College baseball is a robust and effective player development system that has produced several successful Australian careers, both on and off the field.
More than 1,200 college baseball teams offer athletic scholarships and several prominent Australians – from Craig Shipley to Josh Spence – started their careers in college baseball. Baseball Australia has assembled several resources to help educate families about the American college baseball system and its scholarship opportunities.
