I'm 21 years old and I've never really worked out before. I'm trying to take on 47 pounds to make me 205. I figured that is a good lean size at 6 foot. I'm currently eating everything in site and keeping a track of my calories daily. I'm averaging 3480 a day, I haven't kept track of carbs or protein. I know it is like 2500 calories for one pound of fat..or something like that. Anyways, I just joined a gym yesterday and I'm serious about getting big. I don't wanna do any PHs or Roids, so am I on the right track? I have Mass Peak, but no Creatine.
Train hard, be proud. Walk with your head up, show no fear.
Hop on a proven plan. I know when I first started I would just walk around the gym and jerk off to a bunch of random pointless exercises. Let somebody take all the guess work out for you in the beginning.
Don't train chest every ****ing day...that won't help you grow. Do a body part everyday, or something like that.
Ask questions to people you see at the gym (without being a nuisance)
Eat good clean food, and just have fun. At your age growth is gonna happen big time, but remember Rome wasn't built in a day, set goals whether they be monthly, or bi monthly and always work towards them!!!

You don't have to lift heavy to see good results either. I never bench more then 135 for example and I look like I can bench a lot more. Switch from lifting heavy to lifts with many reps (still a good amount of weight though.)
Also form is the most important. Google proper form for workouts that you do so you don't have any injuries and work more muscle.
Have good range of movement as well. You will be working the whole muscle this way.
Good luck in your fitness journey! Also take a before picture, so this summer when you look at it you'll see how far you've gotten.
Just have to say the baseball player comment made me laugh haha. It is definitely the any body type sport.
Like others have said find a solid program like Wendlers 531 and follow it for a little while. Pictures are a great idea. Personally for diet I like Carb Back Loading.
Just train heavy and often, and stay with that high calorie diet...for a long time. 50 lbs naturally will take several years. Ive seen it happen though with some powerlfting buddies of mine. One kid started at 155 and 1 year later he was 205 no kidding, craziest thing Ive ever seen...but he trained his butt off and ate everything in site for a whole year.
