Recruiting- College Baseball News


Players and Parents baseball is a hard sport to get noticed by when it comes to playing college baseball.  College baseball coaches expect you to contact them first unless you run a 6.4 60yds, throw 90mph, or are a 6’5 lefty pitcher. You have to attend baseball show cases or camps every month-week.


You must sell yourself and fill out online questionnaires at any school that looks interesting. Get in touch with coaches and check out the roster to see what they have coming back, and see if you think it’s a place that you would like.


If you find a school that is interesting take a visit in the Fall or Winter or even in the Spring around our schedule. College Baseball coaches aren’t going to beat down the door at Whetstone, You have to sell yourself and be very persistent and aggressive when looking for a college.


We have a lot of players at Whetstone that are capable of playing college baseball, you just need to take the time and get online and look for the right school. The  Whetstone coaches will do everything that they can to help you , once you have contacted the school.
