Wow, I am a tad bit shocked to read everyone advocating for the easier route. I guess what they say about today's society is true, nobody wants to take the hard road. College athletics is not about just athletics. Based on what OP put I would and I would want my son to attend program A. You are going to learn hard work, you are going to learn tradition, you are going to learn perseverance, you are going to learn patience, you are going to learn how to be a team player. Program B will hand you a life lesson of no competition and a me now approach. I would be disgusted if a coach told my kid they could start all 4 years, I would automatically cross them off the list. There is a huge difference between chance to start and start. I want my kid to earn whatever he gets. Also, in regards to getting drafted and playing professionally. Might want to find the thread or google Ben Zorbrist. Also There is a player name Evan Longoria who nobody wanted out of High School but a Junior College. You never know!
occasionally people get hit by lightening bolts and attached by sharks - pretty safe to assume the boy shouldn't be overly concerned about them.
Every baseball person I spoken with has said roughly to the same to me, if you don't start or play regular Freshman or sophomore year you most likely won't play at all as an upperclassmen. That includes several college coaches.
A) You and I know a lot more MLB guys were written off out of HS than Shark Attacks and Lighting.
B) What is the purpose of your statement about "Every Baseball Person"? I don't remember nor reading anything I wrote stating that is not true. I don't even remember thinking that, that was not true.
