IMG Baseball Wood Bat League Testimonials
I would take to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you for helping to make this summer at the IMG wood bat league an experience that Ryan will never forget. He is very appreciative of this opportunity that we were able to provide him and says he "will never forget it"! He grew as a person and an athlete. He learned a lot about himself and is more focused than ever on what he needs to do to be a successful baseball player. Thanks so much!
What an amazing experience IMG Wood Bat League 2010 has been! My son has been fortunate enough to play the game of baseball for the last 10 years of his life. In this time he has played on many teams and at many great venues
played Boys Club of America, USSSA select travel baseball, Grand Slam Tournaments, Triple Crown Tournaments, East Cobb Baseball, Perfect Game USA, College Showcases, and currently plays High School Varsity baseball in Georgia. The IMG Wood Bat League experience this summer has been the best experience of his baseball life. The facilities that IMG offers are world class, the instructors were professional and very knowledgeable of the game we all love, and the competition level was incredible. (Our son) has become a better player and a better person with this experience. We are very grateful to have had this experience.
Kit.... Just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you for the time you spent getting me acclimated with IMG and also commend the program and the staff! Looks like (our son) is interested in returning next summer so am planning on seeing you all again soon! He is seriously considering attending Pendleton his junior year depending on what happens in school ball this year.....Thanks again and all the best
IMG's Wood Bat Program is really impressive! I was struck by the focus, serious-mindedness, professionalism and great attitude of the players, coaches and even the parents on the side lines. The players were supportive of each other and all about the business of improving their games, from the 15 year old, 5'4" 130 pound second baseman on my son's team to the 6'1", 200 pound first baseman. The boys worked together beautifully, didn't crow over their triumphs, and didn't lose their cool when things didn't go well. The coach, Pete Pachiorek, played everyone, and the parents who've been there the most commented that he has been very careful to give the boys equal playing time. I've never seen anything like this in the world of youth sports. As for (my son), he didn't gain weight this summer, but he's rock hard with muscles and his game is hugely improved. He batted 1000 in yesterday's game, stole three bases, and had some excellent fielding. He's enjoying the kids and coaches a lot, and VERY excited about the championship games.
He was just there for 3 weeks in July and loved your camp
..Ken, my son told me he has never experienced a better coaching staff and knowledge base then you and Andy displayed. Im very grateful for your supervision and mentoring.
(Our son) seems to have settled in and is having a great time at IMG. He says he is always tired; as you predicted. My wife and I love the online photos; they make us feel more connected from here in California.
Just wanted to let you know that (our son) is enjoying every minute of the summer wood bat league. It looks like you'll probably see his younger brother and more players come down from Southern Maine and NH next year.
Many thanks for your coaches help to my son in IMG Baseball Camp. I had a chance to watch the practices yesterday, and it is a great opportunity for my son to get such excellent coaching and be around your top-notch program. Your coaches really develop a great rapport with the kids, and are great teachers of the game. In the future, we will try to send more youth players to your camps for training.
