Academy Program:  This program has been a staple for our Michigan Red Sox program.  It is our annual program get together at Adrian College where we work together as a unit to prepare for the upcoming season.  Each year we kick off our season by coming together as a program for high school aged players.  Players will meet at Adrian College on Friday evening.  We will have an orientation, get settled, and then go out under the lights for a two hour workout at Adrian College.  We will be on the field all day on Saturday and Sunday going through various drills and skills as a program and to further develop our players.  The program will be complete at 3pm on Sunday.  This will include all meals and lodging.   This is a mandatory program.  The only acceptable excuse for missing this event is if your high school team is still in the high school tournament.  The high school tournament ends when your team is knocked out and I expect attendance from that point on.

College Workout Days

Every Tuesday we get together for a full day workout.  These are our workout days or practice days.  Players and coaches will arrive at a college facility at 10am and go through a three hour workout.  We will be working with other teams at this event.  We will break for lunch and then regroup for a series of 5 inning games with umpires.  These days usually last from 10am – 6pm.

Year Round Training

We are big believers in multi sport players.  We want athletes and can develop their baseball skills.  However, we want dedicated baseball players whose primary goal is to play baseball at the next level.  We expect athletes who play football, basketball, or other activities to commit to “getting their work in” most of the year.  This work is in the form of some training whether baseball skill wise or athletic improvement.  We will begin off season TEAM training Sunday, January 13, 2019 at the Michigan Red Sox Training Center.  We expect all team members at these practices for us to monitor your development and set goals and expectations for the season.

We don’t expect the players to play year round or even work out as a team year round but we do expect players to continually develop their game through technique, speed, and strength all year round.  We have programs for players to follow and goals for them to achieve so at the conclusion of their high school season, they will be ready for premiere summer baseball.  We also expect players and parents to assist in communication all year long in order to see smooth results and success throughout the summer.  All players who are part of our program have access to year round training at the new Michigan Red Sox Training Center in Waterford, Michigan.
