Register Online: www.diamondbaseballkop.com

This advanced 6 week baseball program is open to catchers at the high school level (9th to 12th grade) who are interested in improving their catching skills and fundamentals. Former 1st round pick and 7yr MLB veteran, Ben Davis, will bring his professional baseball experience and excellence to Diamond Baseball. Ben formerly played for the San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners, and Chicago White Sox and is currently the color commentator for the Philadelphia Phillies. The 1.5hour sessions will include training in receiving, blocking, release time, footwork and calling a game that is required to successfully advance to the college level and beyond.

Please note that players will learn a step by step process to improve in all aspects of catching and all the intricacies of playing baseball at the NEXT LEVEL. This program will coincide with the pitching program run by former major league pitcher, Mark DiFelice. This set up will allow our catchers to not only work on their individual skill set to improve their overall development as a catcher, but take those skills learned into the bullpen to catch live pitching. Players should expect a high level of repetition in defensive drills that create positive results with the quality of the instruction that will be available through Ben and the rest of our professional staff. Although there will be a significant amount of teaching and demonstration as part of the program, players will be exposed to a teaching system set up to mirror a minor league spring training program that helps players get ready for their upcoming season. Quality repetition and a proven plan create the best results-something we pride ourselves on at Diamond Academy.
