Our goal is to get players more proficient in the areas of hitting, pitching, and fielding, in order to make their High School, Little League, or Pony League teams. More specifically: we will work on pitching bio-mechanics to learn proper throwing techniques to improve consistency and velocity. Hitting we will work on tracking back from release point, loading the hands, tucking the back elbow, taking the back knee to the ball, pushing the front hip through the pitcher, throwing the hands through the ball, and keeping the weight inside the front foot. Fielding, we will work on but down and glove out, moving/momentum through the ball, and closing off the front side to make an accurate throw.
The Columbia City Reds offers inner city kids the opportunity to play baseball on a competitive level regardless of their ability to pay and to develop as a whole and beyond the game of baseball.
