Testimonials from 2016 camp at Blizzard Baseball Academy

Hey guys –

Thank you for organizing and communicating the Ron Wolforth pitching camp opportunity.  I’ve attended numerous ‘camps’ over the years as either a player, parent, or coach and this was by far the best I’ve ever seen!  The knowledge, engagement, and passion of the instructors was awesome!  As someone sitting in the background observing – it was obvious the boys were highly engaged and benefiting from the opportunity. 

Thanks again!  Please pass along to any others who made this happen. 

Seth Madole

Adam and Jesse,

Awesome camp and thanks for everything that you guys do! You guys are huge assets and leaders of the Minnesota baseball community!
