Recently at Showball, I heard the Harvard HC comment to a large group of parents that one shouldn't be paying for travel ball for the summer after HS graduation. He said that time/money is better spent in the weight room getting a body that's ready to compete with 25 years olds (slight exaggeration, perhaps, but I got the point) and with family before leaving for college. I thought that was an interesting perspective and one that I had not heard before. I had just assumed that my son would be playing a ton of baseball the summer before college.
As we are getting ready to make decisions about travel ball for next year, I thought I would poll the group to see who agrees with the Harvard HC.
