Importance of developing a Baseball Resume

You should create a template introduction letter that you will send to each college coach. In this letter you should introduce yourself, explain why you are contacting the coach, why you are interested in the university and baseball program. A baseball resume should resemble the format of a business resume. You will want to include your personal info, academic info, baseball awards and accolades, and any baseball references (coaches, scouts, instructors) that can be a judge of character and talent. You should send your introduction letter and baseball resumé hard copy through the mail and also through email. If you’re using email, make sure your email address is professional and appropriate.
