Joshua MacDonald, Recruiting Coordinator, University of Connecticut

“Bobby and the people at Baseball Census are doing yeoman’s work for helping to bring quality scouting and analysis of junior college players to the vast world of four-year college baseball. Being in the Northeast, it can be difficult for us to follow up on players from the heralded CCCAA. Over the past few years I’ve used Baseball Census’ videos and reports to help connect the dots on many junior college players from the Golden State. I highly recommend any four-year baseball program to use this scouting website. You will not be disappointed.”

Brian Karlet, Assistant Coach, Marshall University

“Baseball Census has, in just a short time, already been an invaluable resource for our recruiting efforts. The reports that Bobby has put together, accompanied by video, allow us to see different prospects from all over the country without leaving the office. It is broken down by position so it saves us time, and it’s easily searchable for what our specific needs are. It is something we use often.”

Brett Neffendorf, Recruiting Coordinator/Pitching Coach, Campbellsville University

“Bobby DeMuro has not only given exposure to one of the best talent pools in all of junior college baseball, but he has also created a reliable and accurate resource that all college coaches should be investing in. Bobby is a tireless worker, incredible evaluator of talent, and an extraordinary communicator. Bobby and Baseball Census have strengthened our recruiting classes and become the most reliable and accurate resource we go to for California junior college recruiting.”

Andy Burschinger, Pitching Coach, Chico State

“The videos and reports that Bobby puts together on Baseball Census is a huge resource for our recruiting efforts in the CCCAA. Being up in Northern California it is difficult to see the Southern California teams play throughout the season, but Bobby’s great videos and information on players is an invaluable tool for us to recruit what we are looking for at each position. Every coach should have an account and be appreciative of the great work Bobby does on Baseball Census.”

Josh Handler, Video Coordinator, Oakland Athletics

“There is no denying the value of junior college baseball players to both four-year schools and professional organizations. Unfortunately, information on these athletes has been scarce for too long, and it is a challenge to see many junior college prospects first-hand in what is already one of the busiest times of year for baseball. Bobby and the Baseball Census team have offered a valuable resource with in-depth reports on hundreds of these players. For pro organizations and four-year schools, Baseball Census has become a must-have when evaluating junior college players.”

Collin Crowl, Assistant Coach, California Lutheran University

“Baseball Census has changed the way junior college players are being scouted and recruited. It has become a cornerstone of our recruiting process and how we evaluate potential student athletes. Bobby DeMuro does a phenomenal job with game footage of each player and provides accurate scouting reports that are incredibly important in making a proper decision on potential recruits. This allows our program to see a wide variety of players during our busy season when there is not much time to get away to go watch junior college games. I strongly suggest any college program use Baseball Census as a recruiting tool. Thank you for all your hard work and helping us find difference makers from the junior college level.”

Alex Kocol, Head Coach, Glendale College

“Baseball Census has quickly established itself as the go-to source for information on junior college baseball players in southern California. Not only is Bobby DeMuro a ubiquitous presence at games, his ability to capture high-quality video and perform professional-level analysis are making Baseball Census the standard in player evaluation in our area. As a program we are finding we are able to rely on his objective insights and video content to help our players transfer. For four-year coaches and professional organizations this service is not just invaluable, it is imperative.”

Collin Theroux, Catcher, Oakland Athletics

“Bobby and I have talked for a while about junior college baseball, and what it needs to take the next step forward, and I think he’s hit it right on the head. What Baseball Census has done for junior college baseball is so unique and valuable for both the players and coaches across the level. I remember seeing so many of my teammates and opponents unable to reach a four-year school of their caliber simply because of the lack of scouting and video available on them. Junior college players bring so much value to teams in maturity, experience, and talent. I think this platform will not only allow coaches to see the reports and video necessary for deserving players to move on, but also show high school players that junior college baseball is a viable route to take on their journey to the next level.”

Scott Zine, Recruiting Coordinator, Mt. San Antonio College

“Baseball Census has been an excellent resource and service for our program and our players over the last year. The scouting reports on our players have been accurate, professional and very thorough. It has served as a great recruiting tool when it comes to sending updated video and reports to four-year coaches in the recruiting process. I highly recommend the service Baseball Census provides because the detail with everything is high-end!”

Vince Maiocco, Head Coach, Taft College

“I first met Bobby several years ago while he was working on his book about the Bakersfield Blaze. It became evident right at the beginning that he was passionate about the game of baseball. After he came to several of our games, he posted video and scouting reports on our players. He was spot-on with his player evaluations, and we used his video and reports to help get our sophomores on to the four-year level. Bobby provides a great service to players and coaches with video, stats, and scouting reports. I highly recommend any college program use him as a placement resource.”

Nico Calderaro, Pitching Coach, Pasadena City College

“Baseball Census is an outstanding resource for universities and colleges to easily access thousands of California JuCo players with high-quality video and reports. You’ll find them at ballparks across California every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday working to get kids to the next level.”

Braden Bishop, Outfielder, Seattle Mariners

“I ran across Bobby when I was in the California League in 2016-17. His professionalism struck me right from the start. He had well thought-out questions and he truly learned what type of player I was. He has this unique ability to mesh a players’ view of themselves and his analysis of the player together in a way that provides second-to-none insight, and is always respectful while still holding true to the player’s tools, strengths, and weaknesses. Bobby will sit through 100-degree Bakersfield heat to see guys play, and he’s done it for us countless times. That’s just who he is.”

Wilson Karaman, Senior Writer, Baseball Prospectus

“I’ll be doing research for a column and an obscure JuCo guy will come up, where I’ll say ‘Oh jeez, how am I going to find out any info on this guy?’ And sure enough, nine times out of ten, Baseball Census already has a live look and detailed report on him with high-end video and everything right there. I can’t count how how many times this has happened now.”

Steven Hardesty, Assistant Coach, Moorpark College

“I first met Bobby DeMuro in 2017 while coaching baseball at Ventura College. He attended multiple games and produced content on several of the players in the program. His dedication to providing an encompassing scouting view on players with video, reports, coach’s information and player insight is invaluable to the evaluation process. Baseball Census puts in the work to provide the highest quality product, and it’s a valuable asset to anyone wanting detailed coverage of JuCo baseball.”

Jimmy Walker, Head Coach, Ventura College

“Bobby DeMuro has made Baseball Census into a great tool for four-year coaches to recruit players with limited budgets. His reports are very accurate and the video is of the highest quality. His work in helping promote our players has led to many receiving scholarship offers to play at the four-year level, as well as several drawing interest at the professional level. Thank you Bobby and Baseball Census for all you do!”
