Each hitter will receive instruction with coaches to improve their swing mechanics and approach at the plate. Hitters will learn the philosophy that has made Coach Melendez' Teams so successful in recent years. In 2013, Alabama State's lineup finished 1st in Home runs and 2nd in batting average, doubles, and RBI's. Furthermore, ASU has had three Louisville Slugger Freshman All-Americans in the past two seasons.
Pitchers will be put through college style workouts that emphasize mechanics and velocity. They will also throw to hitters live at the end of the day so the coaches can evaluate them in a game situation. They will also be given an in-depth pitcher specific strength and conditioning program designed to improve all facets of pitching. It is the same program that has helped Coach Melendez' teams lead the MEAC & SWAC Conferences in nearly every major pitching statistic over the last 13 years.
Infielders and outfielders will be taken through rigorous instruction that focuses on quality reps to improve the fundamentals of fielding. Each player will be broken down defensively and built back up with the proper technique and fundamentals.
Each camper must bring his own baseball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, batting gloves, helmet, cleats/spikes, running shoes or turf shoes, hat, and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete.
