Best Answer

College plays only about 35% of the number of games MLB plays, so endurance is one difference. The other major thing would be the pitching. The level of pitching is so much higher in MLB then in college. Think of how many players are sitting in the minor league system that were good in college. Why is that?? Most of it has to do with their ability to hit. Fielding is something you can teach and practice to make yourself really good. Hitting is something that is very difficult because every pitcher you face is different. If you do not learn to adapt to the pitcher then even if you are a great college player you will spend your professional career in the minor leagues
