Awesome Web site

Ever since the Web site Cal Leaguers stopped being updated, I’ve been looking for a good site to see video footage of prospects and today I found a gold mine. I was killing some time on YouTube and stumbled upon an awesome feed that coincides with an equally-awesome Web site.

After enjoying the draft videos prior to the 2007 draft, Drew Samuelson though about forming a site with video footage of minor leaguers. In 2008, the Seattle native relocated to southern California began filming Cal League games and Pacific Prospect Report was formed. He caught nearly every team and also got to a couple Pacific Coast League, Northwest League and Arizona Fall League games.

He’s back in Seattle now, in grad school at Seattle U studying Sports Administration and Leadership. He’s hoping to use the Web site, along with his education and experience (five years at Warner Brothers) to begin a career in sports entertainment.

There are a lot of videos on the site already and Drew said he is currently in the process of adding more of his Cal League footage from this season, which will almost double the size of his video library. So, if you’re looking for footage of Carlos Triunfel, Greg Halman, Michael Saunders or many, many more, head over to Pacific Prospect Report. You won’t be disappointed!

    Glad to see Drew’s work getting promoted again. He ran into technical problems some time ago and hadn’t been updating for a few months. It’s good to know that issue was resolved and the site’s back up and running. It’s a tremendous resource for all of us.

    Triunfel reminds me of A-rod.

    His feet look too slow to stay at short. Love his arm though.

    Yeah, sadly PPR crashed under the weight of its own video. I got the site reconstructed and back online within about a month.

    The complete Cal League library ought to be about 200 videos and (re-)published within a week or so. I have 3.5 games to still cut and publish, including Lancaster (Red Sox), High Desert (Ms), Stockton (As), Lake Elsinore (Padres), and Modesto (Rockies).

    Between now and Cactus League the plan is to publish bundles of video of select prospects (e.g. Triunfel, Trumbo, etc.) with new slow motion clips.

    Post of the year.

    I love the videos and would have never found them on my own.
