A Great First

Fresh out of Boot Camp, my first, I was overcome with the energy during the Pitch Pit, where more than 40 Catchers from the best companies in the industry heard 10-minute pitches from Boot Camp attendees. Some attendees got to sit with up to 10 catchers. The excitement on the part of the pitchers for the unbelievable face-to-face access they were getting and the “pleasant surprise at the quality of the pitches” on the part of the Catchers, made all our hard work worthwhile. We will keep our eyes open for any deals that have been made there, and we’ll highlight them on our site.
