General questions
No, a lot of opportunities lie outside of division I baseball, if you’re good enough and have the exposure; professional scouts will find you no matter your division.
Develop a game plan, breaking down colleges that you want to attend, academically. We recommended a “dirty dozen” from each level of play and attend camps and showcases that have the coaches from those colleges. It is recommended to go to 2-3 College camps a year and 1-2 showcases. Make sure college coaches from a program you interested in will be at the showcase or camp.
You want to play for both your high school and a travel team. High school baseball can show you are a good teammate and travel team helps you develop your skills by playing throughout the year. College baseball coaches do a lot of evaluation and recruiting over the summer.
Academics should be your first priority; you are not going to play or accepted into a college without the best grades possible. NCAA eligibility has certain requirements and the college coach also has a standard of academic achievements!
Division I programs offer up to 11.7, Division II- up to 9, DIII do not offer athletic scholarships, however, an academic offer could be the same or more than both academic and athletic of another college, NAIA- up to 12 and Junior Colleges, depending on the program.
Coaches want to hear from you. The more interest you show, the better; reach out to assistant coaches and work on building the relationship with them and their program by email. Also, there are NCAA rules that a college coach must follow.
College baseball coaches are looking for skills video. It is a game of repetition and consistency and skill videos show more than game highlights. We recommend an updated video each summer between your sophomore and junior year.
Meet with coaches; play in front of them by attending that college camp. Call coaches from home and send them your skills video. Coaches don’t get a ton of calls, if you make the call it will show a good level of interest in the program and compliance with the NCAA rules.
The softball timeline is faster than most sports. Division I schools are looking at prospects during their freshmen and sophomores years, usually finalize the recruiting list by the players sophomore year.
Invitations and camp brochures go to thousands. Contact coaches via email before going to a camp and find out the needs of the programs. You might go to the camp and they may not be looking in your position, be smart about which ones you decide to attend.
Make a skills video. Most coaches don’t have time to look at a game video. Focus on showcasing your mechanics by getting in front of the coach.
Focus on starting early, attend college camps, play in the summer and fall. Build a relationship with coaches via email. If you’re starting your recruiting process during your junior year and senior year, find out the program needs; coaches like to hear from players.
