As our guys get going with their spring baseball seasons, we want to keep everybody informed about their progress and the fruits of their labor in the facility during the offseason. Because of stat availability and validity, we will track progress of our professional players, college players and high school varsity players. Our pro guys are just reporting to spring training, high school baseball starts this weekend, but college baseball has been rolling for about a month. Here is a report on our college players!
