2023 Winter + Spring + Summer: 6-Month Program

Hornets Baseball will offer a complete baseball experience from February through early August 2023.

 

The focus for this 16u squad will be a balance of college exposure, games, and tournaments. The team participates in the same high-profile tournaments and events as the expensive academy teams but we will not overpay for over promised showcases that will not actually enhance our players' college opportunities.  The team will be limited to 12 to 13 players to ensure a good amount of playing time and instruction for every player. Our pitchers will also play and hit. Being a P.O. is not as much fun. Directed by expert, paid coaches (see Bios) Hornets Baseball has a longer program than most teams.

 

All fees collected are invested directly into player experience and development. This program is 100% focused on maximizing what players get. This is a not-for-profit entity so the organization is fortunate to make decisions based on what's best for the players not the bottom line.
