Here' s what it ' s like to throw in front of them.

BOSTON - Preseason American Family Insurance All-USA Baseball Team selection Mike Vasil of Boston College High took his first throws of the spring Thursday afternoon, going three innings in a scrimmage at home against Bishop Hendricken (Warwick, R.I.).

On the mound, it was the Vasil that's come to captivate the Massachusetts high school baseball landscape, fanning six batters with a deft array of fastballs and curves - though the Hendricken batters were ready for his heat, as evidenced in his final inning.

And behind the backstop, it was a scene we'll be seeing every time the 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior right-hander takes the hill: Dozens of Major League Baseball scouts with notebooks and clipboards in hand, some hunched over their police-issue-sized radar guns, others peering into a handheld video camera, studiously documenting his every move.

Boy Scout with Down syndrome wasn't stripped of merit badges, path to Eagle Scout rank, group says

  Boy Scout with Down syndrome wasn't stripped of merit badges, path to Eagle Scout rank, group says The Boy Scouts of America said there are misconceptions about a Utah boy's path to an Eagle Scout rank.  The group said Logan Blythe is still a Boy Scout and still has the option to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, even with modifications. The Boy Scouts said the National Disabilities Advancement Team wants to work with Logan's family to review what he already accomplished and figure out a path forward.

"It's definitely exciting, but it's something you've just got to deal with and take control of," said Vasil after the scrimmage. "You can't really focus on them. You've just kinda got to put that aside and focus on pitching."

By now players like Vasil, a projected first-round pick currently ranked the No. 30 overall MLB draft prospect by Baseball America, are used to this kind of attention. Last month, Mountain Ridge (Glendale, Ariz.) lefthander Matthew Liberatore, a projected top-five pick for June, made his first start of the high school season with nearly 150 MLB scouts, cross-checkers, scouting directors and front office personnel watching. It's not uncommon to see some of the nation's top high school arms routinely draw crowds of various MLB personnel numbering in the triple-digits for their starts.

Report: Johnny Manziel to throw at University of San Diego pro day Thursday

  Report: Johnny Manziel to throw at University of San Diego pro day Thursday Johnny Manziel is trying to reboot his football career. According to Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated, Manziel will be the quarterback throwing to receivers at the pro day workouts at the University of San Diego on Thursday morning.

Aspiring professional baseball player Tim Tebow had his big workout on Tuesday, and it sounds like it went fine. Former Heisman Trophy winner and aspiring professional baseball player Tim Tebow worked out in front of 42 MLB scouts on Tuesday in California, where he took batting practice

for what it ' s worth, 6.7-6.9 in 60-yard dash is around Major League average, three scouts had Tim Tebow at exactly 6.76. In all, it sounds like Tebow did fine. Whether his workout translates to an actual MLB offer remains to be seen. More From Business Insider.

Vasil recalled his first outing in front of a throng of 100-plus scouts, last summer at USA Baseball's Tournament of Stars in Cary, N.C., and admitted "It was a little nerve-wracking at first".

"But I figured, you know, if I'm good enough to pitch at that level against that kind of competition, and face those hitters, then I felt pretty confident (going forward)," he added.

The biggest thing to remember? Be yourself. Play like nobody's watching.

"You definitely want to be able to perform," Vasil said. "They look at everything - what kind of competitor you are, what kind of teammate you are. I think the most important thing is, whatever I was doing before - freshman, sophomore, junior years - to do it now. Never change just because they're back there. Stay true to yourself."

Vasil, a University of Virginia commit, was sitting around 94-95 mph on his fastball Thursday. And while the Hendricken batters were able to turn on his high heat, taking one for a stand-up RBI double in the first inning and scattering a few more runs in the third, Vasil's off-speed stuff kept them guessing:

We didn't see any of Vasil's changeup, which typically sits in the low-80's with splitter-like movement, and he also wields a mid-80's slider. He's yet to throw it in game action, but Vasil says he's been working on adding a cutter to his repertoire, which if effective should only add further intrigue to his draft stock this spring.

What scouts are also trying to project is how can the player meet his upside down the road?
