Helping a friend out here who has a son who plays baseball at the Community College level. He is in his second year now will be transferring to a four year school, destination unknown. He played summer ball with the CC last year and has nothing set up for this coming summer.
I know I'm talking elite level players here, but I thought the "real" prospects play summer ball first year in the Virginia area, second year in the midwest/Great Lakes or Alaska, third year Cape Cod league. Other than these leagues, what are some other leagues in which players play?
How does a play go about getting selected to play in these leagues? I have a (different) friend whose son played in Yakima who told me the college teams set it up for the players. If your college coach is lazy or shy or doesn't believe in you enough to make calls on your behalf, what can a player do to play in a summer league?
I've read about other parents talking about some leagues and bad experiences about accommodations, but it seems even these say the baseball was pretty good.
