The College World Series is done, and so is all of college baseball for another season. Fret not, though, college players are still out there playing. They are honing their craft, getting experience playing with wooden bats, showcasing their skills for scouts, and in general getting in more work in various summer leagues across the country.

As everyone is now out of school and summer vacations loom, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re going to be either vacationing or living near where a UNC player is going to spending the rest of the summer before UNC classes begin again on August 21st. As you’ll see, some have been able to settle into a groove while others-will take what they are learning to try and be better for the Tar Heels before the next baseball season starts up.

With that said, let’s take a look at how various members of the Diamond Heels are doing as they live out the summer baseball experience.
