    I have been following college baseball for a while now and i think it is a very exciting division of baseball to watch. I know many people don't like it because of the metal bats but that's what makes it unique and different from the majors and minors. so i was wondering if you guys could put some thought in to making an college baseball segement to the site.

    Thanks for your time

    This pretty much fits into: ''The Minor Leagues'' forum

      Not really. College and the minors are entirely different things.
      56 chmps, this was proposed not too long ago, and is under consideration.

        What do you think about me renaming The Minor Leagues to:

        The Minor Leagues / College Baseball

        The forum is not really that busy. If either did get really busy the split would be easy enough to handle, but for now it could be acknowledged on the menu so it is clear where those type posts could be placed...

          I would make it a "Amateur Baseball" thread.

          With college being in early spring and ending by June, many youth and high school issues could be discussed in that forum, other than the actual coaching issues in which there is already a thread.

          In August, the many youth amateur organizations have their world series, the high school state and section playoffs in May and June, NCAA, NAIA and JC baseball and recruiting may all be topics of discussion in shuch a thread.

          I would really think that throwing college and minor league ball together is not conducive. The minor leagues are still professional baseball, which makes thing entirely different that the amateur game.

            I think that since the Minor Leagues are technically pro ball, as they get paid (however minimally), they should be separate. I believe that College & HS Baseball should be a separate forum, as they're both Amateur Baseball.

            Now the issue should be what should be included? Should we have an all-encompassing Amateur Baseball forum? Or should we have separate subforums under "College", "High School" and "Little League"?

              Good point about the professional being kept seperate from the non-professional. Thanks for pointing that out. I don't think the breakout of all the amateurs is a good idea at the start. I'm not even sure we have enough threads to put into a new forum dedicated to Amateur Baseball, but if this is something that others think is of interest I'll dig deeper into it...

              Other than this thread, which has two members requesting it, I've not been approached about it privately so I'll need to base it upon a content shift from existing forums to a new forum and if it is enough I'll make the update.

                Putting all amateur baseball together would work just fine. Sine there are only four recognized baseball codes, OBR (Official Baseball Rules), NCAA (college), NFHS (National Federation of High School Asociations, often called "FED" or "Federation" rules), and Little League.

                When kids play baseball, they may actually play more than one leverl throughout the year like playing HS in the Spring and play either Sr League or Big League (part of Little League), or one of the many youth groups that play OBR (with modifications) such as Pony (Colt and Palimino), Babe Ruth, USABA, CABA and other similar groups.

                The rule differences can be confusing, but in such a forum, many questions may be addressed. Once players finish with HS, the next progression is college with tends to use NCAA, except NAIA schools which use, and I kid you not, OBR with the NCAA DH (one of the most complex baseball rules in any code) and the NFHS substitution rule (starters are allowed to re-enter in their same spot in the batting order).

                Also amateur baseball has different issues than any level of professional and all but NCAA play less than nine innings (mostly seven except for most under 12 years old ball). By having an "Amateur Baseball Forum" there would be many threads on the different levels like "HS baseball", a "CWS" thread, or even "Little League WS" or "Area Code games."

                  I agree; there has to be an amateur baseball forum. There are as many, if not more people who follow college baseball than the minor leagues. And that's not even mentioning all the Little Leaguers on this forum! And there's one thing nobody's even mentioned: other leagues. Including, of course, my personal favorite, the Cape Cod Baseball League. It's where all the best college players go to refine their skills in the summer. I may be the only person in the world who diligently follows the CCBL, but it's definitely worth putting in this forum.

                      But, as others have said, and I agree, amateur baseball and minor league baseball are two different things, because minor leaguers are pros and little leaguers are not.
