Scott Hillier

Former Australian Baseball League General Manager, Surfers Paradise Baseball Club Teammate and Division 1 Team Coordinator
Scott_hillier@icloud.com

Kaleb is an outstanding guy and an exceptional performer on the field. Leading the recruiting for Surfers Paradise Baseball in Australia we have historically gone with referrals and known products from current and former teammates. Kaleb is one of the first guys we sourced directly from BBJO who we had no history with. After a face time call, we knew he was the guy we wanted and we were not disappointed. On the field he broke many records and you will see in his stats how well he pitched against some good competition. His stuff is electric from multiple angles, keeping hitters guessing.

What sets Kaleb apart from other imports I have seen is his ability to quickly assimilate to the culture of the team, culture of the country and the way of life. Immediately upon arriving he was eager to help out wherever he could, coaching, field work, volunteering and working for local companies. He truly made a difference to our club culture for the better and left his expertise on our youth making them better players for the future.

I have no hesitation recommending Kaleb for any team that is seeking a quality pitcher who will dominate. He is going to be an incredible asset to any team both on and off the field.

I'm glad to hear that Kaleb is trying to stay in the game. He had some pre-draft workouts but nothing panned out for him unfortunately. I guess that's the way it goes when you get labeled as the really good "college pitcher" and you make it to your senior season.

Kaleb is an absolutely outstanding young man and a great worker. His family is fantastic and he follows suit - strong morals, excelled in the classroom, excelled socially, and did just about everything you could ask for on the pitcher's mound for two years. He was the Sun Belt ERA champion as a senior and was also an NCCSIA All-State selection. Recently, he also raised almost $1,500 and was able to donate 24 inches of hair to Children With Hair Loss. Whatever Kaleb puts his mind to for the rest of his life, he will succeed.

Kaleb Bowman would be a great candidate to play overseas. Not only is he a talented player, he is an outstanding young man with a great demeanor for the demands of international play. He has the personality to relate with others and the willingness to help those who would benefit from his personal experience. I was fortunate enough to play a year in South America and 2 in Italy, I saw the guys who struggled being in another country and can assure you that Kaleb would adapt quickly and lead confidently. Kaleb Bowman is the kind of young man that you want involved with your program.
