The first weekend of December is TCB's annual College Prospect Camp. Over the years college coaches from Notre Dame, LSU, Maryland and Boston College have been instructors in this College Prospect event. The TCB program is appreciative of all the coaches who have traveled from throughout the country to be part of this special day. This year college coaches from the Northeast arrived early Saturday morning for the pitching and hitting sessions. TCB's philosophy for off season training and college guidance begins with the College Prospect Camp. This is just one of many benefits being a TCB player.
TCB players participated in the morning pitching instruction with Coach Justin Blood (University of Hartford). Other key note instructors for the morning pitching session included Greg Zackrison from Stone Hill College. Some of the topics included were mound composure, TEMPO, and pitching from the stretch.
The afternoon hitting session included former TCB Alumni Coach Mike Leonard (Bates College) who shared Bates Baseballs' hitting approach. Another TCB Alumni Coach Sean O'Brien (University of Rhode Island) introduced hitting drills that will help the TCB players with their practice during the Winter. The University of Connecticut Coach Jeff Hourigan shared hitting philosophies of the Husky's including the understanding contact points in the hitting zone. The TCB players will benefit from the coaches and their various baseball hitting programs.
I am really excited to watch our younger players that are freshman and sophomores have the opportunity to interact with these top college coaches from the Northeast. The high level learning environment will help our young players continue in their development." Says Bob Hetu 13u to 14u Director
"Seeing our players work hand in hand with some of the top college coaches in the Northeast, re‐assures what we are teaching at TCB as well as creates excitement for their college recruiting and exposure opportunities" says Dan Kennedy, 15u‐18u director.
