Would love to hear some opinions on how the various stages of Minor League Ball compare to a large D1 school (like SEC, Big 12, ACC). Talent level of players, conditioning, etc..

Infielddad is right. I go to a college game and look down at most of the players. I go to a minor league spring traing game where you can basicly sit next to the bench, and I look up at most of them. They are huge.
quote:How does the player development in high/mid DI compare to A Ball?
quote:I have no answer other than the fact that I saw some games this year in the ACC and CWS that were better than some MLB games.
quote:I watched one player who was a high pick and all SEC selection completely rework his swing this year. Had been a .350 plus hitter in college with metal. Was struggling just below .200 heading into July this year. Worked countless hours on removing a loop that did not get exposed in college but did with wood and better pitching.
quote:Thus, are guys who are getting drafted out of college more than likely the guys who would have been drafted out of high school anyways but chose to attend college?
quote:In other words, if you were not a pro prospect in high school, are you more than likely not a pro prospect after your college experience?
quote:I don't think the best players are always drafted out of HS, I think the most signable are.
quote:I do not agree that all minorleague players are prospects, however.

too bad about Bonifay??
