  • Richmond Baseball Academy West
    By now, it’s no secret that Richmond Baseball Academy West has a knack for developing top baseball talent. More than 30 players who have been drafted by Major League teams have also either trained at facilities or played on one of the Academy’s traveling teams, including 2011 Cy Young winner Justin Verlander. And that’s in addition to hundreds of athletes who emerged from the program to play at the collegiate level. Co-owned by former Major League reliever Cla Meredith, the Academy shapes future masters of the diamond with coaches who bring genuine field experience as they have all played the game at either the professional or college level. Pupils learn how to run down ground balls and put together solid at bats inside the Academy’s year-round facility in Richmond. It features batting cages, pitching machines, radar guns, and more of the latest teaching devices to help streamline training sessions. Meanwhile, former softball standouts Synthia Reader and Sara Lassiter—a four-year player at Averett University—lead the softball program, which offers lessons for players of all ages and boasts its own competitive travel team. Richmond Baseball Academy also teaches youngsters aged 5–12 how to hit, field, and sniff out any sunflower seeds within the city limits in four-day baseball summer camps. It hosts more than 16 travel teams which accommodate ball players from age 8 to 17.

  • Grand Slam 2
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Grand Slam 2 facet_type_id: 5071c260-5f39-1032-b9b7-826b3b60931d html_text: |- It’s fitting that Grand Slam 2’s name suggests a sequel, as the baseball complex’s team of instructors consists of former collegiate coaches and athletes who continue their involvement in the sport even after hanging up their game-day cleats. In classes, camps, and clinics, these instructors impart their appreciation for baseball as they build their students’ hitting and fielding skills from the ground up. Though the facility’s batting cages play an important role in correcting swings, sessions may also include off-field weight training—this is especially true for pitching classes, which aim to bulk up throwing arms in preparation for more serious competition. At winter and summer hitting academies, bats crack against approaching baseballs like the whip of an exceptionally demanding coach. Players can put their newfound skills to the test in the Tidewater Bombers baseball program, a competitive, age-appropriate league that imparts the principles of teamwork through live-action games. To prepare for league games, check out Grand Slam 2's pro shop, which stocks bats, gloves, and terrifying masks for psyching out opposing pitchers.

    In 2011, the VCU Rams athletics program emerged under the national spotlight's brightest bulbs when the men's basketball team advanced to the NCAA Final Four as an 11-seed. But while their Cinderella story may have made VCU a household name and bedtime story for sports-loving children, it is hardly the only instance of Rams' athletic success. A perennial powerhouse on the tennis court, the men's program has raked in 16 conference championships and eight All-America selections while spending 17 straight years in the ITA top-25.
