Summer ball is really the key to getting noticed. I play HS ball and summer ball during high school and there were always a lot more scouts/college coaches at summer ball games. We had 3 kids play D-1 college baseball from my HS team and a couple others either choose a different sport of play in lower divisions. While the occasional college scout was at our games, I never really noticed any pro teams at our games. However, on my summer league team when we played in big tournaments there were always at least 2-3 pro scouts just taking in the game, even if they were not looking at anyone in particular. I'd suggest making sure he tries out for a few bigger summer teams that play in tournaments where he might get noticed.
