College baseball is right around the corner, and teams have just started their first practices this week. Most of you reading this want to play college baseball, but have no idea what it means or what it takes. One way you can get an idea on what it takes is to go watch a college program practice. It doesn’t matter what level you go watch, I just urge you to go watch one. And don’t just show up when you can, and leave whenever you want. Get there before it starts, and stay until the end. I think you will be amazed at the length of the practices, and how much the players do during practice. Watch as much as you can, the pitchers if they are throwing pens, the hitters if they are hitting in the cages and you have access to see them. Email the coaches to see what time their practice is and ask if you can come and watch them. Assure them that you don’t want to do anything other than watch how they run their practice (if you need help formatting an email, please reach out to us and we can help). It doesn’t matter if you think you are a Division I player, and the only school you can go watch is a Division III program, just go and watch practice to get some idea of what it looks like. You will be amazed at the work that goes into college baseball.
