WESLEYAN BASEBALL RECRUITING INFORMATION

Thank you for your interest in Wesleyan University and our baseball team!

Choosing a college is a life changing decision, because it is where you will live and play, socialize and study, for four years. It is also important because it sets the stage for your post-college connections, career and social circle. Attending a top academic college and being around the best minds of your generation is a thrilling experience.

Additionally, playing college baseball is an amazing thing - Big games, spring trips, great fields, home runs, strikeouts and best friends combine to make it the experience of a lifetime.

Wesleyan Baseball actively seeks out GREAT GUYS who LOVE BASEBALL. The result is a true team that works and strives together to achieve great success both individually and as a team.

These are some of the things we are interested in talking with you about. We hope to be in touch soon.
