Back when Brian Boles was playing junior college baseball, he had a coach that was an important teacher and role model.
"[He] helped me build a foundation for my game and helped develop me as a player and a young man," said Boles, who went on to star as an all-conference performer at the four-year institution Elizabeth City State University.
Today, as the scouting coordinator for the Urban Baseball Experience, the Baltimore native is trying to pass on that same knowledge and instruction to a new generation of young urban ball players.
"You have to set up an environment where these young men can develop and create the structure so they can perform to the best of their abilities," Boles explained.
As scouting coordinator, Boles is tasked with developing an effective evaluation system and successfully implementing it during UBE's various showcase events. After putting players through a system of drills he is able to assess each player's skill set and grade each aspect of their game using a custom designed grading scale.
"It starts with giving them a professional evaluation and not just basing it off of stats," he said. "We're finding out what the pros think about these kids."
Its easy for Boles to find out what the pros think - he is entering his fifth year as a professional scout for the Detroit Tigers, and has the American League Championship ring to prove it.
"Being able to take part in the championship run that the Tigers had last year was an excellent experience. Competing for a World Series was awesome."
After a hip injury derailed his professional baseball aspirations, Boles decided to get into coaching in order to stay connected to the game he loves. In 2005 he became the head coach of St. Francis Academy in Baltimore, where he had been a member of the inaugural baseball team as a high schooler. At the time of his hiring, the school had not won a single game in five years. Within four years as head coach, Boles led St. Francis to a league championship.
It is this expertise in player development and evaluation that allows Boles to aide UBE in its mission to connect prospective players with college programs. Having been through the process himself, he is aware of the difficulties searching for the right school can be.
"The college placement process is a vary difficult one. If you don't have the information or don't have the right advocates pushing for you, you'll get lost in the shuffle."
By identifying each player's strengths and weaknesses, Boles and UBE are able to help them find the school that matches their abilities and provides the best opportunities to succeed in life.
