Pinkman Academy

Pinkman Academy


My son did a Hittrax camp and has been seeing Jeff for private hitting lessons. Jeff helped him find the right bat and has improved his swing. The trajectory of where he hits the balls was a big problem for him. My son has seen different trainers over the past several years and my son says that Pinkman Academy has really helped him the most.

We will instill in our students, that which we require of our selves; a never ending thirst to learn. We will present through our instruction athletic values that honor the game. The game should be fun. Repeated failure is not fun. The inability to master fundamental skill is a primary reason that children leave the game. We will provide excellent athletic instruction for all students to succeed, regardless of their current skill level. We target individual needs. We will assess and provide solutions for complete physical, mental and emotional development. We will continue to grow by employing professional teachers who are devoted to our student's future.

So proud of @dannykeane07 for busting his butt for the past three years. Danny hit new pr’s on the mound (93) and a 3.5oz pulldown (104😳)!!....Not to mention the fact he also hit the ball 447ft 🤨💪 On the @hittraxofficial earlier in the month. ......Danny walked in the door 3 years ago throwing 75 mph and batted .000 for his JV team at Woodgrove his Freshman year. He is a self made athlete. There has been nothing special to his workouts other than working on his farm and desire to get better everyday. The #Pinkmanfamily is proud of the Jr Instructor Danny has become over the past 2 years helping to teach Rookie Ball and Summer Camps at the Pinkman Academy.

Pitcher Fielding Practice using the Vector balls. These balls blink a different color every time creating an unpredictable environment in practice. Players have to react different to each color that appears. This drill works on vision, decision making, and foot work all in one!

Our Summer Hitting and Pitching camps are more than just swinging and throwing. Vision training is an integral part of sports. You can’t hit what you can’t see. Pitchers also benefit greatly from developing their sports vision too!!

It’s good to have friends in the big leagues! 😁😉👍
