Univ of Iowa- The Great Wall of Groundball Prevention

Very interesting.  What do you think?…

Good? Useful?  Bad?

Good story about a kid who was overlooked by pro scouts out of college and then played well in Independent Ball. 

He just signed with the Marlins. See below, what makes him unique as a hitter...

A friend sent me a blog post about college baseball. Here's the core of the blog post:

In this recruiting world, it is easy to look at others around us and wish we had their talent, their skill, played on their team, had their coaches and potentially their future.  Players are bombarded with messages from other parents, teammates and even the media that tell us that by choosing an NCAA Division 1 college means a successful college search.…

Thank you Bill. Can you provide me with any West Coast contacts for Womens Baseball?  I need to look for closer playing options. Since I turned 20, I am in a different group age wise and most play is being geared towards younger players.
