Western Connecticut Baseball Academy trains any level of ball player, from bench warmer to bench destroyer, adults and children, providing anything from an introduction to the game to advanced nuances of the stitched sphere. Instructors with college and professional playing and coaching under their belts, or in their pockets (whichever is more convenient), can convert a glove fumbling for grounders into a double-play-making giant leather hand of success. A bat that yearns for the delicious taste of the screaming fastball suddenly halted, quieted, and sent hurtling back in the opposite direction, can learn to feast upon its leather-clad prey, rather than retiring inning after inning hungry, wanting. Pitches that fail to enter the zone without getting picked off by any goon with a stick can be groomed to gain speed, confidence, and the ability to whisper little facts about historical architecture as they whiz by confused batters’ faces.
