What does my son need to do to start the recruiting process?
First thing would be to go to our baseball website and completely fill out our online questionnaire. The next step would be to contact the coaches via email and introduce themselves with a small bio and video of themselves playing (very helpful). We are always out recruiting so playing on a Connie Mack/Scout Team, CCYB or Travel team allows us to see you play in competitive environments.
What should I bring to my baseball camp or showcase camp?
Many times the camp itself will have a recommended list of items to bring to camp, but here are a few things to help you. All position players should bring a bat and glove. Look like a baseball player by wearing a hat, jersey, belt, baseball socks, etc. You need to look the part. If you are a catcher, have your own gear. Hitters, bring your bat and helmet just in case. Don’t expect to use the college’s equipment and you must be ready to go! Borrow something from a teammate or coach if you do not have one.
