If I was to win the Stuff Your Baseball Bag Contest

Posted on November 9, 2012 at 7:45pm 0 Comments

If I was to win this event, I would use everything thoroughly. I am in need of a new wood baseball bat, especially as the summer approaches. I actually use my Dinger Bat I won on this site many years ago, and it is such a good bat. I know the quality of Barnstable is just as nice, if not nicer. As a college baseball player now at a small NAIA school, I want to be able to stand out, and having as great new glove and bat would definitely stand me apart. My Crunoz glove I won off the site…

The Value Of Defense

Posted on January 13, 2012 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

Defense is one of the most underrated key aspects of the game. I have never been a huge offensive threat growing up throughout the game, but I always made sure if I struggled offensively to make it up defensively. A diving catch or a routine play always seems to make the difference either for the good or the bad. Every baseball player can recall an incident in which that has occurred. Being a good defensive player can go along…

Hello Sawyer, it is great to hear from you. To answer some of your questions, I came into college as an outfielder but as time went on I slowly got moved to DH. It is a long story, which I go into great detail in the book, but a few guys came into the program and due to some reshuffling I finished my career as a full time DH.

 

America East baseball was very good. It is tough to recruit players to play in the snowbelt, but for me the level of play was perfect. I actually got seen by Binghamton in my last showcase of the summer, in late August. Have you been communicating with the various coaches? I think the same story is true with coaches, showcases and tournaments; explore as many as possible. You never know which showcase or coach will see you at the right time. The more chances you get at being seen, the better chance you have of something working out.

 

Though you are a number to them, you can use that to your advantage. You have every right to show high interest in any program that might be a good fit. Keep your options open because you don't know which school will end up being right. I never thought going to school in lonely and cold upstate NY was right for me, but at the end of the day they had the best situation ( academics, scholarship, etc.). 

 

Best of luck and please do not hesitate to contact me with questions.
