College Baseball Insights featured on KPB

“Every level of college baseball is more competitive than ever. With the transfer portal booming and rosters full of older, experienced college returners, players looking for 4-year opportunities out of high school are feeling the squeeze in a big way. Junior college (“JUCO”) programs, long a hotbed for development, competition, and moving players to the next level, have become even more of a proving ground for players hoping to play at 4-year schools or beyond.
