Default About to have a crazy week

Went to my 2nd ever baseball showcase today. I just graduated HS ad was hoping to play baseball next year but hasn't talked to a coach at all and had no recruitment. I threw a personal best 87 mph (left hander) accurately. More than 75 coaches showed up with over 300 players coming. Anyways I was the last person to leave because I had 12 coaches come up that wanted me to join their college teams. Lol. I have 2 weeks till college starts and 1 or less to decide where I want to play. Crazy day for me. Sorry if I messed up typing (on my phone). My phone is blown up with misses calls and texts. Haha!

Congrats. Hope you pick the right college & succeed.

Maybe we'll be seeing Topps USA cards of you in about 2-3 years or so. Hoping that is the case. :-)

Unless you are attending Harvard, the location of your undergraduate degree means much less than the location of a graduate degree.

Go where you leave with the least debt.

Unless if you are looking to get on a major league baseball team, than location does matter. Getting into a championship level college in college ball can help you a long way!
