College Baseball in the US

Over 1,700 universities in the USA offer scholarships for baseball players that would like to combine baseball with their studies. College baseball is the way to become a better baseball player, to develop, train and compete in an environment surrounded by other dedicated student-athletes.

In addition, you will earn a university degree which will lay the foundation for a successful career. Many college baseball players see playing in college as a pathway to professional baseball career.

How does college baseball work?

College baseball is a bit different than “regular” baseball; in organisation and in atmosphere. You don’t play for a club team, but for a university team. This is the highest possible competition for junior players out of the United States.

On average, a team consists of 35 players, with whom you will train almost every day. Your team will compete against other university teams in your conference and on a national level. The ultimate goal? Winning the conference! This means you will qualify for the national championships, where only the best teams in the US can play.

The biggest difference between college baseball and regular baseball is the atmosphere during games. Baseball is one of the biggest sports in the US and many fans come to watch every single game. Teammates and fans are extremely loud, support each other and create chants to hype everyone up. Don’t be surprised if thousands of fans show up at a game and start screaming for (or against) you: the energy level is very high!

Requirements & Scholarships

The college baseball system is divided into seven different divisions. Each division offers its own unique culture and experience and has different degrees of competitiveness. Slamstox helps baseball players with international experience but also helps regionally active players.

Based on your level and ambitions we will select a division and a university that best fits your profile.

Academic requirements

To play college baseball you have to graduate high school. Depending on your country and your academic background, we can select a university and a college baseball pathway that fits your academic standard.

American universities offer a wide range of courses catered towards different education levels. So, as long as you meet the requirements, we will be able to help you find a university that matches your level and your area of interest. Are you not sure whether you meet the requirements? Feel free to contact us.

Scholarships

Studying at an American university can cost up to $75,000 per year. However, almost all universities with a baseball team offer athletic (and academic) scholarships to cover these costs.

Slamstox helps you find scholarships so that your college baseball experience will be financially affordable. Some Slamstox players receive full scholarships, which means they do not have to pay anything for four years of college baseball and studies. Others receive partial scholarships that cover part of the total cost of attendance. Your scholarship depends on your athletic level, academic level, wishes and ambitions.
