Swing Away Baseball Training Center's head coach, Taylor George, knows what it takes to get drafted into the big leagues. After all, he was drafted himself—twice. The Tampa Bay Rays selected George right out of high school, but he opted instead to play college ball at Cypress College, where he excelled enough to get picked up by the New York Mets after his sophomore season.

He helps his students improve their mechanics for hitting and pitching, and he also works with them to develop the strategic thinking it takes to run the base paths or trap a cat in a game of pickle. Athletes as young as 4 can take cuts inside the facility's batting cages or work on their velocity inside one of two pitching tunnels.
The Farmers Insurance Open is held at the Torrey Pines Golf Course each year in February. The tournament allows ordinary players to team up with PGA pros to play golf at Torrey Pines, which has been called a highly challenging course. The golf tournament supports numerous charities with the money earned from ticket sales and proceeds from players. They were able to generate almost $3 million dollars in 2014, which was given to charitable organizations. Volunteers are welcome to apply and the Farmers Insurance Open utilizes the time and skills of hundreds of volunteers each year to make the tournament a huge success. Ticket prices are listed on the website but do go up the closer it gets to the time of the tournament. The Farmers Open is grateful for all the partner businesses who donate their goods and services to make the event successful. These include area restaurants and other businesses. Companies are encouraged to utilize the Open for advertising and branding opportunities.
