Be Informed During Your College Baseball Search
Data asymmetry is a massive challenge during the college baseball recruiting process. College coaches typically have access to a robust set of performance data on prospective players. This information is often made accessible to coaches through scouting organizations like Perfect Game, or is sometimes collected directly at camps hosted by the program. That same level of transparency is typically not available for players who want to get a better understanding of college coaches and the way they run their baseball programs. When making important college decisions, student-athletes rely on first impressions, experiences at official/unofficial visits, and word of mouth recommendations. To no surprise, these inputs fail a lot of players.
A key component of your college baseball search and recruitment should be thoroughly researching the programs that you are interested in. Rosters, records, and player statistics can tell you so much about a college coach and the baseball program as a whole. Some of the key indicators are relatively easy to see, while others will take some time and effort to uncover.
