NCAA stats: Probability of competing beyond high school

Probability of competing beyond high school

Baseball:  About five in 75, or about 6.8 percent, of high school senior boys interscholastic baseball
players will go on to play men's baseball at a NCAA member institution.

About nine in 100, or about 9.4 percent, of NCAA senior male baseball players will
get drafted by a Major League Baseball (MLB) team.

Approximately one in 200, or about 0.50 percent of high school senior boys playing
interscholastic baseball will eventually be drafted by an MLB team.

Are there any studies/stats on the number of boys playing youth/rec/little league baseball and how many of those go on to play in High School?  I think that number is even more sobering for parents - how many kids that play Little League who will go on to play anywhere after the age of 13 or so.

I found this stat in a Baseball America article:

"According to Little League stats, fewer than 10 percent of all youth baseball players will even play high school baseball"

Looking at this I am happy I am Swedish, yeah sure I pay to play but after graduating from high school I have played ice hockey, football, soccer and baseball in an organized form, everything is club based and school tournaments are minor for the players, my high school had soccer, olympic handball, ice hockey and some other sports but most players playing at a higher level didn't participate due to the fact that their clubs didn´t let them...
