from personal experience...i played softball forever and through highschool i played year round...i felt kind of burnt out from it (even though it was great) so i decided not to play in college. now i'm skiing a shitload and have become a much better skier and had a ton of fun while friends that played through college had fun but not nearly as much as they should have in college. if you play in college it definitely becomes your life. school, studying, baseball, traveling....thats what it will be. evolution freeride h3o filmsanonr.e.d.FIRE AINGE!!
