Mannino’s Grand Slam is working with OYAA area baseball to offer a spring training program for OYAA baseball players. The training sessions will provide the opportunity to work on defense, pitching, fielding, throwing and hitting at Mannino’s Grand Slam.
Hitting- Hitters will be rotated through a series of drills and hitting stations that work on both the basic and advanced mechanics of a swing. The program is designed to improve a players balance, timing, pitch recognition, power, bat speed, and confidence. Bunting is also covered. Hitters are taught an understanding of their swing, allowing them to continue to develop on their own. Through repetition, hitters will develop consistency in their swing and create a better approach at the plate allowing them to hit the ball harder.
Field / Throw / & Catch Sessions are designed to teach players the fundamentals of the game. Our coaches will teach the proper footwork and throwing mechanics it takes to progress as a young player. By learning the basics, players become more comfortable catching a ball and fielding a ball both in practice and a game.
Other Skills Covered: Base running, relays and run downs, and sliding.
