Do you think you might have what it takes to make it on the next level? Are you a freshmen through senior? You don't have to be an elite athlete to get one of the tens of thousands of scholarship available each year but you do have to do something to get noticed! It's never is too early, but you could be too late -- don't be that person!
If you already have enough recruiter attention, Vivolve.com is certainly not for you.
VIVOLVE.com is sweeping the nation with thousands already registered for FREE! Its the best deal money doesn't need to buy.
Did you Vivolve? Your competition has!
Baseball appeals to a wide range of people with a wide range of beliefs, so I'll apologize in advance if I offend anybody who feels that Evolution has not been proven to be the primary method by which life forms have developed on this planet.
I am not sure that I believe in Vivolution, but I do believe in Evolution, and so I know that you and I have evolved from a common ancestor. My branch of the family tree turned into human beings, while yours turned into spammers.
Whats that Mr.B?....its the wrong song?
This it you say?
Maybe this is it Cubbies?
"thousands already registered for FREE! Its the best deal money doesn't need to buy."
Is this one of them Black Friday ads?
For the HS players out there I would advise not buying into this crap. What, after all, is the next level? The next year of HS?
Here are some unhappy realities.
First, how good you can become was determined at conception. Your size, your speed, your arm, etc. are all predetermined at conception. These innate qualities can only be minimally improved no matter how hard you work. But up the ladder, even these small improvements can be the difference makers.
Skills such as technique refinement in throwing, pithing, batting and the like can be developed with hard work but only to the degree that your innate qualities will allow. Significant progress can be acquired in skills.
If you are serious about going on in the game and if you want to be considered for MLB you must develop the mental side of the game, such things as mental toughness in dealing with failures. You must also develop a passion for the game, be willing to work on your own without prodding, develop your strength using the weight room, etc.
If you have what it takes physically and mentally you will be found. Letters of interest from schools are fun to receeive but put their value into the proper perspective. It means you are on their radar if you progress to the level necessary. You are not there yet. You must get yourself there.
Charlatans are a dime a dozen trying to hustle you with snake oil and promises of grandeur. Talk to your HS coach and athletic director for a reality check as to your abilities and what you are shooting for as well as how to get it. Enjoy and respect the game.
Finally, remember that someone hawking their services through spamming should be looked at with great suspicion, especcially one with as poor grammar as the one writing the title of this post.

"Finally, remember that someone hawking their services through spamming should be looked at with great suspicion, especcially one with as poor grammar as the one writing the title of this post."
Ironic that someone who can't properly spell 'especcially', in a very long run-on sentence, would be criticizing grammar but we all get your point.
The fact of the matter is that there is ZERO cost for a student to sign up for Vivolve.
Also, we offer nobody 'promises of grandeur', rather just another way to market themselves beyond what their capabilities are. We don't evaluate talent or tell anybody what it takes to play in college or the pros. We are just a spot for the athletes to compile all their data and highlight videos for FREE-- that's all.
"Letters of interest from schools are fun to receeive but put their value into the proper perspective. It means you are on their radar if you progress to the level necessary. You are not there yet. You must get yourself there."
We are in total agreement, hence our FREE service. Another 'unhappy reality', however, is that not every college in the country has a recruiting budget like a Top 10 school and therefore many players are overlooked-- that is a fact! While we have what is considered elite athletes registered, most of the athletes that register with Vivolve are those that are not Top 10 school material and known commodities. Vivolve allows the 90% of the other players to expose themselves.
Further, if you think that all coaches and ADs do whatever it takes to get their players into college, you are living in a fool's paradise. There are MANY coaches that help their kids in HUGE ways. On the flipside, though, there are those that feel that it is not their job. They are the ones that leave the kids on their own to fend for themselves after that kid has put his heart and soul into the program. This is not speculative, it is based on 30 years of firsthand observations and it is why Vivolve was created!
What the 'HS players out there' need to know is that someone giving their viewpoint some 3200 plus times does not make them an authority on everything. All it makes them is someone that values his own opinion very much!
Vivolve is in the business of helping kids. We are available anytime to have a conversation about what we do and don't do. That way when you take shots at us, at least they will be backed by some facts and educated!
This board is geared towards LL and similar age programs.
"What the 'HS players out there' need to know is" ... they can find out everything they need to know about getting to the next level at hsbaseballweb.com.
Their board doesn't put up with spammers. They toss them quickly.
