“My son played in the 12U Wood Bat League, and I was blown away by the level of development for him and others in the league. You said that development was the priority during orientation and that is exactly what I saw. It was such a breath of fresh air to see coaches in both dugouts offering advice and words of encouragement to boys on both teams. The instruction from all coaches manifested itself in my son being a much better hitter and player in the short three weeks that he was there.”
