Baseball has been Al Herback’s life! Al’s involvement as a player, coach and instructional trainer has spanned over 60 years. For the past 44 years, he has been training coaches and managers who have had an interest in working with children wanting to learn and play baseball. His philosophy:

  • The game of baseball will never change, but the way we teach our children has changed considerably in the past few years.
  • The majority of children only want to play and may not be concerned if they become great or even good.
  • As every child is unique and will have strengths and weaknesses, we must do everything we can to help each one reach attainable goals with the skills of baseball/softball.
  • They must always be in a safe environment, have fun through activity, be taught to improve their performance and, through your help, build the confidence in each individual child to succeed in this wonderful game!

Come out and experience his new instructional program. It will be truly beneficial to all coaches and managers working with these age groups and interested parents are always welcome. As this will be an event to enjoy, wear comfortable clothing, bring a glove, a lot of enthusiasm and Al will bring the program to life for you! A manual for each session will be available for $5.
