Player development and exposure

We have held between 14-22 teams annually since 2014. We provide more than 100 lessons per week, 8-11 teams working with trainers during practice, speed & agility for most teams, and newer facilities.

How has PBR been helpful?

PBR has been instrumental for all baseball players, not only in Michigan but all over the country. Establishing those relationships are vital.

Plans ahead

Black Swamp, Cooperstown, Myrtle Beach, Elizabethtown, Vero Beach, Grand Park and all over Michigan
