Get to all your classes other than ones you miss due to baseball. Do all your homework and reading on schedule. Most majors aren't that hard if you keep up. It can be a bear if you fall behind.

If your coach hasn't done so already, prepare a workout plan for the summer. You'll want to be in the best physical shape when you arrive on campus. The fall practices are basically the tryouts for the spring squad. And as mentioned, keep up on your school work. Once you fall behind it is difficult to catch up. Be ready for long days. My son's days started at 5 am for a 5:30 am work out, classes until 2 pm, then practice from 3-6 pm (sometimes later). Then dinner and any homework. In bed by...

If you are like most, there will be a lot of "firsts" when it comes to making your own decisions. You decide whether to go to class or not, whether to wake up or not, whether to party or not, whether to put the extra work in, whether to study sufficiently, whether to have a positive approach to things, whether to make right choices, etc., etc. Often, given the option for the first time, young men make a lot of the wrong choices. My advice would be to go into this determined to make the right...

Here is some advice based on my college track career. Admittedly it was 25+ years ago, but I think it probably still holds true. Class, class, class. Make sure you are attending class and keeping up with assignments. Its so easy in college to start to blow off class and assignments. I know right now your saying, yea no problem, but its tough to get to that 7pm class after having practice and weight room until 6pm. This needs to be you number 1 priority. Many schools will have...

You cannot assume that you will show up in the Fall and have a spot on the roster. As other have said , you need to show up in the best shape of your life, prepared to battle for a roster spot and battle for playing time. Many D3's will have 50-75 players in the Fall, with just 35 roster spots available. And keep in mind that the coaches are out scouting this entire summer, looking for players to replace you in your Sophomore season.

Yep - son's first day at practice had 53 players show up (D2 JuCo). They eventually self cut to 35 (grades, medical-health, disillusionment) by the spring season.

I want to add to the above comments on being in the best shape of your life. Talk to your trainer or a nutritionist and find out the proper things to eat. It's easy to slack off a bit now since just graduated, a few months until college begins, you want to sleep in, relax, etc. Now is the time to develop good habits thus when college starts you can step right in and feel comfortable knowing your body and mind is where it is supposed to be. Proper nutrition and sleep will help build body mass...

Be VERY proactive in reaching out to your professors about you being an athlete. Learn which teachers are willing to work with you and which ones are more difficult.

1. Stay with your laundry, unless you bring it home to wash. Can't tell you how many people had shirts go missing. 2. Bring a microwave, I spent many nights in the student lounge studying and being able to make a bowl of soup or popcorn was a life saver. 3. Bring Shower Shoes, foot fungus is no joke! 4. Block out your study time. You may only have Monday night to study for your test on Friday. I would spend most of Monday making up half note cards with a key sentence on one side with a key...

You've seen tremendous advice thus far on the academic and athletic side. Don't forget about the social side, which has derailed more athletic careers than anything. Make good decisions, have fun but always stay in complete control of your actions. Earn respect by taking care of business in the classroom and on the field, not by being the life of the party. Align yourself with the upperclassmen that have taken this route and follow suit. Good luck.
