Podcast #42: Recruiting and Showcase Prep Nuggets from PBR New Jersey’s TJ Hunt

I would like to welcome our guest today, TJ Hunt with Prep Baseball. I have known TJ for many years, going back to our days in Sloatsburg, NY and it’s a great pleasure to have him in the show. If you’re planning on attending a @prepbaseball event, this is a must listen. Join us as we discuss how to prepare, and the do’s and don’ts when you show up.

TJ is the Director of Scouting and Operations for PBR in New Jersey.  There is really no one better to discuss the current state of recruiting than showcase operators on the front lines and TJ is one of the best.

Before we get to the show, I just want to briefly cover TJ’s background, because if there is such a thing as a baseball family, the Hunts are it!

    • Let’s start with his grandfather, the late Jim Hunt, who spent much of his life coaching baseball at Englewood, Tenafly High schools, and Fairleigh Dickinson University in NJ.
    • TJ’s father, Mickey, was also head coach at Ramapo High School here in NJ for 17 years.
    • His older brother Shooter, currently with PBR as well, was a college star at Tulane and was drafted in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins.
    • His younger Brother, KC, is currently with Mississippi State and was selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 12th round of the 2022 MLB Draft, but has chosen to return to the school for this spring.

TJ himself is a 2015 graduate of Monmouth University where he pitched for four years and played for the Rockland Boulders after graduation. TJ can be reached on his Twitter feeds @TJHunt_PBRNJ and @PBRNewJersey.
