I'm looking for some thoughts or opinions about the summer. Our son is currently a JUCO freshman living on campus, 3 1/2 hours away. He is doing amazingly well with his baseball team, and not quite that good with his school work.
I am thinking he should stay where he is for the summer, rent a room, take some classes (he will need them to graduate on time), and have a job. He will turn 20 in March.
So, that said, here is my question: How important is it to play ball the summer between fresh. and soph. year for a JUCO student? Is this to stay in shape, for exposure to 4 year college programs? Or is this just for fun?
Maybe some parents have been down this road before, I would love to hear your thoughts.
