About Baseball Scholarships and The Recruiting Process

There are a large amount of opportunities for baseball scholarships, with over 1,600 college baseball programs  across the country. College Baseball is considered an equivalency sport, so programs are able to split up full scholarships among prospective student athletes, in order to recruit more talent. The good majority of baseball scholarships awarded today, are not full scholarships. It is important with Baseball scholarships to cast a wide net when considering possible colleges/universities to attend.

As a high school baseball recruit, you will want to have a quality video that shows consistency throughout your career. For example, as a pitcher, coaches want to see video of you striking out many batters, and not just the 5 games you struck out a batter to end the game. Displaying the basic fundamentals of your position will also be crucial in preparing a good video for college coaches. Using a third party service like, The Athletic Scholar, can improve your chances at landing the sports scholarship of your dreams!

Basic Academic Guidelines to be Eligible

High school student athletes need to earn a 3.0 GPA, 24 ACT, and at least 1000 out of 1600 on the SAT in order to become eligible to compete at the collegiate level.
