Get MORE from a Travel Team than Just a Trophy ..
So often is the case when a player enlists to play on a "travel team" the expectation is the player will IMPROVE his skills, because he's is playing 'better competition' .
Modestly speaking from 27 years of Coaching Experience -
This idea is NOT exactly accurate.
Speaking in the light as one who formerly worked in the Pro Scouting Dept.,
Whenever a player gets EVALUATED ... BASEBALL ACTIONS MATTER not his trophies
When a player gets to the age of being recruited, the coach or scouts don't care about your TROPHIES, they want to see a 'BALLPLAYER"
BOTTOM LINE .. when the season is over.. Ask yourself this question,
"Does my player's BASEBALL ACTIONS look any different NOW ..
Than when the season first began? "
