Anyone have any information or experience with Tennessee Wesleyan? Would love to hear about their program. Please PM me.

Has been one of the best NAIA programs in the country for a while. A local kid dropped down from Western Carolina (I think) to TWU and hit many bombs. I have heard very good things about the HC. Very serious baseball there.
As an aside, my boy's first hitting instructor was a retired HC from TWU.
Thank you for the input. Already met the coaches. We are planning the "meet the players" and "watch a practice" trip next week.
Out of boredom* I looked at a lot of profiles of players. Most of the players getting playing time have previous college experience and transferred in.
* I can’t go biking. It’s raining with 25 mph wind. I tried taking a walk. Instead I was umbrella wrestling. I gave up.
Sorry for the hijack, but wow....Gloucester buoy had 32 foot seas for 2 hours. Yikes....
There were coastal towns with 70-80 mph wind gusts. It turns out the power is out at my home on the North Shore until sometime Thursday. Since I won’t be returning until Friday, not an issue.
Made the team visit on Friday. Team held their final inter squad game for their "World Series." They competed hard against each other and had fun fighting for bragging rights. Coach had great interaction with the players. Brought JETson into the dugout to hang out and meet all of the players.
All the feedback on the coach was positive. No red flags. Excellent feedback from the people/coaches that we trust that know the program. They are JuCo or transfer dominate school but they showed a lot of the "love" everyone talks about.
Son committed to Tennessee Wesleyan. Go Bulldogs.
Thank you everyone for your advice and support!
Awesome! Congratulations, and well deserved!
