WESLEYAN BASEBALL RECRUITING INFORMATION

Thank you for your interest in Wesleyan University and our baseball team!

Choosing a college is a life changing decision, because it is where you will live and play, socialize and study, for four years. It is also important because it sets the stage for your post-college connections, career and social circle. Attending a top academic college and being around the best minds of your generation is a thrilling experience.

Additionally, playing college baseball is an amazing thing - Big games, spring trips, great fields, home runs, strikeouts and best friends combine to make it the experience of a lifetime.

What do you like best about baseball? What position do you see yourself playing in college? Do you want to play or coach after college? What are favorite subjects to study? What do you want to learn in college? What are your interests outside of baseball and academics? What kind of people do you want to meet in college?

These are some of the questions we in the Wesleyan baseball program are interested in talking with you about. We hope to be in touch soon.
