2021

Plan B:

You may have already heard that Nevada’s Governor has extended their lockdown for another 30 days, shutting our Spring Training program down for the first time in 30 years. We think it was Casey Stengel that famously said baseball players must make adjustments from pitch to pitch and pitcher to pitcher.  In other words, “drastic times call for drastic measures”, we do not know who said that…

Here’s the plan: we’re going to turn our traditional two day Spring Training into a two week event.

Week one will be full of big-league instruction, literally.

Former MLB shortstop, manager and current Atlanta Braves bench coach Walt Weiss

MLB World Champion and Cy Young Award winning pitching coach Brent Strom

USA Baseball National Collegiate Team Outfielder, two-time Pac 12 player of the year, Major League all-star outfielder and Kavin’s college roommate who taught him everything he knows Michael Conforto. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BASED ON MICHAELS RESPONSILITIES TO THE METS.

Former 10-year MLB All-Star catcher and Utah/ Wyoming native, MBA Alumni John Buck

Week Two will be a tournament.

Tournament will be played in our MBA monster cages (22’ H x 22’ W x 84’ L) with live pitchers and umpires.  Opening day will be Friday February 12th and Championship day will be Saturday February 20th.  This will allow teams who have now committed to a tournament over president’s day weekend to still participate in both the camp before Presidents day, and the tournament after president’s day by scheduling their team’s games during to following week.  This is an opportunity to get extra live at-bats before tryouts and Spring Season.
