Looking for advice on whether / how to pursue guest invites for my 2024 RHP/SS. He plays for a local team that doesn’t attend the bigger tournaments. I’ve seen a lot of comments on the board about playing the best competition you can and I think he would benefit from being challenged more. At the same time, he’s getting great development with a respected coach and the team’s format allows him to focus a lot of time on getting bigger, faster, stronger. So I’m wondering if he could balance the two by staying with the current team and looking for select opportunities to pick up with other teams for the bigger tournaments.
Is that possible? If so, how does it happen? Would he reach out to coaches or do the coaches find the players? Does he need to showcase or get on social media so people can find him?
Also, is it harder to pursue this strategy if he wants to stay as a two-way? From what I’ve seen, it looks like mostly pitchers guest play. I think he’d be open to PO as a guest player and that’s probably his best selling point. He sits mid 80s from the mound and has been told he’ll get innings this spring with his HS varsity team.
All advice is greatly appreciated.
