Our story, what makes Pro Ball a unique experience and more
”Just wanted to thank you again for all the effort and energy you put into making the camp what it was. I had a wonderful time. It was an amazing experience. Between the instruction, the camaraderie and the ability to play baseball for nine hours a day for four days, I can’t tell you what I loved more. Awesome time. I don’t know how else to express my appreciation for what you and the other instructors did by dedicating their valuable off season time to teach old has-beens like me how to hit, catch and throw a baseball the RIGHT way. It was truly an honor to be around every one of you guys. So, thanks again.
Please pass the sentiment along to the entire group of coaches. Every one of the instructors were amazing. I can see why they’re at the level they’re at. Truly the best at what they do. Can’t wait till next year.D. Hellman, CA
”It’s because of this camp that I am playing some of the best baseball I’ve ever played in my life. The professional coaches were outstanding.
The other ballplayers that come from all around, I’ve made lasting friendships. I just wanted to say to you, John, that because of your Pro Ball camp,R. Williams, NJ
I am the baseball player that I am at my age. So, I thank you for everything that you’ve done.
”This camp was a life changing experience for me. Not only did the camp help me be a better player, the experience with the coaches was worth everything. I can’t wait for the next camp.T. Buhl, CA
”I attended Pro Ball for two years running and it was an amazing opportunity. Coming from Australia where baseball is not as often played as it is in America it's hard to get great coaching consistently. The coaching at Pro Ball was amazing and I had an awesome time.Jaime Cameron-Taylor, Australia
The experience I got at Pro Ball gave me not only great skills but also confidence. I am now attending prep college in Pennsylvania as a student athlete and looking ahead to college. I honestly believe Pro Ball was a key step in me being offered the chance to pursue my dream.
”I've been playing and coaching baseball for 62 years and still play. I thought I knew a lot about baseball until I first attended the Pro Ball Clinic. It is hands down the best baseball learning experience I have ever had.Joe Shaffer, CO
”Pro Ball clinic is the best baseball experience one can have, except for actually being a major leaguer. All the coaches are so generous with their time and wealth of knowledge. And it’s such a great learning experience to really learn how to THINK baseball, to listen to the various theories, ideas, nuances, and tips on pitching, throwing, hitting, bunting, catching, infield, and outfield. And after instructing all day in the organized sessions, the coaches would stay and give us more repetitions until we’d have to stop to let the grounds crew clean get to work on the fields (like when we were kids and would have to come in because it was too dark). It was great having the coaches share their experiences, and it was interesting how much they learned from each. No question was ever too stupid. And every coach was very patient in his instructions, and each was able to come down to our individual levels, be it beginner to advanced, to explain the proper way to field, hit, throw, etc. They quickly recognized our different strengths, weaknesses, and idiosyncrasies and customize their instruction to suit our abilities, explaining a technique or concept in a number of different ways until we got it. After some basic instruction, we had the chance for a lot of repetitions to try to solidify the skill. The days are well planned with a variety of fundamentals covered; and the sessions are tightly organized so there isn’t a lot of wasted time standing around. The Pirates facility is perfect for the camp, allowing us to eat, sleep, and play baseball. And it was great that all the coaches and campers shared the love of the game, and we were coached on “the right way” to play.K. Rupert, CA
”I’m so grateful for the camp and friends I made there! It was one of the best times I’ve had to date. Hope to see you guys sometime in the future!D. LuJan, MO
”Thank you the most remarkable experience of a life time. Wishing you all a safe, happy and healthy New Year and looking forward to next years camp.D. Dolezal, WA
”I want to say thanks again for such a great time this past 4 days. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. I thought everything was run great.P. Anderson, MA
