My son received an email today from Old World Baseball inviting him to be on some team they are taking to Europe this summer before kids head off to play college ball.

They say they saw him play at HeadFirst and have his stats and are filling the final four spots. They will be playing teams from France, Holland etc.

Anyone have info about this? 

Thanks

Sounds like it would be a blast (and expensive?)  I'm not familiar with the outfit specifically but the region in general and the countries mentioned aren't exactly known for their high level of competitive baseball.  So, it may not prove to be the best choice for preparing him for year one of college ball.  I would definitely have him run it by his new college coaches.  In fact, if he hasn't already, he should be asking them that very question - what he should be doing over the summer to best prepare him to compete for a spot/make the roster/whatever shoe fits.

My son got it too.  A player from his program went a few years ago. Not sure if we will do it.  the price reflected doesn't include any of the flights, so it's a lot of moolah but it looks like a great opportunity!  Let me know if you get any further info and I will do the same!

Too funny. Seems a little like a mass mailing to me. That’s what we figured.

They must buy contact info from HeadFirst or something.

My son would love to go to Europe to play baseball lol. But won’t be happening on our end either.

We were curious about it though.

Both of my sons went and loved it.  Quality organization and coaching.  Mix of D1 and D3 players. 

Oldest son was a D1 player and could not study abroad due to Fall and Spring baseball commitments.  Youngest was a D3 player.  His college coach really frowned upon any kids studying abroad in the Fall so very few ever did.  Both boys' coaches expected Summer ball every year too.  OWB was the only chance for my guys to get international travel / experience and they really enjoyed their time in Europe.
