Vesta, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Major League baseball is set to begin it's postseason. Closer to home, players at Binghamton University have the chance to show off for big league scouts.

Players on this year's team get to show off their abilities in front of several major league scouts.

They go through several drills to show off their talents at the plate, in the field, on the base paths and on the mound.

And with several players from the Bearcats being drafted the last few years, today is an important audition for several players.

"The scouts know when we host something like this, they're generally going to see some quality players and this is where they make their money and earn their stripes. Its easy to find guys down at Miami or NC State or Clemson but to find these kids at the mid-major level like here in Binghamton is where I think they can really make a name for themselves as scouts," says Bearcats coach Tim Sinicki.

"It's tough because you get a little adrenaline rush, kind of try to do too much so you just have to do what you do best. Go out there, actually have fun and just hope everything works out," says pitcher Jack Rogalla.

Binghamton University has been giving their players this opportunity since they moved to the Division One level.
