First time post:
To all of you, congratulations on building a vibrant on-line community. I've learned a lot from you already.
My son is an 8th grader playing varsity baseball at an international school abroad. This is a small setting and it's impossible to judge his ability relative to the many talented athletes described on these
boards. Nevertheless, a biased non-expert dad thinks he is pretty good. He also excels at basketball and,in a large multi-school track meet, he made the finals in the 100, 200, 110 hurdles and long jump. He won gold
in the high jump.
Although it is very early for him to be interested in recruiting, the suggested recruiting/development timeline on this site
is not possible for him. He will be able to play baseball in the spring only. He will spend 6-8 weeks each summer in the St Augustine, Fl area. Our thought is to
attend a college camp this summer and to try to
gauge his relative ability. Is this too early? Is this the best option? What is your advice for subsequent years? This will require a great deal of planning if he wants to pursue this path.
Thank you in advance for your advice
