I have been playing for a little over two years. I had been saving money to buy a new marker I told my mom that I was getting one and needed to borrow her laptop because mine was dead. Her response was why are you spending more money it is not going to get you any were in life if I were you I would save the money and use it to buy something useful that will get you some wear. I started thinking and many she is right I like doing it but it's expensive and I don't plan on playing it competitively. Also it won't get me into collage. Many I should stop and just sell my gear and putt 100% of my focus into baseball. What should I do

Ps she wasn't mean about it

What are you talking about baseball can get you into a great college.

 

And paintball isn't meant as a money make or anything, play it for fun or quit.

Paintball is a hobby. You do it for fun because its fun. 

 

I was a 3 sport  athlete in highschool worked and still had time for paintball. 

 

Get a job save your gear and just live your life the way you want to live it.

I say do what makes you happy. I am going to be "that guy" and say you won't make it in baseball but go ahead and prove me wrong. Chances are it is really slim you will make it pro and although Baseball helps keep you fit so does paintball (but not nearly as much). 

 

Sell your marker and add a little more towards a used marker and just play so everyone wins.

Now I have heard what you think you should possibly do and it is "I should focus on Baseball" and "I should focus on Basketball" ; I hate to break it to you but any athlete that hasn't thought of practicing only one sport or isn't exceptionally talented will not be scouted for college. Unless you are 10 or 11 and starting your athletic career I don't see a point to quitting. If you genuinely enjoy what you are doing then do it. Don't think about "maybe this sport can get me a scholarship to a prestigious college" because, the real athletes play for the love of the sport. If you aren't exceptionally talented at your sport whether it be basketball baseball or paintball it won't get you anywhere. Honestly if you enjoy paintball go for it. You should think about what you want to do now because; no matter what you choose it won't change your future if you are not an exceptionally gifted athlete.


80% of teens listen to Hip-Hop, if you're part of the 20% that hates that shit , put this in your sig!Go ahead and throw your ions. I'll just catch them and throw em' back, except harder You may live in a 500,000 dollar house but i live in a 2 dollar box under a 6,000,000 dollar bridgeSave a rock,throw a tippmann its ok you won't be able to hurt it.put this on ur sig if u feel a need to call paintcheck........even if all you can see is orange!

Hurt durr. I dont think you read all of his post. And the college I want to go to accepts paintball scholarships. May not be as much off as a baseball scholarship but it's something.

Chelsea Football Club - St.Louis Rams - Tampa Bay Rays - Florida Panthers - Miami Heat

Paintball scholarships lmfao. Its a club sport at best in the NCPA good luck. 

 

When will you guys accept real life. Paintball wont pay your bills or get you into school, and most likely neither will baseball unless you are super talented. You will not reach that point without first dedicating your entire life to schoolwork and baseball. Im talking you study and play baseball. The only to ever make any money off of playing baseball is to be scouted out of high school and go into the minors and then hope that you can somehow prove to coaching staff that you are good enough for major league assignment then continue performing at a level high enough to earn yourself a contract. Even then you need to stay healthy and perform. 

 

Its a pipe dream at best unless you are the next Bryce Harper.

 

Focus on school and enjoying your life while you are still young enough and have few enough responsibilities to do it.

Yeah sports amd hobbies should be done because you enjoy them, not because you will make any gains to your life outside them.

Also OP was just saying that he could get a college scholarship from baseball, not that he would try to make a career of it from what I understood.

Well, it may not get you into college but you can get a partial scholarship from it.
