Live arm pitching to hitters! Work on hitting curve balls, sliders and change-ups. Work on two strike hitting and hitting with runners on base. Experienced BP pitchers throwing strikes with real baseballs. Get back your timing. Advance your game.
The line drive is a wood bat competition between high school players on 2-man teams. Former college players and professional pitchers will be throwing. This league fills up fast. Represent your school and get in lots of swings
Whether you want it to be a party/celebration or work on your team building and leadership skills, your Baseball Bash could be a fun and rewarding experience for all who attend.
We have been members since The Strike Zone opened. Bobby has grown up in the batting cages and tunnels. He has attended countless clinics over the years, including Ultimate Hitting and the Line Drive League, participated in the Fall Baseball League, and received instruction from the majority of current and past Strike Zone coaches. The coaching that he receives at The Strike Zone is not only age appropriate, but facilitates the development of advanced skills that make it possible for him to play the game at its highest level for his age group. The Strike Zone is absolutely the best baseball training facility in Omaha.
I just returned from Central High School where my son David signed today to play baseball for Creighton University next year. I want to thank the Strike Zone staff for all that you guys did for him and all the players on your Fall Elite Team. It was a great experience for him (and me too) to get a chance for him to work with you as well as to get the chance to get exposed to all the college coaches you played against, and also the ones that came to the games. If you ever have a parent that would like to speak to someone who had a kid on your team, feel free to send them my way. I have nothing but the utmost respect for you guys and your program.
Having recently moved to Florida, we are finding a whole new attitude concerning baseball. What we have not found, however, is a facility and staff that compares to yours. We have not had any success finding a club or facility that has the talent and programs comparable to yours.
I recently graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney where I played for two years. Being from western Nebraska, I did not have the opportunity to play spring baseball. All of my exposure came during the summer and at the Exposure/Combines. Along with the opportunity to perform in front of scouts and coaches, I was able to meet other baseball players from around the nation. Players were selected during the camp to participate in a scrimmage. I would not have been able to play baseball as long as I did if it were not for the Exposure/Combines like this one. Many players heave been signed by colleges as a result of this camp. I would not miss out on this opportunity to be seen and further your baseball career.
Ed Vidlak - Son plays for WWAA Coach Siwa - Been meaning to email you since the coaches clinic March 18th and 25th. Just wanted to pass on to you how much I appreciated and enjoyed the clinic. Everything was first class -- incredibly informative and relevant. You should know that our team's kids (WWAA) and my own kids are being raised with skills and philosophies handed down from you, Coach Mckay, and your Strike Zone staff. We're very fortunate to have you guys right here in Omaha.
Coach Mckay, I just wanted to send you a note saying thank you for all of your work last winter with Cole. He definitely benefited from your classes and he had his best season playing baseball yet. He hit the ball every game and it was just nice to see him get in the batters box with confidence. He even made the all-star team in his league and had a great experience with that as well. We hope to be able to take a class or two from you again this winter. Thank You!
Dale Novacek- regarding College Recruiting Joe: I just wanted to thank you for hosting the "College Recruiting" discussion last night. My son walked away very impressed with the presentations and the "matter of fact" stories about playing college ball, and I was vindicated last night. I've always told him that a coach always likes a player who has heart, who hustles, who is a team player, and who is very coachable. To me stats never were a determining factor when I used to recruit select players. I always looked for attitude! I think my son finally agrees with me, after all my years of coaching! You see son, dad really does know what he is talking about! If you ever decide to schedule this event again, I will definitely help spread the word.
Dear Strike Zone, We have been members of the Strike Zone for several years, and we still are but I wanted to let you know about a recent experience we had elsewhere in another fall baseball league. I am almost ashamed to tell you that my son didn’t play fall ball at the Strike Zone this year, he played fall baseball at one of the “other” places so that he could be on a team with a friend. Unfortunately, the experience was horrible. My son was ready to quit playing baseball-it was so bad, and his friend was right along with him. When playing at the Strike Zone, my son always had fun, learned, and improved. The coaches know their stuff and have always been positive, and one of the things that kept my son in baseball was the promise that we would go back to Strike Zone next fall. Keep doing it the way you always have. We are coming back!
Joe, Tim and I enjoyed being a part of fall ball with our sons and had a really great time. It has been busy, but well worth it. Thanks!
Many of my students at Jesuit Middle have never been exposed to baseball instruction. When they arrived for their fieldtrip to the Strike Zone, Joe immediately welcomed them and assured them of a great and fun learning experience. With the encouragement and expertise of Coach Siwa and his staff, our young men were not only making contact but hitting line drives. Already several have asked me if a return trip to the Strike Zone can be a part of the year end field day.
Coach Siwa, Thank you again for sponsoring and hosting another successful Fall Ball Season. Our boys improved noticeably in both their individual and team skills. Your Tuesday night hitting clinics and your preseason weekend camps worked well with school schedules and kept their heads in the game for a couple of more months. We know that keeping their skills tuned during the off season is so important with baseball, especially at this age when their bodies are changing and growing so much. How they move to field a ball, how they use their throwing mechanics, or even how they swing a bat can change dramatically on any given growth-spurt. Having Fall Ball was a big plus for our kids, keeping their skills polished while having fun doing it. Strike Zone is a great asset to our community!
