yes, there is a differance in rec ball and travel ball,and if you all knew anything you would know that a rec team is made up of kids with different skill levels.rec teams are for everyone not just a select few. i think people that play travel ball think they are so much better than eveyone else.yes,they have good players ,but lets take this a step farther,would a rec all star team stay on the field with your wounderful travel team?

Back off. Her comment has nothing to do with anything that was said on the other threads. She made a good point about this thread. Don't stir shit up that doesn't need to be stirred.

My son is 13 and has played travel/competitive baseball since hewas 13. From my experience i will tell you this...the coaching is better and the competition is much better. The team my son plays on is categorized as a major level team and we have players from several different states. We dont practice, we just meet wherever the tournament is and play. We travel alot, its expensive, but its what we do. My wife and I have also developed great friendships with some of the other parents and it fun to hang out all weekend with friends. My son has also developed alot of close friendships with his teammates.

Travel ball does not make your son/daughter better. The time and money wasted would be better in invested in your child's training and education. Playing a bunch of tournaments will not do a thing to improve your son's playing ability. He will get some at bats and maybe a few grounders or fly balls the whole weekend. You will spend $300.00 to $500.00 on that out of town tournament, being on the conservative side of spending. Why not spend the time hitting 200-300 grounders or fly balls to your son. Why not have your son take 300-500 swings of batting drills. Why not let your son do pitching or catching drills over the weekend. I would put my money on any ball player who trains hard and puts in the extra effort on the weekends working out and doing drills over a kid who spent most of his weekends playing "select" travel ball tournaments.

DJJ55, please allow me to say, you are totally clueless. 'Drills' never overcome experience. With a true select team, a child is afforded the opportunity to play against the best players in their age group. There's a million batting cage hitters that can't touch a ball at the plate. So much of any sport is mental...develope that in a 'drill'. The challenges of playing against the best provide a huge advantage to kids that are serious in the sport they play. And btw, those kids that are serious are also taking the 200-300 grounders and 300-500 swings during the week in preparing for the weekend. It's not for every child and it should certainly be the child that desires to do it, not the parent.
