Choose from Three Options

  • $95 for a three-day hitting clinic at 10 a.m. ($200 value)
  • $95 for a three-day pitching and catching clinic at noon ($200 value)
  • $95 for a three-day fielding clinic at 2 p.m. ($200 value)

Choose between two sessions: October 18–November 1 or November 15–29. Each session lasts 90 minutes and takes place on a Saturday.

Head instructor Taylor Bargiacchi leads players through swing analyses, breaking down their swings in order to improve them. The first two sessions focus on the upper and lower body, and the third recaps the overall swing and what players can expect as they move forward in youth baseball.

Coach Bargiacchi co-leads the pitching and catching clinic, covering the catchers’ portion. He instructs players how to block, receive, and throw, as well as how to call a game and work with pitchers. The pitchers’ portion is led by Coach Dan Galluccio, who teaches pitchers both basic and advanced aspects, including pitch grip, throwing mechanics, and the mental approach to be successful.

The fielding clinic is led by senior instructor Luis Colón and covers the fundamentals of the position, such as footwork and throwing mechanics, as well as more advanced situational fielding. Coach Colón teaches drills that players can practice at home.

ProPlayer Baseball Academy

ProPlayer Baseball Academy has a Hall of Fame dedicated to former standout students and instructors, many of whom have gone on to have big-league careers. It's a testament to the academy's clout, both as a year-round training facility and as a launching pad to the next level. Inside the 6,000-square-foot, fully turfed facility, coaches lead baseball and softball players aged 7–18 through private lessons, camps, and clinics. Four stationary batting cages let hitters tighten up their swings, and areas for long toss help players stretch their arms without having to cling to the spinning blades of a helicopter. But it's not just the game's budding stars who use these spaces: occasionally current big leaguers visit during the offseason to keep their skills sharp, too.
