Is it true you have 4 years no matter what? So if i was like 45 and good enough to play college ball i could play as long as I was taking X amount of credits? Is there a maximum age.
I’m 22 and going to a community college and working, my CC doesn’t have an athletic program but I’m earning an associates degree which would transfer to any other school once i’m done. Basically getting my science, math, history, english, etc…out of the way at a cheaper CC price.
I went to tryout for a local juco right after high school, i felt good about it but the guy said i needed to put on weight and improve my speed. I was like 170 lbs then and i’m about 225 now, and much faster.
When i was 19 or 20 i went to a chicago white sox tryout and I felt even better about that, I was a little intimidated at first simply it being a pro tryout and all, but all my fielding was clean, I hit the ball well to all fields, line drives but was told “i need to use my legs more”. So i’ve improved on that, i was definetly swinging with mainly upper body and wasn’t rotating my hips well enough. But shortly after that I had a shoulder impingement injury and couldn’t throw for a while and now I’m as healthy as i’m gonna get, great shape.
I just started pitching again which i had stopped since my shoulder injury, and my arm strength is better then ever.
Do you have to be a full time student to play sports?
