Fall baseball season is almost upon us and that means baseball tryouts are underway for players across the county. Tryouts are always a little daunting for most players. They haven't played since spring, they're going to be under the microscope, and there's pressure to make a certain team or look good in front of peers and coaches.
Don't fear baseball tryouts, look at them as the beginning of a new season! A chance to get back out there, knock the rust off and take your first step toward an awesome year of baseball.
All Star Baseball offers private one-on-one lessons in all areas of the game of baseball: hitting, pitching, fielding and catching. Our professional staff of instructors includes Maleke Fowler, Pete Snyder, Doug Banks, Casey Clary and Ron Rhoads. Whatever your training needs may be, we have an experienced instructor available for you.
Cost of lessons are $40 for non-members and $36 for members. Call us today to schedule your next lesson.
