Ans. No, it is never too late. Our Fall Season is strictly a developmental season. Kids get to develop through practice and games, and play multiple positions, and generally come back stronger players in the competitive Spring Season.
Ans. Soccer tends to complement the baseball schedule, with soccer games being played in the morning and baseball games being played in the afternoon/evening. Parents doing soccer and baseball have found the two play well together.
Basketball season winds down in March right as Spring baseball season is kicking off, so it is a nice segue. Kids that play AAU basketball past March still continue to develop and compete on a high level in baseball.
More football players should try the sport of baseball. Football players tend to be very successful at baseball because of the athleticism required in football. During the Fall Season, our football families have found Sunday practices and double headers very agreeable to their football schedule, and our football players continue to develop and play and compete in baseball at a very high level.
Russell Wilson, the starting Quarterback for NFL's Seattle Seahawks, was recently drafted by MLB's Texas Rangers. NFL Hall of Famer Deion “Prime Time” Sanders excelled in baseball and football throughout his youth and far into his professional career. During the 1989 season, he hit a major league home run and scored a touchdown in the NFL in the same week, the only player ever to do so. Sanders is also the only man to play in both a Super Bowl and a World Series.
Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson is the greatest two sport athlete ever. He is the only athlete to be named an All-Star in two major American sports, baseball and football. He was named the greatest athlete of all time by ESPN. In 1989, he was voted to start for the American League All-Star team, and was named the game's MVP for his play on both offense and defense. He led off the bottom of the first—his first All-Star plate appearance—with a monstrous 448-foot home run off Rick Reuschel of the San Francisco Giants. NBC-TV & Dodgers announcer Vin Scully exclaimed, "Look at that one! Bo Jackson says hello!"
