So if your a player in small town Kentucky/Mississippi/Maine/Arkansas/Tennessee that plays C ball. Traveled to worlds 3 years in a row. hit .700+ all 3 years. CC team and lead the team in average and played well defensively your performing at the right time, But eyes will never see you at the local open tourneys with 6 teams right?? WE all don't have money or know someone... I mean id like to see a break down of Conference players per state residence. Gems out there hiding for sure. You watch the Games online.. Its not hard to throw strikes, its not hard to stay out of the middle with a runner on 1st, its not hard to be a good team mate, its not hard to hustle.. Yet again.. week after week you see pitchers with multiple walks, bad team mates, DP balls right to the middle man, and no hustle from some guys bc they didn't get the result they wanted.. I believe Most players at the C/B level would take an opportunity to try out mid season for a conference team if they fully believe in them selves and think they can compete at that level with no consequences.
DW.. I agree with all said. The higher you go the harder it gets. .800 E hitter is a .700 D hitter which turns into a .650 C hitter which turns into a .500 Conference hitter. The conference are full of .600 a below hitters. Its not that these guys are tearing it up at conference events and not getting a chance. Its the fact that they don't get seen on the conference stage since most C and B team (non conference) might be lucky and get 2/4 games a year in the conference. How do they get seen??? I know JK, and Rhino help a ton but lets be honest... Do you have to know someone to get a shot?? Does someone have to stick their neck out for you etc.. is what I'm asking. What if you don't live within 4/5 hours of a conference player? How do you go about asking to take BP with them... etc
