  • New scheduling software coming The scheduling software that we have been using for the past year and a half has presented some challenges for users.  The software is not as user friendly as we would like it to be and the client side interface is confusing and unnatural.  Therefore, we have decided to bite the bullet and make the change to a new software package called eSOFT.   This software was written by programmers working for another baseball academy, much like Play Ball Sports Academy, so we believe that it will be a natural fit for our business.  The transition will occur over the next 60 days.  Notice the new eSoft tab at the top of the page.  If you are signing up for any ...

  • Three hours with World Series winning manager Charlie Manuel I was invited to a coaches clinic where the keynote speaker was Charlie Manuel and I was excited to attend because I knew that it would be an intimate setting where I would probably have an opportunity to talk to him and try and learn from him.  As many of you know, Charlie Manuel was the former hitting coach and manager of the Cleveland Indians.  While he was there, he coached star players such as Albert Belle, Carlos Baerga, Robby Alomar, Manny Ramirez, Sandy Alomar, Kenny Lofton, Jim Thome, Omar Vizquel and more.  There are at least two or three hall of famers in this list.  Now he is the manager for the Philadelphia Philles where he won a World ...
