permits coaches to properly COMMUNICATE
WITH PLAYERS, PARENTS AND ADMINISTRATION:
* How could you cut my kid?
* Why is this parent calling my office?
* Coach: Why did I get cut?
A comprehensive evaluation makes the difficult
conversations easier to have
CRITERIA FOR A SUCCESSFUL
EVALUATION SYSTEM
1. Is the same PROCESS:
* all players have the same evaluation
2. Is DATA DRIVEN:
* It quantifies the evaluation
3. It MINIMIZES SUBJECTIVITY:
* allows for opinions but from the same language
4. It is CLEARLY COMMUNICATED:
* everyone knows what to expect
5. It is EASILY ACCESSIBLE:
* can quickly and privately be shared with others
PROCESS
• Evaluations primarily are based upon the 5 Tools:
1. Speed
2. Hitting
3. Hitting with Power
4. Arm Strength
5. Fielding
It’s easier to explain and harder to argue with
numbers

DATA DRIVEN
THE IMPORTANCE OF A DETAILED RUBRIC
1. Quantifies and streamlines varying opinions
of coaches: good, ok, great, bad to a number.
2. Allows a player to be properly evaluated
against his peers:
3. Grades players on a score of 1-8, with 4 being
the average, varsity, high school player

All coaches work from the same rubric and
framework:
1. Coaches speak the same language.
2. Coaches look for the same things.
3. Evaluations are not as varied.
If all coaches work from the same rubric, a more
solidified evaluation will occur

WHY IS A COMPREHENSIVE

* Who should play what position?
A system provides your staff with the best

GENERAL RULES
30+ = All-State Player/Pro-Style Prospect
25+ = Varsity Player/College Potential
20-25 = Varsity Type Player
18-22 = Junior Varsity Type Player
16-22 = C Team Type Player
15 - = Not Likely to Make the Team
