Summer Baseball With Purpose

Michigan Area Braves – #ProChop Training

The Michigan Area Braves will host current college and soon-to-be pro athletes at our facilities in Saginaw, Michigan. Athletes will receive focused plans and competitive tournament games, or what we call #ProChop Training. Our goal is to improve on-field performance for players who want to succeed. Braves athletes will have daily access to train and will then compete in live games with meaning.  Our roster will include athletes from all levels and universities to maximize development WARNING: THIS IS NOT WHAT OTHER SUMMER PROGRAMS DO.

#ProChop Training is for all collegiate baseball players, including graduating seniors.  Both positional players and pitchers can develop offensively, defensively, on the mound, in the cage, in the pen and in the weight room.
