THE BASEBALL FOUNDRY: FORGING ELITE ATHLETES
IT ALL STARTED
…at the ballpark. Finding the person to help build your youth athlete is tough. Identifying a program with skilled coaches, who are as knowledgeable about the game as they are adept communicators, is even more difficult. Ask the parent of any youth athlete and the story is the same. When you look far and wide and can’t find what you’re looking for, you build it better, smarter, and with a keen eye towards player development. You affiliate with only the best coaches and trainers.
Everything we do at The Baseball Foundry is built upon the belief that kids have potential, and that coaches, when given the tools and environment they need to practice their craft, can build remarkable athletes and players. We don’t seek to recreate what every facility and trainer in Atlanta does. We’re market disrupters – game changers – seeking to elevate the standards of youth athletic development. There is enormous and life-long value in putting professional coaches and trainers together with hungry kids and adolescents and dedicated parents.
Jason Garcia, our Director of Athletics, hails from the MLB where he played for 11 years. All other coaches have extensive experience; some have played professional ball, others have played D1 ball, some are also collegiate coaches. Christian Almeda, our head of sports performance, holds his graduate degree in exercise science with a specific focus on strength and conditioning. Pedigree matters when you’re dealing with developing athletes.
Our state-of-the art training facility is designed with athletes of all skill levels in mind. We are in a space that offers the dual capability of being able to facilitate the advancement of youth athletic and sports performance while also being able to withstand and cater to the needs of professional athletes.
The time and financial sacrifice parents make to keep their kids engaged in competitive sports, especially those advancing to the next level, is astounding. Grades come before ball; but better grades and an enhanced academic experience can be obtained through physical exertion. Mental acuity is often the byproduct of physical activity. Everyone in our facility shares the belief in a balanced life, healthful choices, diversity, education, and in leaving the world a better place.
From the top down, everyone at The Baseball Foundry shares a fierce competitive nature that is balanced by effective communication and leadership skills, ethics, and sportsmanship. We wholeheartedly believe in strong role models. Make no mistake, participation trophies are not found here; this isn’t a “feel good” place. We like to win, but we will do it the right way. Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy spirit. Push hard and hustle, and rest when your body needs it. Practice smarter; more ball isn’t necessarily better ball. The quality of reps and methods of practicing matter. Have intent. Work with trainers that engage your youth athlete.
Cheating and shortcuts have no role in our mission. We are focused on showing youth athletes how to be the best version of themselves, and sports is the vehicle through which we help them accomplish the lofty task. Winning only matters when it’s the byproduct of grinding out hard work, sportsmanship, ethics, and focus. The best winners do so with humility and class and give back to the local community.
Thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you in the cages soon.
