Reply to "Is Travel Ball a necessity?"

Here's the thing on travel ball.  If you want to play in college you need to find a few travel teams and do some homework. Find out where they get their other players, are they a local travel team or a national team.  Talk to other parents and coaches in your area the teams are not hard to find.

Then go talk to the travel team coaches and request a try-out. See where you stack up?  Are you better of playing for travel team A or travel team B or travel team C ?  Because you need to make sure you are playing and not funding....

Compare the schedules of the travel teams, look at what that TT is asking of you in terms of money, time, travel .  Find the team that fits your abilities.  

Do this every year and do not commit to more than a year on any team. I promise you they are not holding a spot for you except in the current year.

Get an unbiased opinion from a good source.... define your target schools based on can you attend if baseball is gone.  can you afford the school if baseball is gone?

Keep asking people on the board questions.
