Baseball sluggers live by a simple rule: "Outside and low, let it go/Inside and over the plate, hit it to where puddles go when they evaporate." It's outta here with this Groupon.

Camps are held at Fairleigh Dickinson University's Naimoli Family Baseball Complex in Teaneck. All campers receive a JCM Baseball Academy T-shirt, but must supply their own baseball attire and equipment. During the camp, a staff of Division I–level college baseball coaches and players help campers develop specific skills as they participate in drills, scrimmages, and one-on-one instruction. Each activity emphasizes mechanics in a new and interesting way, and the camp itself allows for plenty of practice time at each position on the field.
JCM Baseball Academy
JCM Baseball Academy fosters the game's future stars under the guidance of owner Justin McKay—an assistant coach at Fairleigh Dickinson University who, in 2012, played a major role in leading the team to its best record since 1994. McKay has recruited a staff of fellow Division I–level coaches and players that, together, run numerous programs and camps throughout the year. The JCM's junior- and high-school camps, for instance, focus on the skills and mechanics required to play each position on the field, and also emphasize the importance of remembering to enjoy the game. The camps unfold at FDU's Naimoli Family Baseball Complex, which features state-of-the-art turf to prevent injuries and rival players from planting poison ivy around second base.
