At Big Time Coach, we use our apps for each-and-every Game, Practice, Tryout, and Draft that we participate in. Our apps are continually used and refined to put the tools we've come to rely on in your hands.
Big Time Coach Baseball Tryout and Draft Management brings you over 30 years of baseball evaluation insights and baseball draft strategy right to your iPad. This year you can throw away the tryout forms and spreadsheets and instead bring Big Time Coach Baseball Tryout App directly to the field. We have developed another easy to use tool for Baseball Coaches looking to assemble the best players for their team. Our baseball app helps you rate and grade players on performance, skills, attitude and any attribute you look for as a coach with customizable fields.
After the league tryout or team tryout is complete you can study your ratings and rank your players based on the skills or positions you are looking for on your team. Once your rankings are complete you can now get ready for your draft. With Big Time Coach Baseball Tryout you can take all of your player evaluations into the draft room using the Baseball Draft Feature.
The Baseball Draft Feature will allow you to conduct a live draft for your team with all the player data from the tryouts. No more sifting through your paper notes, everything you need is right in the app! Create your team during the draft, while tracking the selection of all the other players in the draft. When the draft is complete, export your team to the Big Time Coach Practice Planner App and Big Time Coach Pitch Counter App and you are ready for the season!
Big Time Coach Baseball Tryout Features include:
- Pre-set skill categories and evaluation fields for rating that are user customizable.
- Age qualifiers to help you track the number of players on your team to assist you with age requirements.
- Note fields to capture any player insights.
- Favorite settings to ensure you don't miss the special players.
- Player Evaluation Form that gives you an overall view of each player.
- Skill and Position filters helping you quickly sort and identify what player you need on your team.
- Full import / export functionality to support backups, updates, and sharing of evaluation data between users.
- Included in the Baseball Tryout App is our Help Viewer developed by the Big Time Coach team. Making it easy for any user to quickly understand how to use and operate the app.
- Full support for new iPad Pro including 'split screen' views.
- There so many more features in this app it's hard to list them all!

Big Time Coach, Helping Players, One Coach At A Time!
Based on feedback from our coaches, we have added a new way to display player lists in the evaluation view.
You may now select 'ABC' in that view to display players by last name + first name, and select a group of players based on first letter of their last name.
This makes it easier for coaches in leagues where a list of players is distributed before the tryout and imported to the app. Of course player groups are still supported for those who prefer that option.
We hope you enjoy the changes!

Easy to use
It looks like they have done an update and the issue with rotating the iPad and loosing the player you were on is gone. Give the App a try, just spend 10-20mins at home before tryouts getting to know it and it will save you time in the long run.
I downloaded this App the morning before our Little League tryouts and used it that morning on my iPad. It took me about 10mins at home to get used to how to get around the app after reading the very simple instructions. I then used it at the tryouts and after about 10 players I had it down and was able to use the app with No Problem. The thing I like the best is when I came home within about 15 more minutes of work; I had rated the 87 players that I saw that day at tryouts. This App really made rating and ranking the players this year easy. Much easier than using paper and pencil as I have for the last few years. I would highly recommend this App, it will save you lots of time. One drawback, sometime when I would move the iPad the App would put me on a different screen, and once I put the iPad horizontal again, I would have to scroll and find the player I was rating. Not a big issue, but something you need to look out for.
I found this app easy to use and very helpful.
During my draft this year the other coaches struggled with multiple papers I was able to keep up just using the app on my iPad. Like the other review mentioned just take a few minutes before your draft to play with it.
All in all very useful.
Not worth it at all
I was hopeful that this would eliminate the need for a clipboard, but it doesn't even come close. $5.99 is outrageous for what you get with this app.
