"As an athlete you want results. The system and structure that they (the IMG Academy baseball program) have in place makes this place great. Every day I am going to the max, pushing my body. This is the only place where I can do that every day and not get tired of it."
Once upon a time, spring training was the time and place for major leaguers to get in shape for the upcoming season. However, players in today’s game are bigger, stronger, faster and more explosive. This change has made it essential for professional players to train year-round to be fully prepared once spring training arrives. The Athletic & Personal Development program’s MLB Training program gives you a chance to train at a facility fully dedicated to your development with experts available to help you on and off the field.
"All of these guys are very talented, and our purpose isn't to teach them to hit, field and throw, our goal is to provide each player with the venue and opportunity to absolutely maximize their individual physical and mental abilities, thus improving the likelihood of a successful Major League career."
