Baseball is one of the biggest sports in America. A total of 22 Dutchmen have played in the highest league (MLB). Of course, you don’t achieve this just like that, and if you live in the Netherlands, your chances will be even smaller.
Are you the next Xander Bogaerts?
365 Exchange helps the best players from the Netherlands to go to America to play sports and study at a highly regarded private high school. If you do well on the field and in class, you have a chance of being recruited by a College or University. Besides studying, which is fully paid for (a school year at a Division 1 college can easily cost $40,000 per year!) you train/play like a professional. There are even matches where 40,000 fans attend.
After college, you also have a chance to be chosen by an MLB team. Every year there is a “Draft” in which teams take turns choosing a player from a college or university. About 20% of the athletes are chosen.
We at 365 Exchange are in close contact with the schools to see where your perfect match is. We assess you both athletically and academically.
