What to Look For when Prospecting


It is only in the last few years that I have gotten into prospecting, and I don't think I am the only one around these parts.  So, I wanted to ask the community, when you go out to the park to see your local minor league team what do you look for.  So many parks don't post speed data, and you might only get 3-4 ABs to evaluate a hitter or 2-3 chances for a defensive player, so what clues do you look for?  What makes you say "this is/isn't the guy I thought he was?"

 

 

My own input, I look for pitchers that work quickly, especially when ahead.  That tells me that they are confident in their pitches.
