Team Info:In 2018, we will be an already established 3rd year MABF baseball team.As of this writing our team record is 17-4 for the current MABF season. We are coming off a great season this year.As coaches, we work hard on teaching the players pitching mechanics, batting mechanics, fielding mechanics, bunting mechanics, lead-off mechanics, secondary lead mechanics, pick-offs, defensive strategies to hold runners on bases w/o having the need actually have a defensive player constantly cover the bases, run downs, bunt defenses and many other aspects of the game. And the occasional trick plays which the kids enjoy practicing. We don't do the same boring practice every week. We'll get out the radar gun to measure throwing velocity, ball speed of the tee, and running times which the kids enjoy. The kids all learn how to play all aspects of the game. All our kids know how to pitch and how to pick runners.We understand travel baseball is a long season commitment and we keep practices new and fresh for the kids each week. I think the kids favorite practices are when we split them into 6 v 6 and they all get to pitch against each other. I think these types of practices set us apart from other teams. We build the kids to work as a team.If you were one of our opponents this year then you saw first hand our skills are controlling the base runners.Our plans:Fall 2017: We plan on playing in the USSSA Fall Baseball League at Mt. Clemens Memorial. Historically, we put players in different positions in the Fall baseball season to take them out of their comfort zone since it's already been a long regular season. All of 2018: We will be playing in the MABF for the 3rd season in a row. We have a core group of kids that we've been working with for the last couple years. We will also be playing in 4-5 tournaments in 2018.We may become part of 5 Tool Baseball in 2018.We practice in the winter time like all other teams. Please call or e-mail me for a try-out or more details. We are looking for 2-3 players.
