This is a 6 week long camp on Monday nights. Area high school coaches & baseball pros will run drills & scrimmages.
This academy gives the players opportunities to work with knowledgeable coaches. They will not only break down the HOW to do a specific skill, but the WHY. Many young players look for short cuts - once they understand the WHY, it makes the game easier. We want to eliminate any of the bad habits before they start.

Spring Baseball 2016 Updates
**Lake Monsters and Yard Goats getting along.
Astros 9u & 7u- 3/6/16
**The 9U Astros are off to a great start this season with a 2-0-1 record led by the pitching of Samuel DuRard, Brady McGarr and Will Cobb. They have been able to keep the batters off balance and give the bats of Cayde King, Diego Vasquez and Brayden Hurst a chance to add runs to win the game. Bryce Efird has done a remarkable job this season making the move to 1st Base and has come up with 5 Put outs and several assists, including a diving grab today. Ryan Cook, Parker Burdine, Matthew Brown and Andrew Morris have provided a strong outfield support as well as a game ball grabbed today by Ryan for a key hit and scoring a run from 1st, sealing the win for the Astros. Go stros!!
**The 7U Astros logged their first win of the season today against the Marlins, after two tough losses to the league leaders. The Astros were led by the strong bats of Eric Heineman, hitting a Homerun to the fence today, Caden Hale, Cullen McGarr and Ryan Karlik. These four boys combined for 15 hits today. The defense has been led by the strong play of Jake Winsky and brother Justin Winsky, providing a strong up the middle combination. Adam Carter is taking a liking to handling the behind the plate duties, and broke out today offensively with 3 hits. Tristan Martinez, Cannon Powell, Hudson Cobb and Charlie Cook have been providing support in many areas, ensuring a well rounded team effort. The Stros have put up some good runs this season and will be rolling into the next games with momentum. Go Stros!
