Talented high school baseball players throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties, and New York City are hoping to defray the hefty price tag of a college education using their talents on the baseball diamond. Yet according to the NCAA, only 6.4 percent of high school students go on to play collegiate baseball and fewer still receive athletic scholarships.
High school baseball players and their families can take more of a proactive approach to succeed on the college level and beyond. Pro1 Sportz, a full-service, integrated sports agency serving New York and New Jersey is offering a free, no obligation seminar for high school baseball players and their families on navigating through the college recruiting process.
Held at Hyatt Place (5 North Ave., Garden City) on Monday, Feb. 21 from 7–8:30 p.m., ball players and their families will learn how to stand-out among the 135,000 high school seniors competing for the 8,676 NCAA freshman roster positions available, how more NCAA baseball players reach the pro level than any other NCAA sport and how helping a student excel both athletically and academically can put families in a better position to gain financial assistance for higher education.
There is no cost for the seminar, but high school ball players and their families must register to attend. For more information or to sign-up, contact Herb Nusom, College Services advisor, Pro1 Sportz at 877-701-PRO1, ext. 102, or visit Pro1Sportz.com.
