Hitting and Fielding Classes: Run by Coach Mike Wallerich and staff
Each class will consist of teaching the athletes the proper mechanics of the swing along with fielding a baseball. As we progress through the winter, your sons will learn the “musts” of the swing. Every great player has their own little details to what helped them be successful. However, all great players have these musts in common because they are backed by the science of the swing.
Along with mechanics, we will spend more time on approach and what you should be swinging at. As players get older, pitchers get better and with baseball being the only game where you don’t control the ball on offense, to be successful you have to have a solid approach before you step into the batter’s box.
Each class is geared towards teaching the players at the level they are at. Each athlete might have a different skill set and we will look to attack each player’s strengths and weakness to create a better baseball position player
