College Baseball Recruiting 2009 - Making Sure College Coaches Know Who You Are

By Gary V Hawkins

With the start of the new high school season, it's time to get serious about college baseball recruiting 2009. If your goal is to make it to the college level, you have take responsibility for your own recruitment. Don't leave your recruiting hopes to your high school coach, unless you like being disappointed!

The first thing you need to know about college baseball recruiting 2009 is that it's a very competitive process. It always has been, and it always will be. There are thousands of kids playing baseball all around the world who are eligible for baseball scholarships. You must be considered a well above average high school player and have the talent to play baseball at the college level.

Beyond the competition, some players struggle to get recruited because they play at a small high school or in a region not known for producing baseball talent. If you find yourself in one of these situations, you can still be recruited, but you have to take some steps to make sure your name and baseball talents are known by college coaches.

Are you depending completely on your high school coach to promote you during the college baseball recruiting 2009 season? If you are, you are making a big mistake. Most high school coaches don't get active in promoting their players to colleges. This happens because many of them really don't understand the recruiting and scholarship process themselves. Even coaches make the mistake of falsely assuming a player will be recruited by someone if they are good enough to play at some level of college baseball.

The biggest problem is most athletes do not properly market and promote themselves to college coaches. If you have the talent to play at some level of college competition, you must take the initiative to market and promote yourself during the college baseball recruiting 2009 season. You need to send letters and emails to college coaches and let them know about you and how you can help their baseball program be successful.

If getting noticed during the college baseball recruiting 2009 season is your goal, you can make it a reality. You don't have to be an elite level player that every college coach in America already knows about. You can simply be a very good player who becomes excellent at promoting and marketing yourself.
