Get yourself a no B.S. evaluation of your overall abilities by someone who DOESN'T know you. More than one wouldn't hurt either. Keep in mind that people mature physically and mentally at different ages. If you're a late bloomer, you could conceivably hit your stride at the right time. Remember, Joe Paterno said, "give me a kid who never played football but is a good athlete... I'll teach him how to play football"...

I wouldnt get discouraged. Find what you do best and practice that most. Get on a select team, but most importantly do not give up. The Astros had a player that did NOT play high school BB.

Michael Jordan got cut from his high school basketball team and look how that turned out. Coaches make mistakes too. Stay motivated and keep working hard and your dream may come true!

Not all high school baseball coaches are truly baseball coaches who are the best judges of your ability and your potential. Go get a real evaluation from someone at a higher level or from a personal coach who will be honest with you about your ability now and what your capability to succeed to really is with determination and effort.

Not a big deal, i had a terrible high school experience with sports. i tried out for varsity as a freshman with confidence that i had a shot, got cut from varsity, got cut from j'v, played freshman. the following year tried out for jv, ended up getting in a fight the week of try outs. because of the fight i was told i could not play. didn't bother trying to play my last 2 years of hs. but something in me said don't give up on reaching my goal of playing college ball, i know i am a better player than i had been given credit for. so instead of playing with my high school team senior year, i was working out with my father, doing fielding drills and hitting drills like we always did, and going to the cages on occasion. It was at the batting cage where we had met a father of a player from a local 18U travel team, who noticed that i could hit, and gave us information on trying out for the team. that gave me a chance to get use to playing competitively again and help me prepare for playing in

college. i didn't have the best grades so i went to my local community college, i had inquired about playing baseball during my senior year of hs, gad i did that because fall ball try outs started a week before classes did. Try outs was tough, with 50+ guys trying out for an 18 man roster, i did whatever i could to get noticed. main thing was to never half ass anything, always go hard. So i made the team, best feeling ever especially after the rough hs experience i had. I played in college for 2 years, satisfied that i reached my goal of playing college baseball.but, it doesn't stop there. i then played softball for a few years because thats what some of my friends were doing, then didn't play anything for about 9 years. now at 34 years old, i have a friend who is younger, who played division 1 baseball and in the minor league for an independent team, who still plays mens amateur baseball, i had known there were leagues but didn't really feel like chasing the dream by myself. but this
