Herb Baseball Academy’s mission is to inspire a love and understanding of baseball in a new generation of players. To teach that baseball is played at its highest level by mastering its fundamentals. To give our students a culture of achievement, discipline, and respect on the baseball diamond and in the family. To give the parents and families of players an opportunity to understand and share the baseball experience. We will do so by offering year round professional instruction to players and provide ongoing support to coaches and parents. Players will receive an individual skill evaluation and be given the instruction necessary to maximize their potential. You’re not just signing up for a camp; you’re joining a baseball family.

The Diamond grand opening is set for Aug 9th and 10th. This will be free to the public to tour the facility all weekend. Registration for membership is now open to the public. Please click the Join tab above and follow the instructions.

Hitting, Pitching, and Fielding Instructional Leagues have been temporarily suspended so we can focus on completion of the new training facility. Once the software company has completed designing our site (Aug 9th) we will have a full schedule of lessons, leagues, camps, and group sessions to sign up for year round!

We are excited to announce we are finalizing plans to open The Diamond. The Diamond will be the Mid-Ohio Valley's premier facility to develop the next generation of college and professional baseball and softball players. It will be a state of the art 18k sq ft facility housing a 7k sq ft field turf, a MLB styled bullpen with real clay mounds, a parent's lounge and spectator area, a baseball museum, and The Launching Pad; 10 full time hitting stations including 3 member's automated pitching machines. The facility will also house The Dugout; a MLB designed dugout for member players to prepare for their training, store their personal equipment, and relax. The Diamond will be the year round training center for the Academy's Silver Knights baseball and Scarlet Knights softball teams. The teams will take the field in 2015 consisting of 4 age groups; 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, and HS. Starting this fall we will host indoor t-ball for ages 5-7 and live pitching competitions for ages 8 and up. All coaches involved in the various teams and leagues with be certified through the Dale C Herb Leaders Program to provide continuity of their development as they advance through the age groups.

The MOV once had a deep tradition of developing college and professional level talent and this training facility is designed to bring that back. A variety of memberships and rental packages will be available for all in the baseball and softball community. Area teams will have seasonal practice packages so fighting our winter and spring elements becomes a thing of the past. Players of all age groups and skill levels will have access to camps, conditioning, video analysis, and private/group instruction. Coaches and parents will have access to clinics, team instruction, and to observe or participate in their player's development.

We will welcome everyone with a free opening weekend for all to tour the facility. Details on family memberships, rental packages, and the grand opening coming soon. We will build it so you will come. Play Ball!
