HS Sophomore season or prior… With the new recruiting rules, is anyone doing showcases? Should anyone be doing showcases?
My LHP (and unlikely 1B or OF) had already planned on dedicating the fall of his Soph year to baseball specific workouts and that’s what we are doing plus pitching a few innings a week.
I’ll add that our fall organization also didn’t adjust for the fall. They still run a lot of camp days at specific colleges, like 1 JUCO, 2 mid D1s and only play a couple of tournaments. The camps might still be worthwhile to some but I feel like they are just staying the course rather than adjusting their fall program for the players that can’t be recruited yet. Maybe I’m wrong.
Son saw pretty significant strength and moderate velocity gains working out and doing the fall program last year. I’ll add that the fall last year was our first time with this Organization so, while I was tempted to opt out, I felt it necessary to join so my LHP would get evaluated before the summer tryouts that December. That part definitely worked out.
What is everyone else doing or experiencing this fall? And those who know more, happy to provide more info if you want to dissect it more That’s part of the fun of this forum 😁
