Attention Youth Baseball Players! You are a Business.
If you’re a youth athlete and have a true and passionate desire to play baseball at a high level, YOU ARE NOW A BUSINESS!
Today, players are beginning to get recruited by HS coaches starting at the 12U levels. Perhaps you’re starting to receive the pitches from private school coaches in the area. Perhaps a coach or two has shown up to a game. Beginning as early as the 6th, 7th and 8th grades, the game begins to change. You are not just playing a youth sport as a leisure hobby any more. You are now entering the Business World! This mindset shift can make the difference between a long career and washing out before getting that first contract.
To ALL the families out there that have a son, or daughter for the softball families, being recruited at the High School, College or Professional level, congratulations. Your family is now the brand new Owners of, (Enter Your Last Name), LLC!
In this multi part series, my goal is to shine light on the untold and unknown side of youth and professional baseball. ALL parents and athletes who have the drive, passion and talent to play baseball at the highest levels need to know how and why You Are a Business.
What do I mean by that? That you are now the Owners of …….., LLC. Join the TCP Charity blog to learn more. Part 1 of the Attention Youth Baseball Players! You are a Business series will be out Sept. 23, 2016.
