Band Training for Baseball Package - Resistance Band Training

Not sure how much longer this lockdown will last so I wanted to give you all my recommendation on how to keep your kid training while social distancing...I am kicking it old school and recommending the product I used before we had a gym. This is my first training program from back in the Barn/outside days. It’ll get the job done for sure.

We are asking all of our players to adhere strictly to the Governors direction. We know it is a huge inconvienance but we must all do our part for now. We will get back at it the moment we are able.

In accordance with the direction of Governor Wolf and the health care experts in Pa we are closing for two weeks beginning tonight at midnight. While it saddens us to not be able to aid in your training over the next few weeks, we know this is in your best interest and that of everyone you come in contact with. Please be safe and be well and we will see you all soon! Thank you!

Congrats go out to Travis Luensmann! What an incredible summer. SC commitment, East Coast Pro, Area Code Games, dominated WWBA in Jupiter...he started with us at 14, stuck with his training, trusted the plan and will very likely be a high draft pick in June 2020. “Little” bro Jack has some big shoes to fill!!!!

More flags going up! Where will you play? Will your facility/instructors/travel team help you get there? Do they talk to coaches on your behalf? Do they build their networks to provide you exposure? Do they put you in events tnat get you quality looks? What’s the real motivation behind your facility/instructors/travel teams? Our motivation is clear...we want to help you achieve your goals level after level. That’s it. You don’t need a fancy facility or to travel outside of Central Pa, it’s all right here. The proof is our athletes.

Love this take!

Tennessee Baseball coach Tony Vitello did not hold back last week when he was asked about the proposal to allow college baseball and softball programs the option to pay a third assistant coach. The NCAA voted against it on Friday. Vitello also wants to see a change in the number of scholarships each program has. It used to be 25. Now, it's 11.7.

12th in the nation with a 1.181 ERA!?!?!?...I mean that is pretty good if you are into... you know, being a dominant closer...as a sophomore...in the Big Ten.

[02/20/19]   All activities are CANCELLED for today due to road conditions.

[02/15/19]   March 23rd will mark 20 years since I played professionally. Spring training was a blast but nothing excites me like today does. Opening day of college baseball! Good luck and good health to all of our players getting things started today and over the coming weeks. I'll see you all soon!

[01/19/19]   THERE WILL BO NO ACTIVITIES AT DST TOMORROW!

Coaches and Players....there is really only one thing that truly sets me off with my players and that is when hitters take first pitch fastballs...and I guess that also includes...coaches who advocate taking the first pitch. An aggressive hitter is a dangerous hitter. Swing the bat! Swing the bat! Swing the bat!

Cory Aldridge

“You are wasting your time, if you aren’t trying to hit it over everything”-Cory J Aldridge

I have been talking to my hitters lately about how I visualized hitting a homerun every at bat so as not to get cheated. Cory was one of my teammates with the Braves. Had a MUCH longer career than me :) He makes my point way better than me too

“WANT THE EXPLOSION”
Shout to @patricktclifford27 for showing me a new phone feature.... One of the last solid swings of my career. Came back to the states and got the nick name (one of many) “Pops” for 2 reasons.. #1 I’m old and #2 watch the vids. Don’t waste your time if you not trying to hit it over everything...... 800 feet easy

Former U.S. Little League champion Red Land to leave organization for Cal Ripken

Change is Hard...but when the momentum of change is against you...do you go the way of the dinosaur or do you adapt and keep up?

Loved competing against these guys as the head coach at State High. The number 1 thing all baseball powerhouses across the country have in common is the commitment to player development at the youth level. They call the Mid Penn Commonwealth Division of PIAA the 'Major Leagues" because of how difficult it is to win given the level of talent. The last 5 Commonwealth Division Champions have been Red Land (2018), Red Land (2017), Mifflin County (2016), Red Land (2015) and State High (2014). Year to year the top baseball programs in the Commonwealth Division are Red Land, Cedar Cliff, Cumberland Valley, Mifflin County and State High. Of all the school I just mentioned (both lists), all of the youth programs feeding the high school have switched over to Ripken in the last 3 years but one.

Key Take aways from the article....
1. Red Land made the decision because it was in the best interest of the kids.
2. With Cal Ripken, their league will spend half of what they spent to support Little League
