We are pleased to be able to offer another round of training in November before we break for the holidays. If you attended October training, November will continue to build off those lessons. If you couldn’t attend in October that is fine too as the training will be structured in small groups and focused on players' individual needs. Due to an abundance of requests, we have also added a fun activity with Whiffle Ball Wednesdays.
All training will be held at Diamond Baseball Academy, 51187 Devonshire Blvd Shelby Twp. MI 48315. A 10,000 square foot indoor baseball facility behind premier sports and tropical smoothie (just north of Hayes Road). Once the available spots fill registration will automatically close for that session. Training typically fills up quickly so please set yourself a reminder. MTLL will continue to work with Diamond Baseball Academy to offer our families baseball training throughout the winter months.
