Going Pro Baseball Academy
It takes extreme levels of athletic refinement to make it to the pros in any sport. But whereas some football players can find success by focusing their energies entirely on blocking, and basketball players on sneaking under benches to tie opponents' shoes together, most baseball players must master at least two discrete skill sets to make it to the top. These facets of the game—hitting and fielding—are each incredibly difficult in their own right.
JD Closser knows something about hitting and fielding, as eight different big-league organizations can attest. Drafted by Arizona in 1998, he would go on to play three seasons in the majors with Colorado as well as playing in the Milwaukee and Los Angeles systems, among others, over a 15-year career. Though a catcher in his heyday, JD teaches all positions at Going Pro Baseball Academy. A range of programs can teach pitchers to develop command, third baseman to develop an accurate throw to first, and right fielders to develop the attention span to watch a chewed up sunflower seed reach flower-bearing maturity. Going Pro houses the latest training equipment, such as two full-length retractable cages, three pitching mounds, and full Astro Turf floor.
