Bullpen Baseball & Sports Academy

Address: 712 Ginesi Drive, Morganville
Details: Players are coached by a staff of professional instructors, current college players and high school players. The academy believes younger players need professional coaches to help them work on proper technique. The college and high school players, who are closer to the camper’s age, serve as motivational role models. Morning camp hours break kids into groups for games. Campers also work 1-on-1 with instructors on specific areas they want to excel at such as hitting, catching, pitching, infield or outfield play. After lunch, campers play baseball games, along with other sports like football, basketball and soccer.
