If your position player was offered during junior year, can tell us when and at what type of an event your son was noticed? What was the tool motivating the coach to offer?

 

2014 attends one of the D1 "public ivies".  Plays MIF.  

Committed the summer between sophomore and junior years.  

He was playing 17u WWBA the first week of July on a field in the boonies, but several coaches were there.  Son was up to bat, turned himself around to switch hit, and hit a bomb.  

One coach that was there, was not the head coach at the time, also attended an out of state tournament the next weekend and saw him again.  He talked to son's travel coach after that event to set up an on campus meeting and an offer was made.  Accepted in 3 days.

I believe the coach was at the HS state tournament that June as well.  Son was on a good HS team with an eventual 1st round pitcher.

I think baseball got him in to this high academic school, although he had good, not tip-top, grades.
