Why attend Spring Training?
Get ready for the start of your season!
If you didn’t have a chance to play indoor baseball over the winter or go to the batting cages, you’ll likely be a little rusty heading into your first official game or practice. Spring training gives you an opportunity to warm up your arm and take a few swings so you’re ready to go when the season starts.
Come as a Team!
In the past, we’ve had several coaches sign up their teams for baseball spring training as part of their season-long program. It’s a fantastic way to not only practice team concepts – including cut-off plays, pitcher fielding practice, and situational hitting – but also to give players a chance to bond throughout the weekend.
