KROSS Baseball, a leading consulting agency for study baseball abroad, will organize an information session on its study baseball abroad programs in Seoul, Busan and Gwangju. Starting from Seoul at the Mokdong Youth Training Center on October 6, the session will be held in Busan at the Yangjung Youth Training Center on October 14 and in Gwangju at the Gwangju Training Center on October 15.
As information on study baseball abroad programs in the U.S. is more difficult to get compared to those in Japan and Taiwan, a large number of high school seniors and their parents are keen to get information on the KROSS Baseball program in the U.S.
Most of high school graduates with baseball specialty do not go to the U.S. to study baseball due to a lack of information. The session will explain the admission procedure and screening process of two year colleges along with living experience through interviews with various groups of people. The session will focus on the benefits that two-year colleges offer compared with four-year universities.
JiHyun Nam, C.E.O. of KROSS Baseball, says. “I want to show senior student-athletes the greater opportunity for success that two-year colleges offer. Among the 800 Korean baseball student-athlete graduates for each year, only 200 go to the Korean pro league or Korean universities with the remaining 600 graduates in need of an alternative. I want to give them alternative ways to succeed in both baseball and life in a bigger market.”
KROSS Baseball’s service was inspired by the idea of Yoonjae Nam, who played baseball from elementary school to university receiving a scholarship in St. Louis, MO. Particularly Yoonjae Nam is the only Korean baseball student-athlete in Missouri and Illinois states. He studied at Onley Central College before being transferred to Maryville University of St. Louis. Coach Dennis Conley, who has trained his baseball team at Olney Central College for 39 years producing over 40 MLB players, will come to the showcase at Team-up Campus, Gonjiam on November 6-8. Coaches from five community colleges in four different states will participate in the showcase.
“The Information Session on Study Baseball Abroad in U.S. Colleges” is free of charge to provide the useful and valuable information to as many parents and students as possible. You can find more information at KROSS Baseball’s official website.
