$200-300 a month on paint to get you started, it may be more, plus tourney entries and tourney paint.

Money for tournament entries, paint (expect at least a case per tournament), and gas.

A team. Hit up your local field and see if they have a tournament coming up. Play some rec ball and ask around.

You can try to show up early for the tournament and see if a team needs someone -- there's usually someone who can't make the tourney and their spot needs to be filled. However, the last couple years I've seen less of that happening. I'm guessing it's several reasons: more people on team rosters; poor economy (less likely they'll bail since they might not commit in the first place if they can't afford it); who knows.

Best bet is to ask around. Ask the refs, too. They usually know way more than most people think.

Money!!! I suggest not getting into it until you have a solid job. Next, a team so you can either grab a couple fields to start one of play more at a local field and show your stuff around to the teams out there.

To become a good player you need skill, dedication, and a team.

To become a d3-pro player you need money. Only difference

Start with a job. Grab some gear and friends then hit up the local field. After some practices ask the field about tournaments. Save up and play.

You need a team, gear, time, transportation, and of course $$$$. Like most others said check out the local field and try to jump on lines to get a feel of playing with others, ask teams whats up or someones bound to notice you if you play enough

Being young doesn't hurt. It's a real disadvantage for me being old (49).
