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.
