Keeping Your Social Media Professional as a Baseball Recruit

Social media has crudely weaved its way into the fabric of our society. While it's a nice platform to keep in touch with loved ones or to connect with people who have common interests, remember that everything put online is public for anyone-- and I mean ANYONE--to see. That being said, here are some tips on how you can maintain a professional social media persona:

1. Don't post anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to see.

This is a good rule of thumb for life in general, but it's especially important when it comes to social media. Remember, anything you post online is public information. So, if you wouldn't want your grandmother to see it, don't post it!

This rule applies to all sorts of things - from photos and videos to status updates and comments. Even if you think your account is private, there's always a chance that someone will find a way to see what you've posted.

So, before you hit that "post" button, ask yourself if you want the whole world to see what you're sharing. Chances are if you wouldn't want your grandmother to see it, it's probably not worth posting.

2. Use social media to your advantage.

College baseball coaches are always on the lookout for talented players who can help their team win games. If you're a high school baseball player with your sights set on playing college baseball, one of the best ways to get recruited is to make sure your social media accounts reflect your talent and accomplishments. The best places to post are Twitter and Instagram and we've got guides on how to maximize both.

Post highlights of your best games, link to articles about your achievements, and use hashtags so that potential recruiters can easily find you online. By making yourself visible and accessible online, you're increasing your chances of getting recruited to play college baseball. So get out there and start posting!

3. Be careful what you like and share.

I was recently at a baseball game with my son and a business associate. As we were leaving, my business associate started sharing a bunch of baseball memes on his social media.

They were all harmless and funny, but I couldn't help but wonder if he was projecting the wrong image to his followers. After all, if you're trying to build a professional brand, do you want people to see you liking and sharing memes?

It's not that big of a deal, but it's something to keep in mind. So, if you're ever unsure about whether or not something is appropriate to like or share on social media, err on the side of caution and don't do it. Better safe than sorry.


In today's world, social media is a big part of our lives. It's a great way to stay in touch with friends and family, but it's also a great way to connect with people who have similar interests. With that said, it's important to remember that everything you post online is public information. That means that potential recruiters, college coaches, and other important people in your life can see everything you post. So, how can you keep your social media professional? By following the tips above!
