KPB Recruiting 101

Step 1: What to Read and Research

The ‘Read This’ section of Step 1 aims to give you some basic information about what it takes to play college baseball and help you meet the learning goals of the ‘Learn This’ section. This includes:

  • What it takes to make a college roster at each position
  • How to prepare for the academic rigors as a collegiate student-athlete
  • Information about the different levels of college baseball
  • Introductory articles about some of the questions and fears that recruits have about the recruiting process

And much more.

We don’t want to overwhelm you on Step 1, so we have limited the resources in the ‘Read This’ section to the essentials. This stage is all about exploring your curiosity and getting a better understanding of the hard work, dedication, and expectations of being a collegiate baseball player. In addition to the articles in ‘Read This’, you’ll want to start exploring other questions you have about college baseball. Use the search tool in the upper right corner to search more detailed questions you have or topics that interest you. The Categories search tool in the side bar is another great way to explore Step 1 topics of interest. The  information on this website is all about college baseball, the recruiting process, and what it takes to play at the next level. There’s no pressure here,  search for things that interest you or look up questions you have about college baseball.

These topics and keywords are particularly useful to search for Step 1: Division I, Division II, Division III, NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA, College Baseball, Levels and Division, On Campus, Standard of Play
