COMMENTS FROM LAST YEARS CAMP
Johnny F, 2011 attendee and British Baseball Federation Broncos MVP and Great British National Team player:
" I really enjoyed the mini-camp that Gerry ran last year, he helped me get out of some bad habits and made me really think about my hand and feet position when I was at bat and pitching."
It was good to see some fundamental and 'back to basic' coaching, the sessions helped improve Johnny's approach to the plate and gave him more confidence pitching. When he viewed his video, he was able to see his technique and exactly what he needed to do to refine it.
