Thoughts on the new recruiting calendar

What's on your mind?

by Spazsdad » Mon Oct 09, 2017 8:34 pm

So as we get into the Fall season what are people's opinions on the revised recruiting calendar. What, if anything is your team doing different, more practices, more tournaments?
Here in SoCal the last 3 weekends that would have been played in showcase format; unlimited subs, bat whatever, have been tournament play. Definitely not the norm here and also a bit of a jolt to some players that are satisfied with their 4 innings and 2 at bats be done mentality.

DD in 18U "Gold" Already committed, noticed that the College program has also changed, they are playing practice games earlier and the season has started to look like travel ball! Looks like the SB world is changing!

Recruiting calendar only changed for D1 and 6-weekend eval period starts 10/14. Non-D1 schools might view earlier events as encouraging sign that participants are interested in them. Has anyone played in any showcases this fall knowing D1 wouldn't be there?

here's a great website to connect with college based summer, fall, winter and spring camps.
