Let's get you acquainted with our new site we've been working on specifically catered to the player with college coaches/scouts, parents, club coaches, high school coaches, and fans in mind as well.

This website offers a unique social media component to help you follow all things baseball. As you scroll down the main page, you'll notice "The Line". This is our news feed (All Activity) which includes all posts and updates in the Five Tool universe:

· Player video uploads from Five Tool staff in our events and high school/JUCO coverage

· Player YouTube and Twitter uploads (links) by the player

· Player commitment tracker

· Scout and staff notes

From here, you can click on "My Feed" to customize your updates and "My Posts" where you'll find things posted from yourself and about you.
