Baseball Recruited Athletes - How to Get Scholarship Offers

By Gary V Hawkins

If you find yourself as a baseball recruited athlete and you don't quite know what to do next, this article can help you stay on track to playing in college. Being recruited is just the beginning of the process and you want to make sure you give yourself the best shot at playing college baseball.

Once you begin being recruited, here are some steps you want to take:

1- Keep The Lines Of Communication Open

Once a coach has made contact with you, you want to make sure that you stay in contact. Send him periodic updates on you and your team. Although you are already a baseball recruited athlete, don't make the coach wonder if you still have in interest in his program.

2- Save Everything

Save all your press clipping and articles and use some of them to update the coaches.

3- Don't Assume Anything

Coaches usually recruit several players for each position. Just because they are showing interest in you don't assume the offers will start rolling in. Keep working hard.

4- Continue To Get Better

Even as a baseball recruited athlete, you want to strive to get better. Coaches want players who are never satisfied with their skills and who are constantly working to get better.

5- Don't Let Your Grades Slip

Coaches will be comparing you to your competition in all ways... including your grades. Don't let your grades be the reason you don't get any offers to play in college.

If you do these five things, you can put yourself in a good position to get offers as a baseball recruited athlete. If you are not being recruited or you want more college competing for your services, I recommend marketing and promoting yourself to college coaches. A simple athletic resume and a personal letter is all it takes to get the process started. If coaches have an interest, they will make contact with you.
