DS told us last night he wanted to try out for an elite baseball team, based in a city 2 hours away. We've never done a traveling league (other than 15-20 mins away) and this team travels all over the midwest during the summer for tournaments (St. Louis, etc) and DH and I have lots of questions. We will be calling the coach tonight to get answers to all our questions, but for those of you that have BTDT, what was your experience like? It is *a lot* of money, but I'm more worried about the time commitment (mainly for me, since DH will hopefully be starting Grad School in the Spring). Am I going to be spending every weekend in a hotel from May through August? We are leaning towards letting him do it (at least for one summer) if he makes the team. I think it would be a great experience and maybe lead to being seen by colleges, if he keeps it up after this year. I know if he doesn't make the team, none of the details will matter, but I don't want to have him make it and then be like "ok, what do we do now?" KWIM?
