The Tour's unparalleled efficiency allowed for a maximum number of visits to top academic colleges in a condensed time frame, providing invaluable interaction with and exposure to college coaches, while managing to sprinkle in some MLB games as icing along the way." - Jeremy Zoll, Farm Director, Minnesota Twins

"The DCAT college tour was a great opportunity for me to see so many top institutions in such a short period of time. It enabled me to get a feel for exactly what I was looking for in a college and a baseball program. The workouts were also a great opportunity to showcase my skills in a small setting in front of many of the schools that we visited. The kids were all nice and we all have stayed connected since the tour. Overall it is an outstanding opportunity that should not be missed and is not something I could have accomplished on my own."

"The DCAT college bus tour was an exceptional opportunity for my son to get exposure to a wide variety of select colleges with a group of similarly-minded high school athletes. He came back from the tour with a much elevated knowledge of the college selection process and a greater enthusiasm for initiating the search himself. This bus tour was a critical step in my son's finding the right college for academics and for baseball."
