Decision time

I'm currently a senior and I'm being recruited for baseball by Lebanon Valley College and Albright College but I feel like I might be a better fit at a bigger university like temple. Would it be better from an academic prospective to go to LVC or Temple? Looking to major in economics.

    Does Temple have interest in you for Baseball?

    Doubtful that Temple baseball has an interest, since Temple axed both baseball and softball (as well as some other athletic teams). Quite a shame, really.

    Yeah baseball would only be club possible, no baseball there

    You should go to Temple if you would be happier there, and have a better chance of getting the education you need to be successful in life.Doesn't sound like baseball should be the number one factor in deciding on a college for you. Many kids quit sports after a year or two-coach leaves, not enough playing time, get injured, or just don't want to spend the time. Unless you are an o;Olympic hopeful or planning a professional athletic career, athletics should be secondary, not primary, when choosing a college.
