Sunflower Collegiate League

Northland ·
My son is a freshman at a competitive mid-western D1 JUCO and is in the process of trying to figure out a summer collegiate opportunity. He has been referred by his coach to a team in the Sunflower Collegiate League. The league recently added 4 teams from the now defunct Jayhawk league. Does anyone have any thoughts on the level of competition this league will have? Or how it would compare to the other collegiate leagues? Thanks!

Thanks for input thus far. This will be his first collegiate summer baseball. I feel that playing against the best competition is the best way to improve. But is it better as a position player to go somewhere with assured playing time where he will (hopefully) outperform? He is a JUCO looking for a shot at D1.

I see there is a team in the league that had a 1-24 record and several blowout losses. If that's the team...

As a position player, you want decent competition where he'll play. Unless he is already shining as the absolute stud of his JC, this is probably a good league for a first year JC player. If the JC coach is referring, son should ask him what, if any, playing time arrangement is expected.

My son played for the Hays Larks a couple of years ago. Hays and Liberal would be considered the best teams in the Jayhawk league and would be competitive in mid tier summer leagues. The 4 teams that are leaving were not as competitive, and are joining a lesser competitive league (in my opinion).

This is only the second year of this league. They are still evolving but I expect that the league will be much better next summer, from what I have heard.

I do remember Austin's story...very cool. And a bummer he got cut. He was able to pursue a dream, if only for a few years, but man, that is going to look good on a resume along with that MIT degree.

Interesting How College Summer Ball Temp vs Full Contracts Can Work Out

Gov ·
I posted this in a recent thread having more to do with Collegiate Summer Leagues leading to draft...thought it would be a beneficial story to others going down this path in the next few years: Coastal Plains HC calls son yesterday asking him to come down for last two weeks. Said he'd rotate him between 2B, SS, 3B and play every game. This was the Temp Contract that ended due to the Full Contract guys all showing up. Amazing how this can work out.

I saw Filiere play while at MIT versus Tufts a couple of games. He definitely stood out as an “it” player in a D3 game. He succeeded in the Cape League against some of the best college players in the country. Yet he was released after a couple of adequate minor league seasons. http://www.milb.com/player/ind...r/R/hitting/2018/ALL I watch a lot of BC ball. One kid I don’t believe has any more physical ability than Filiere is plugging away in his fourth year of minor league ball with a .200...

Austin got into the Cape Cod League out of MIT, a Div. III university as a “temp”—a league term for fill-in walk-on who plays at the beginning of the season until the big boys from Arizona, Florida, Vanderbilt, et al arrive, and end up leading the league in homers, RBIs, finish third in slugging, and as everyone at MIT understands, finished third in Runs Created and lead the league in Isolated Power (ISOP). ... http://www.gammonsdaily.com/pe...al-manager-from-mit/ Starting as a temp in the...

Was watching son's team last night as well as having recent conversations with him... very common this time of year for teams to start losing players and have to fill in for the last week or three, even surefire playoff bound teams. P's use up their allotted innings, others head home for a variety of reasons. Often, the teams will go back to those who came on under a temp contract seven weeks ago. Another interesting circumstance is how many players who were not getting sufficient innings...

Gov, you probably remember the case of Austin Filiere from MIT who was a temp in the Cape Cod League, tore it up and eventually became an 8th round draft choice. Great story. But too bad it ended with him getting cut after 2 years in MiLB. *ha RJM beat me at the buzzer.
