Though they operate more than 200 locations in upwards of 30 states, the team behind U.S. Baseball Academy aims to make each young athlete's experience a personal one. Their four- or six-week camps are taught by local instructors who are current or former coaches at the high school or college level, and typically offer a 6:1 or better player-to-teacher ratio for intense, professional-style training. The Academy's proven itinerary of hitting, pitching, fielding, and baserunning drills was developed by an advisory board of college coaches and Major League players, including Cy Young Award–winner and ace pitcher Brandon Webb.
For Central Texas Fishing Guides’ Allen Morehouse and Tim Harrell the outdoors are more than just a hobby—they're a way of life. Morehouse was a professional bull rider until 2001, when the birth of his first son prompted him to choose a slightly tamer career path. He began guiding hunting, fly-fishing, and lake-fishing trips, sharing his extensive knowledge and passion with other nature enthusiasts. Harrell, on the other hand, has been fishing since he's been walking. Having grown up casting lures with his dad on Cedar Creek Lake, he extended his passion through his life, founding the Baylor Bass Club at Baylor University—one of the first programs in the country to join the collegiate Bassmasters circuit—and currently targeting white bass and crappie.
