College BaseballI'm interested in playing baseball in college. Next school year i will be a senior and i'm currently playing summer ball. I've sent out letter to some colleges i'd like to attend or i think i could attend. They have all sent me things back to fill out and send in. This past week i got a email from a college coach saying he'd love to have me on his team, but it wasnt exactly what i'm looking for. What else can i do to prusue a dream of playing college baseball??Advertisement

Make a flyer of yourself, include name, age, height/weight and contact information. You can also make a video of yourself, at the position of interest and show hitting, fielding and throwing. Also list a speed in the 60yd dash time, accomplishments during your career and your gpa, act and if your registered with the NCAA clearinghouse. List references from your coaches and others, for the coach to contact.

Any video should be less than 3 minutes and show what you can do.
Attend showcases if you can locate and fall/winter camps by coaches, then hope you get a solid contact and have them watch you play. Provide the name/contact and schedule of your summer team
Send them out to various colleges or you can pm me, I 'll offer any assistance possible.

dmd31base, keep in mind that the more flexibility you have, the better. So when you say it "wasnt exactly what i'm looking for," keep in mind that there are over 1200 4 year colleges with baseball teams, and you are likely not qualified to play for most of them. The best thing you can do to pursue your dream of playing college baseball is to ask your summer and HS coaches at what collegiate level they think you can compete, then contact that level of coaches as per STRIKE3's advice.
My recommendation is to always responde to any coach who has an interest, because you never know which will be the best fit for you!
