DIY College Rankings Baseball Spreadsheet

Find the colleges that will recruit you to play college baseball.

The fundamental fact of college baseball recruiting is that you can’t be recruited if the coach doesn’t know that you exist. Gone are the days of a player being spotted at their local high school game.

Too many players worry about colleges finding them.

What they need to do is to find the colleges that will want them.

But there are over 1,500 colleges that offer baseball programs.

How do you decide from over 1500 colleges?

What you need to do is to create a general list of up to 50 acceptable colleges and then start narrowing it based on the following:

  • specifics of the baseball teams such as how many players are at your position
  • contact with the coaches
  • academic offerings

To generate this list, you need to find out two sets of information about the colleges: what you really need to know and what you should know.

What you really need to know about colleges:
  • Does it fit your athletic abilities?
    Division Level and Conference indicates the general competitive level of the school. You can make a good first cut with this information. Three of the four final schools my son was considering were in the same conference.
  • Can you get in?
    The SAT/ACT profile will give you an idea if it will be easier or harder for you to be admitted.
  • Can you afford it?
    More than likely, you won’t have a scholarship and will be paying the tuition bill yourself. You need to know the Average Net Price so that you know what kind of bills you’ll be looking at.
  • Will you get a degree?
    Graduation Rates indicate your chances of graduating if you deciding to quit playing baseball.
What you really should know about colleges:
  • How many people will be competing for positions on the team?
    At the most basic level, the bigger the school, the more competition exists to play on the team.
  • Will there be anyone in the stands?
    Are students generally involved with campus activities? In other words, is anyone going to care about the baseball team? The higher the percentage of students who are part-time and the lower the dorm availability, the more likely the college is a commuter campus with less student support and involvement.
  • How much does the college care about baseball?
    Knowing how much a school spends on baseball compared to other sports or other schools in its conference shows the relative importance of baseball at the school.
  • Will your grades make you more competitive?
    The lower the acceptance rate, the more your academic credentials can help you to narrow the competition. You only have to compete against other with similar gpas and test scores.

All of this information is readily available for colleges and can be found through various college search websites. But you can’t find all the information for all of the colleges that offer baseball programs in one place for you to sort as needed–except here.
