Yeah you could go somewhere. I dont know about scholarship, but you might want to contact some area coaches about walking on and provide them with a video or something of yourself.

Hey livedtroy. You should also try to get to some showcase camps. There they can evaluate you against the competition. They will also honestly let you know your chances and also keep a running record on you for college coaches to look at. Big schools might be sound good, but your in N.B. and you could go to a great pitching school like Amherst in mass. where you could have a great like Bill Thurston teaching you. Think about that, there are many great programs in the states, not just big schools. There are also only 11 or so scholarships available on D-1 programs and those go quickly. Good luck and work all year.
