#3: Next Level Success
Like I said in the video, shouldn’t the most important thing as a coaching staff is getting your players ready to succeed at the next level if that is what their dream is? I understand that some players have “maxed out” by the time they get to college and that their room for development is small but I believe if programs spent more time on developing their players by using all means possible to do so and less time focusing on bunt defenses and first and third plays then maybe more of their players would have more successful college and pro careers.
Who Helps Their Players the Most?
Find out what schools are really devoting their time and effort to finding the most efficient, effective and informative ways to help their players succeed at college and onto the next level.
Here is a great article from the NCAA on the number of players from each school on 2017 postseason rosters. (Shout out Jim Penders, Head Coach at UConn, who is one of the best people in college baseball and has FIVE players on postseason rosters)
This can also be applied to junior colleges who do a really good job of getting “fringe” players out of high school and turning them into high-level college prospects after developing at the junior college level.
