Advice for Incoming College Freshman

BLUD15 ·
Going off to college is exciting, know there is a whole new baseball world that's waiting for you is even more exciting.

Disclaimer: This is written from a players perspective of college baseball, so there will some things that parents probably won't want to know about. Understand that you are a freshman: It doesn't matter if you're the number 1 recruit in your class or a...

Sharing the love- Happy Valentine's Day!

ballparkmom:) ·
I think this is my first topic post. Having read, studied & learned so much from all of you...Thank you so much! As a baseball loving & not super savvy baseball parent, here are a few thoughts now that DS is committed to a HA D3: 1. Most difficult and recent decision for our son was deciding between JUCO and the HA D3. Left it all up to him...but used guidance from you all. 2. Most important time son spent was ACT prep with a private online tutor...also best money we spent. 3.

Wise and well written post! Congrats on your son's finding a good home and continuing his baseball career! JUCO is a great path for many and can be a worthwhile step to DI and the draft (or for that matter, a degree and career outside of baseball). But for those student athletes who have high level GPAs, test scores, etc. and can be admitted to a HA school, JUCO may not be the best fit academically. Sounds like your son made a good choice. Happy V Day.

Wow! That’s one of the best posts ever made here. Results may vary based on the demands of your degree. But there is time for a social life. All the teammate and baseball stuff is dead on. I was standing outside a hotel one night when a university logo’ed bus pulled up. On the bus was a friend and former teammate of my daughter I hadn’t seen in a year. We chatted for a while. Then she was called. She smiled and said, “I may be leading the country in scoring. But I’m still a freshman. I have...

Ok, I'm in my 50's and I believe I was just put away by a 19/20 year old who is in more touch with baseball reality than I could ever be. And to think my kid distorted the truth a bit when he told me how college was.... . Great post.

They are going to need things form y'all and y'all will need to know things from them. I wouldn't expect daily communication because things do get busy during the school year but several conversations a week is about the norm, I would say.

Great post. I'm guessing that at nerdy D3 colleges "your mileage may vary" on some of these points like social status and parties, but there's alot of universal truths there too. I passed it on to my rising Frosh. Thanks!

My son had official visits with 3 “nerdy” HAD3 and one HAD1. One of those nerdier D3’s was the biggest party school he saw and it totally turned him off.

I think the thing that surprised our whole family is how much there are actually two teams in college baseball — a team of pitchers, and a team of everyone else. My son headed off to college with a teammate from HS. They lived on the same floor, about three doors apart, one is a pitcher, one a MIF. We would ask our son "how's the SS doing?" "I don't know, never see him." Heard from the other boys parents that they got the same thing in reverse. Just something we really didn't expect.

With all due respect, the biggest party weekend I ever experienced in my college years was on the Harvard Yard my Freshman year with high school friends from there, Dartmouth, Brown, Princeton, and Williams. Partying is virtually universal on college campuses of all stripes, colors, and levels.

Mileage may vary with any STEM major at any level. I know what my kids put into being science and math majors and playing. Engineering is more challenging.

I have searched this site and the web but really can’t find much info. I know all schools have fall ball and this how the team is finalized. Is there a schedule any where, is it mainly inter squad? The NCAA site said the coaches get 8 hours per week, is that right? Any info would be appreciated.
