LIVE THE DREAM!
Get Paid to Play Baseball
Summer Baseball can play a key part in granting a young player the exposure necessary to potentially begin a pro career later on. Summer baseball is important for a couple of reasons. In the summertime, scouts get a chance to check out young players that will be available in future drafts. After the draft in June comes the phase where amateur scouts look primarily to the future. Not only that, the summer is when many college coaches get their recruiting done—college seasons are over, so recruiting is the number one priority.
Summer baseball teams that play weekend games are also good for attracting scouts. Most part-time scouts work a regular job during the week and do a great deal of their hunting and evaluating on weekends. Summer baseball clubs that compete in baseball tournaments—particularly those on a national scale—are a magnet for scouts and college recruiters as well.
Whether you’re a parent of a player or a player yourself, the choice of where to play summer baseball and is crucial if the ultimate goal is to go pro. Summer baseball and travel baseball are key ingredients in both development of skills and exposure from an early age all the way through college.
