Developing Hitters that have the ability to compete at the highest level of the game is what we aim to do. We make an effort to consistently evaluate our process and the methods to which we teach using data points and analysis. At APA, we work with athletes ranging from the Major Leagues through youth baseball.


Our hitting philosophy is based around identifying key elements to each hitters unique make-up. We do not believe that hitters should be put "in a box" as it pertains to mechanics but through self-discovery and analysis, each hitter works with our staff to build their swing in truly a collaborative effort .


While there is not one specific style to which elite hitters swing, there is an elite pattern that we see with the games highest level hitters. Blending the unique "style" of each hitter with the elite "patterns" is a process that takes time. There are no shortcuts. However, we believe that each hitter can possess a mechanical advantage that creates a greater margin for success.


If you are a hitter looking to take a cumulative approach to your development,  if you are a ballplayer looking to become the best version of yourself or are simply trying to learn as much as you can about the swing then we can start from here. We at APA/The Baseball Institute are constantly learning and evolving to develop the best systems for our athletes. We look forward to sharing that information with you!

AP Academy serves as an off-season destination for many athletes looking to maximize their training off-campus. Whether it is for a long-weekend or summer break, we provide athletes with an opportunity to continue training at a high level. Our program design is based around the specific need of each athlete.

Training methods used will depend on the individual as well as the sport that they play as all have "target" areas.
