Every year, USA Baseball hand picks some of the best baseball minds and instructors in the game to lead our national teams. And every year, those coaching staffs use their incredible wealth of knowledge, passion and skill to take the best players in the U.S. to new heights both on and off the field.
Now, those same coaches are joining us to expand the reach of that instruction to every young baseball player who wants to learn from the best through the USA Baseball Experience.
This newest virtual development offering will give athletes – no matter where they are – an incredible opportunity to learn from gold medal-winning national team coaches and train just like players who represent the U.S. on the highest stage. As long as you’ve got an internet connection, a glove, a bat, a ball and plenty of space to move around, you can experience training like a national team athlete.
The USA Baseball Experience will feature three 75-minute instructional sessions led by some of the best coaches in the game. All three sessions will focus on offensive, defensive and auxiliary skills, including infield and outfield play, swing mechanics, base-running fundamentals and increasing baseball IQ with instructors actively demonstrating each new skill and technique while athletes follow along at home.
And the best part? Any baseball player can sign up and, while the sessions are intended for foundational players, each one will be tailored to the athletes participating and their ability levels.
But instructional content and basic how-tos aren’t all the USA Baseball Experience offers. Each of the three sessions will feature an interactive conversation with a past USA Baseball athlete, including alumni such as 14-year MLB veteran and World Baseball Classic champion Adam Jones.
Each of the special guests will spend time talking about their careers, their experiences in baseball and with Team USA, their advice for amateur players and more. They’ll also answer questions from participants, giving each athlete a unique opportunity to have a conversation with some of the best athletes to represent the U.S. in international play.
At just $99 for all three sessions with a bonus gift from the USA Baseball Shop for the first 150 registrants, it’s a steal. Plus, as a virtual experience, it’s the perfect last-minute gift for any young baseball player – one that will keep on giving well into the new year. The sessions are set to take place on January 14, January 21 and January 28 from 7-8:15 p.m. ET, and the following represents a general timeline of each session:
7:00-7:15 p.m. ET – Introduction of the evening’s focus
