Summer To-Do List

Here are the top 10 things you should do during your summer season:

  1. Update your information. Stats, grades and any awards received should be updated in your profile.

  2. Re-connect with any coaches you’ve personally talked with and give them a copy of your summer schedule.

  3. If you do not feel there are enough schools that are talking to you, ask for another list and get more involved.

  4. If you plan to attend an event and you know of any colleges that will be there, send a short, personal note to the coach before and after.

  5. Keep track of summer stats. These may be used to tell part of your story.

  6. If you have the money and time AND there is SINCERE INTEREST from a school, it may be beneficial to make a couple visits.

  7. Any video that can be taken and spliced together can enhance a profile (not a necessity, but helpful).

  8. Take a vacation and enjoy time with your family. Your baseball future will not end because you didn't attend some showcase.

  9. Depending on your schedule, it may be better to take time off or train. Sometimes the answer isn't always more games.

  10. Do not put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to have a commitment going into your senior year.

And a bonus item:

HAVE FUN. If playing baseball and competing in tournaments is not enjoyable for you, do some soul-searching about why it’s not. It's a game to be enjoyed — that's why we all started in the first place. Let's keep it that way.
