Greetings from the IMG Baseball Academy,
The number 60 is synonymous with baseball because of Babe Ruth. “The Babe” was the first player to hit 60 home runs in one season (1927), setting a record which stood until 1961.
For the IMG Wood Bat Leagues presented by Under Armour the number 60 is also very significant. It marks the point when we begin to track enrollment by position, so as not to overload on any one position. We have reached and passed this milestone four months ahead of the pace of any previous year!
To date, 63 players representing 19 states and four countries have accepted our invitation and registered. If you are one of those players, congratulations and welcome to the premier high school summer wood bat league in the country!
If you have not registered, then please consider the single fact that separates the Wood Bat Leagues from every other summer high school program……TRAINING! These days summer baseball has become all about playing games without any workouts or training. Do you want to just play games, or would you like to be working in the batting cage and bullpen, doing defensive drills, conditioning, and still be playing more than 20 games?
Our players reach their full potential by developing in a comprehensive environment (proven ratio of games to training sessions is 1:1) that includes games, practices, and strength/speed workouts. The physical and mental training offered by the IMG Performance Institute (IPI) helps players gain strength and speed, while increasing confidence and mental toughness.
The opportunity to participate in the 2012 IMG Wood Bat Leagues will be over soon! If you are passionate about baseball and have the desire to improve your game, I hope that you will consider this incredible adventure and submit the application today for your best summer of baseball……ever!
