Blizzard to offer hitting/fielding program in South Metro...

The Blizzard Baseball Academy is excited to announce that starting in January, 2019 there will be a more convenient option for players in the Sout Metro!  We are partnering with @BAT Player Development out of Farmington.

The Blizzard @BAT program will be a group hitting and fielding program spanning six Sunday sessions (3 in January, 3 in February) of 90 minutes each.  Players will train as a group for 45 minutes of hitting and 45 minutes of fielding. 

"We have been looking to give players in Southern half of the Twin Cities a Blizzard training location closer to home," Blizzard owner Adam Barta said.  "A partnership with Scott Hughes and @BAT serves that need and we are excited to offer our programming in another area of the metro."

The hitting portion of the program will also include the use of a HitTrax system.  The HitTrax puts players in a virtual Major League stadium, and allows players to see exit velocity off the bat, ball flight, and distance in a confined/indoor space. 

"The HitTrax system will allow us to keep track of players' progress in their swings throughout the program," Program Director Jesse Tollefson said.  "Plus it's going to be really fun trying to hit balls over the virtual Green Monster or into Monument Park at Yankee Stadium!"

After 45 minutes of hitting, players will move on to a weekly 45 minute infield session covering the following skills:
1) Athleticism
2) Glove Work
3) Footwork
4) Pre-Pitch Set-Up
5) 1st Step Quickness / Reaction
Players will be challenged in a high-tempo, fun environment!
