Organization Overview

First of all I want to start by saying how proud I am of our players achievements over the years and how excited I am for every new season to come. The growth of our players along with our organization, has been reflected by multiple tournament championships, league championships and many college signings.

 

I want to extend my thanks to all coaches, player and parents in our organization. You are among the best youth baseball and softball have to offer. Your contributions to our growth as an organization is invaluable.

 

I love walking around the facility and seeing players at all age levels, excited to enter our facility and work/train to get better. It gives me chills and goose bumps as I just love watching all these players train and get better at the sport they love.

 

Admittedly I am biased, but I truly feel we have the best training facility in the area. We are working hard to make strides as we grow as an organization, so look to see more additions and improvements to the facility.

 

Thanks Rob Stevenson- Director/Owner of HITZ

Playing With Passion

Whenever a player goes out onto the field, he cannot always control whether he gets a hit, makes an error, or gives up a home run. A big part of baseball is failure! There are, however, many things each player can control, which play a big part in his ability to be successful and play at a high level!

When a player is on the field, it is very easy to see if it is his passion and if he truly loves the game. It is also just as easy to see if he doesn’t have that passion and is ready for the game to be over with!

How is it so easy to spot the guys with passion?

1. The guys that play with passion are sprinting EVERYWHERE they go on the field. They have a ton of energy and play hard all of the time. They don’t jog out ground balls or fly balls, pout after an error or throw their helmet after a strikeout. It doesn’t mean these guys are happy with falling short, it just means these guys truly love the game and play it the right way!

2. They look like they’re having fun! The higher levels in baseball you go, the more “job-like” it becomes. However, how many times have you gone to a professional game and seen players sitting by themselves pouting? I never have! Whether it’s before the game, during, or after, those guys absolutely love every second of being a baseball player! They can often be seen laughing and playfully chiding each other. That said, it is crucial, of course, to understand the difference between having fun and goofing off.

3. He’s a good teammate. Going along the lines with #2, a player that has passion for the game rubs off on all of his teammates. He is not just focused on himself, but really enjoys watching other people be successful. His attitude is infectious and he is able to inspire others to follow his example. If you come to the field with the same attitude day in and day out, people usually like to be around you!

   Every time you walk into a practice or a game, remember that you are getting an opportunity to play a GAME that you love! If you have that approach every single day, baseball will never become a job for you!

 

Overview

Training Complex- Our facility located in Chesterfield is unlike anywhere else any team trains, our state of the art facility allows us to train and practice for the upcoming season in a game like environment with our full indoor infield. One Thing will always be true. Players that practice in between practices and games will always have a step up on their competition.
 
One huge benefit of playing with HITZ Baseball is that we train out of our own facility and all our players will have discounted additional access outside their team training, such as batting cage rental, private lessons, speed and agility, etc.
 
Continuity of Instruction from Coaches and Trainers-This is one of the most important parts of a program, our Hitting instruction will be consistent message to all the players. One instructor doesn’t teach one type of hitting while the other teaches another. The same goes for our pitching instructors. This allows our athletes not to have to relearn or start over again as they progress up in age. When or If you sign up for hitting or pitching instruction, you will be with that instructor for the duration of your lessons. You won’t be passes onto one or two different instructors. Our goal is to you the tool to not only be successful at the level that you’re at, but at the next level that you aspire to get to!
