AFC West Coast Academy Baseball

As a baseball parent, have you ever wondered why you are spending thousands of dollars for your son to travel all over the country for showcases and tournements and yet he still has no college offers??

This is a question I hear hundreds of times from parents every year, and the answer is quite simple:  college coaches DO NOT go to showcases to "discover new talent. "  With the average college baseball coach receiving around $1000 a year to recruit,  these college coaches are going to see players that are already on their radar, and they need a closer look (and time) to get to know them. This is why your son is not getting looked at; it has nothing to do with his talent but with the fact he is not on the coaches' radar!

This is why AFC West Coast Baseball is so unique.  We work with college coaches at all levels from NCAA D1, 2, 3, NAIA, and JUCO.  What we do that is so different is we create a player profile of your son (with grades, measurables, and video) and send it to the coaches well in advance of the tournaments, so the coaches already know who your son is; if interested, they usually reach out even before you get to the tournament. 

As an example:  Grant Eidschun from San Diego, CA was sent out to all Pac 12 and West Coast colleges last year, about a month before playing with AFC in a showcase in Phoenix, AZ.  Grant was contacted 2 weeks before the showcase by Arizona State, U of Arizona, UCLA, Santa Barbara, San Diego State, Cal Poly SLO, and a few others, asking what day he was pitching.  He spent the showcase talking with these coaches and was able to pitch with most of them watching.  He was an 8th grader.   Before Grant's freshman year, he was verbally offered by over 16 of these colleges and accepted Arizona State.  Before AFC he had had no contact.  (Below is Grant Eidschun with fellow ASU scholarship baseball player (6'7 RHP) Kevin McCann...)  

 Who do you want to be, the athlete signed by a college or the athlete that is only hoping to?   The choice is yours!!!
