Fall Baseball Train & Play 2017

League Director:    Scott Bjerke    248 946 2358

Designed for boys from beginner to intermediate, this bi-weekly (Wednesday & Saturday) program is played indoors late September and October.

The weekly Wednesday training sessions will put the boys through the paces of game play. All players will be put into both offensive and defensive positions equally. The drills we will use will improve the players’ skill and confidence on both sides of the ball – throwing, batting, pitching, base running, fielding and sliding. Baseball IQ will be discussed throughout all sessions.

Saturday's two-hour session will be full on games featuring our home run fencing system with coaches on the field and behind home plate. The boys will take their weekly skill training into a fun game situation without the pressure of winning, just improvement. Intra-squad scrimmages and games against invited teams.

This month long fun baseball program will improve all those kids that participate. Participation includes two game t-shirts and an Oakland Yard Baseball ball cap.
