Hello All. Hopefully someone (or many someones) can help me with a question.
My son is an '06 that currently plays on a very competitive 18U summer team. This past year he has written many letters to schools he is interested in (Div 1 and Div 3) and has gotten many "standard" responses asking for him to fill out bio's. He patiently has filled out each and every request that was mailed to him.
Now he has received a lot of invitations to summer camps being put on by many of the colleges he is interested in (he has narrowed his college list to about 15 schools at the moment). He has also been invited to attend an area code tryout and a Team One showcase.
The dilemma is, if he were to attend everything he has gotten an invite to be it a camp or showcase he would have no time to actually play baseball this summer. What have others done between their junior and senior years when faced with this same situation? He is a firm believer in being proactive and not waiting for coaches to come calling but there just seems to be no time to fit all of this in.
In addition he plays football in the fall which makes attending fall baseball events difficult. I now that we are not the first and won't be the last to go through this so I am looking for what others did that worked for them.
