Without further ado, here’s today’s article…
If you are reading this article, you probably have aspirations of one day playing college baseball. If that’s true, than understanding what college coaches are looking for becomes very important.
When most players and parents think about getting recruited, they think about throwing hard, running fast and hitting the ball far… They don’t understand that it goes way beyond that for most college coaches.
When it comes to being recruited College baseball coaches look for more than just talented players, they also take a serious look at the intangibles… especially at the D1 level where there is a lot of competition for each scholarship.
Today we are privileged to be joined by one of my favorite college coaches, University of Washington coach, Donegal Furgus.
Coach Furgus breaks down the intangibles that they look for at UW and the importance of keeping an open mind while going through the recruiting process… Enjoy.
