Graham’s Answer

Hi Noah! I'm not a professional baseball player but my cousin was a first round draft pick to the San Francisco Giants and spent ~7 years on the team or on various minor league teams.

To get there, he started playing baseball basically year round by age about 12 or 13. In high school, he went to various camps over the summer and would play in local leagues (outside of his school district) during non-spring seasons, then would play for his school during the Spring. There was also a lot that went into college recruitment during this time -- at those camps or leagues, he was always meeting with coaches or staff from different programs, or doing special workouts.

When he got to college (he played at Boston College) he shared that practices were similar to high school but were more physically demanding. He also spent his summers playing in semi-pro leagues, and similar to college recruitment, he was actively meeting with people from professional teams throughout this team. He was eventually drafted after his junior year in college.

A memorable moment for me (and I hope for him too, haha) was seeing his first game at the Giants! It was great to cheer him on and see him achieve his dream!
