Can we just be honest?  Nobody cares one way or another.  Even if they would 'prefer' that you play HS ball if a coach thinks you are better than the other kid they will take you.  If not they will take the other kid.  Its that simple.  Now I get that if they think the kid may flunk out or he has a criminal record etc that comes into play.  But this thought that they place such a high value on character...  Ok maybe for their lower end guys.  But if a kid with poor character is throwing 95 he will have no problem getting a deal!!  Besides travel ball as an option is now completely acceptable.  Don't want to  shock anyone but a kid who opts to just play travel ball can be a good character kid too!!!  Its just a choice nothing more nothing less.

I agree somewhat, but let's be honest, there are a lot more guys not throwing 95, than those that do.  Therefore, it does matter for most.  

Is it absolutely essential? No.  In most cases is it the right thing to do? I think Yes.
