While many college students are off at the beach or taking trips all over the country and the world, baseball players are honing their skills.
Many college baseball players from around the country are playing in summer leagues and working on their games.
There are 23 Mississippi State Bulldogs who are working with teams on the east coast, midwest and west coast this summer to try and get better for the 2015 season that will start in February.
This summer could be big for several Bulldogs who either didn't get much playing time this past season or need some confidence going into fall ball. It's also about experiencing new things. 
"It's huge," Cohen said of summer baseball. "It's not just a baseball experience. It's getting out of your comfort zone, it's meeting kids from all over the country and it's playing for a new set of coaches. All those kids and all their experiences, they come back and make our program better."
