To become a professional baseball player or to play in college, you have to have a high level of experience at a younger age. This sets you up for recruitment and scholarship opportunities. There have been players who have walked on at the collegiate level, but this is very rare. It is a very competitive profession. If you have a strong desire and passion to be involved in the sport of baseball there are other avenues to take besides playing the game. Sports Management majors get a well rounded background and experiences in many industries. You will need to study hard and learn as much as you can. But it can be very fun and gratifying to be involved in a sport you love. Good luck!
