Sportsnet.ca: Davidi: Head of the class

The Toronto Blue Jays’ latest foray into developing Canadian baseball at the grassroots level comes in the form of a scout school for a handful of coaches from the country’s top amateur teams this weekend at the Rogers Centre.

The two-day session, which kicked off Friday morning, is being led by amateur scouting director Andrew Tinnish and is both selfless and a touch selfish in motivation.

By divulging some of the club’s philosophies on both player evaluation and development, the Blue Jays are hopeful that some key messages will trickle down to elite-level players before many of their habits on the field become set.
...
But there is also an element of self-interest at play, as well, as the scout school should help the Blue Jays deepen ties with coaches from coast to coast, allowing them to potentially identify players earlier in their careers, gain a better understanding of them as they grow, and use that information to their benefit at draft time.
