DC Grays Baseball recently hosted a Zoom seminar for aspiring college baseball and softball players. More than 80 DC Grays RBI middle school and high school families participated in the call, which was lead by Harry Thomas, DC Grays RBI softball director and Brad Burris, Director of Player Development for DC Grays RBI.
Coppin State University Athletic Director Derek Carter discussed the college recruiting process, and Coppin State compliance director Vera Carrington discussed critical policies and procedures for prospective college athletes.
Tonja Braxton from the National Scouting Service and Van Graves from Top Prospect Network shared tips and helpful hints for how scholastic baseball and softball players can market themselves to college coaches.
"These professionals did a great job helping our players understand what it takes to become college ballplayers," said Thomas, himself the head softball coach at Washington Adventist University. Several of Thomas' DC Grays RBI softball players have gone on to play college softball - several at the Division 1 level. "These kids and their families are so dedicated, and the kids work so hard. We want to do everything we can to help them make that next step."
