Reply to "PG WWBA"

NTGson played WWBA as 14U, 15U, 16U and 17U. The growth in coaches in attendance grew exponentially as each year came and went. For younger players, the experience is invaluable: quality opponents, now great fields (East Cobb was nice, but nowhere near the quality venue Lake Point is), very good officiating and thrilling competition. If you play in the 16 or 17U WWBA, you must have done your homework as other posters have suggested. The schools in which you are interested have to know of your interest in their school and program, your profile, your basic statistics including academic standing, and your team's schedule. There is no other 17U tournament as well-attended as the 17UWWBA. Those coaches for whom you may fill a need will inevitably show up at your team's games. NTGson's coaches broadcast the pitching rotation and lineup for each game to their lists of more than 100 schools in which their team's players had expressed interest. In some instances, they changed the lineup because a specific school wished to see a certain player on the field or on the mound. The 17U WWBA tournament field brought more than 8,000 players to Atlanta. The sheer number of athletes at the event makes it darn near impossible for one player to be noticed without having done the necessary prep work. Unless, of course, he's throwing at 93+ or hitting bombs over the fences every 3rd or 4th at bat.
