Carmen Fusco Pro Baseball & Softball Academy
As Pennsylvania's most experienced baseball and softball training facility, we are committed to giving players the best training information available. We are constantly improving our teaching methods and challenging players of all ages to take control of their futures, whether that be playing locally or professionally, high school or college. Our individual baseball training is second to none. We offer pitching instruction and hitting lessons, as well as defensive instruction and academy teams for both baseball and softball.
Swing and delivery video analysis is a routine part of our instruction. Video analysis helps us identify the cause of the problem and allows us to show the player what is wrong and how to best correct the issue. This helps get the coach and player get on the same page and is also the quickest way to get a player working on his/her needs.
The quality of instruction will be consistent and tailored to the players' needs with the purpose of developing both mental and physical skills. The process will take place in a professional, competitive and educational environment; however, we always have one coach to one player at a lesson. We believe that each player deserves a coach's undivided attention to help make them be the best player they can be. The challenge for the player is to bring a confident and aggressive attitude along with a solid work ethic.
Create and foster a positive learning environment focused on discipline, preparation, and hard work which will create the complete amateur player mentally, physically and fundamentally.
To remain the premier baseball academy in Pennsylvania which accepts all baseball and softball players regardless of talent level. We will be devoted to bridging the gap between potential and performance for every player and must never lose sight that all players within our system are potential high school and collegiate prospects.
