Rising Junior Summer Strategy

McCajun ·
My 2018 RHP/OF is stuck sitting at 80 mph despite growing to 6'3"/175 since he broke 80 as a 13 year old. Living in the remote northwest without high school baseball, he attended one major showcase and did some guest pitching last fall (for a receptive southern travel team that has asked him back) have produced one serious D3 nibble for his arm and bat, and one WAC D1 "stay in touch" reach out. Past summers at home have always featured hi-level club ball from May-July where the kid played...

What part of the state are you in? You don't need to mention the town if you are not comfortable, but a region might help. The response for a kid in Berlin/Gorham may be different than one in Salem/Nashua. And also, you are right, most rosters are set, but you never know who might have picked up an injury or just had a kid lose interest. Have you checked into local Legion or Junior Legion? Thanks for the reply. I live in the Concord area, but am willing to drive some distance. The Legion...

I think the team you are looking for may be the one in Weare. I don't know much about them other than I think they are coached by the John Stark head coach. I have no idea on the status of their roster. Here is a link from a quick google search. http://leaguelineup.com/welcom...p?url=wearenationals

Sounds good. Be careful not to overdo it with the arm. If he is like most kids his age, even though he has hit a height spurt, there is still much maturing his body will likely do in the next few years. That, along with keeping mechanics in check, should help considerably with the boost in velo he is hoping for. It just might not happen on the "early D1" timeline that kids would like it to happen. Control what you can control and best of luck. As always, enjoy every step along the way.

Figure out which schools fall within your target list. If your travels take you near any, visit. Add and subtract as you learn what your S wants/doesn't want. Prepare for standardized tests. Find a good PC. Find a good athletic training program. Play catch with dad. Stay on top of grades. (If summer, prepare a list of books.) Youve got a decent baseball approach sketched out.

Given his GPA and that he is not lighting up the radar gun, he/you may be thinking academics is his calling card to attract interest from non top tier programs. If high academic D3 and D1 schools in non-power conferences is the goal, I'd strongly consider HeadFirst Camp (probably Sacramento best for you) and/or one of the Stanford Camps. Lots and lots on this site (just use search button) and online on both.

I agree with everything that has been offered by others. Your son has time to develop his skills in his frame. You've mentioned he is a RHP/OF sitting at 80. What about batting and his speed....are these tools that he could leverage at the next level or does he prefer to pitch? I ask this question because many people at your son's age are beginning to decide between position player or pitcher. One of the best things we did when my oldest son was about your son's age was get him a pitching...

Another skill that opens doors is foot speed. A player can't steal first. But a lot of college coaches light up when they see top level foot speed. Given the 60 is often one of the first tests at a showcase foot speed is a great first notice.

MC, You have received a lot of great feedback. And you have some elements of a sound Summer plan already. Many families with a profile similar to your son's focus too much on playing games the Summer before the player's Junior year. Local leagues, travel tournaments, big showcases, getting seen by colleges, etc. That can be great if the rising Junior is ready for that exposure. But many are not... yet. I recommend to players at this stage to focus (as others have noted) on: standardized test...

MC, We have son's the same age and I'm thinking we live in the same general part of the country. My son is a LHP/outfielder sitting about 80 right now. He is a few inches shorter than yours and his velocity has shot up over the last 9 months or so (sat high 60s as an incoming Freshman). You've gotten a lot of great advice. After reading this site for a couple years and talking to my son's coaches, we've developed a plan for the summer that sounds similar to yours. I'll PM you with his plans.

Could anyone give some insight on fee structure between the Hamptons & Cal Ripken leagues. Son (Freshman ) was given the option of either league.

Be careful, you cannot always base it by League. Depending how the team is supported financially it could be anything from Free to Quite a bit, depending on the league. Depends on the league by-laws. Now the two leagues mentioned May have a league wide rue, I do not know.

I thought I remember something like that also. Something like the players needed to pay some amount (maybe $25/week) to "reimburse" the cost of room and board. Other than that, I don't think there are any quantifiable benefits being provided that the NCAA would frown upon.

Can it be free? I thought I read somewhere that was deemed a violation by our good friends and student-athlete first supporters at the NCAA. My mind may be playing tricks but I thought I read that somewhere some time ago.

I haven't just laid out what this is on the thread because I'm not entirely sure but I know it isn't what Buckeye described so okay here is what I know. They are doing multiple things at USA showcase, one of which is sort of like a summer camp of baseball 24/7. Play PG events, live in a cabin with teammates, get instruction and baseball work outs and I also heard something about all the food being organic or planned out by a nutritionist.

I would start with your high school coach. Many high schools have tie ins with select organizations. There are some message boards that have some openings posted also Like CTX baseball. If that doesn't work,contacting Organizations directly is also an option... we play for an org. based in Georgetown,not sure if they are looking but I could put you in touch with coaches.
