Personalized Training by Position

Pitchers receive over 60% of the available college baseball scholarship money. Let Baseball Factory’s coaches help you refine your pitching mechanics and increase your velocity so that you gain the attention of recruiters and scouts. Learn proper arm maintenance, how to throw sharp breaking balls and how to carry out pick-offs.

Catchers are expected to be leaders on the field. Through a series of specialized drills, players will master receiving and throwing techniques, blocking skills, mechanics for throwing out base-stealers and a game plan for calling pitches. There’s more to being a successful catcher than just catching and throwing. Learn the techniques that can help you succeed and propel you towards college baseball and beyond.
