Oh yeah, one other thing. If a scout sees you do something once, it absolutely does not mean that with coaching you will be able to develop that. It could have just been blind luck. Your example of a ball player hitting a 450 jack and a scout seeing power? Trust me, sometimes you just get good wood on the right pitch in the right spot (or for the pitcher, the absolute wrong spot). Once is luck. Twice is a possibility. Three times, well...then you might have a trend. Scouts aren't dumb.
