My son entered his senior year in highschool today, and he wants to play college baseball. He’s our first, so we don’t know anything about college recruiting, etc. A month ago he attended a $60 dollar pitching camp to get some pitching tips, and to our surprise, came home with a scholarship offer. Last Sunday, he attended a Baseball Factory showcase (his first showcase ever), and today they called and said they had chosen him for the Under Armour National Team…they say he has strong Div I potential. They want him to be one of 14 boys on the team they take to Jupiter Florida next month–for $2999 a boy. They say he will get big exposure to Div I scouts and needs the promotion and training they provide. Does anyone know anything about these organizations? They want an answer from us by Thursday. Is this a real distinguished honor that’s worth $2999 or is it a money-making scheme that uses the Div I potential as bait?
I would be GREATLY appreciative of comments from anyone who has knowledge about this program.
