    How do you get recrutied by a college.You have to be good at what you do.But what if your a good fielder and not so good offensively?Because I would like to go to college to play,but im not sure how.It dont matter to me where I go as long as I play baseball.I dont even care if I go to the Bg leagues (But that would be awesome) as long as I play baseball.You also have to have a high GPA right?

    If you can't hit in high school you're not playing college ball as a position player.

      Agreed. On the opposite end if you are a dangerous hitter and a so-so defensive guy you have a shot at a spot. The other way around? Very little chance.

        I can hit decent.But not awesomely,know what I mean.So you have to be a real good hitter.Do they look at your whole high school career or just what you did like your junior and senior year??

          Scouts look at what you can do today. They look at tools over stats. If they're not sure of what they see today, they'll come back tomorrow to see if you can do it again. Scouts do not spend a lot of time at high school games anymore unless there's a stud involved. Players are found at showcases. You should go to a showcase and watch to see if you would fit in. Most D1 players were all-state. A majority of D3 players were all-conference. There are 450,000 high school baseball players. 45,000 will play college ball at any level (NCAA, NAIA, JuCo). That's 10% of all high school players. How badly do you want it? My son has three hours of practice or games six days a week. Today was his day off. He threw for thirty minutes and hit off the tee and soft toss for an hour.

              Perfect Game, Head First, TPX. Also colleges will have them and invite smaller programs who can't steal the top talent. Go watch before paying and attending. Find out if this is your speed. You will find mostly all-conference players at these events.

                  Do you think all the players are getting full rides? A D1 program gets 11.7 scholarships to share among twenty-seven players. Then there are eight walk on players. Many programs aren't fully funded. I know programs in major conferences only funding six scholarships.

                  If you're not a stud hitter don't worry about a scholarship. Like I said before scouts are more interested in tools than stats. Huge stats may get you noticed, but they still examine the tools. I know a kid who hit .553 he senior year of high school. He was a career .400+ hitter. He wasn't offered a scholarship. He walked on at a D1. He was a 5'7", 150 singles hitter in high school. He was all-conference three times. He's been on the bench for two years now in college.

                  D2 programs offer 7.5 (?) scholarships to be divided among all the players. D3 doesn't give scholarships. Given how you've described your abilities your best shot may be D3. Don't expect sports to pay for your college unless you play football or basketball at a major program. My daughter's academic ride is bigger than her athletic (softball) ride.

                      The 11.7 rides get split up among twenty-seven players. Only a stud pitcher, catcher, shortstop or centerfielder might get a full ride.

                        A Right Handed pitcher who consistently hits 96-97
                        and a Left handed Pitcher/1B and hits almost a homer a game and has a life average of over .650

                              Mid 60's is awesome ............. for an eleven year old.
