We are a year round educational as well as baseball program, especially for young inner-city youth who we take care of from Middle school through 12th grade and college. We make sure that grades and degrees are earned. Our goals are to place kids into college through baseball scholarships We have placed in 100 kids into colleges in the past 8 years. We have never had a kid dropout or fail once they went off to college.
Our goals are to develop quality baseball players who are even better students. Out of 100 players who have come through this program we have a 100% high school graduation rate and 100% college graduate rate.
The Harlem Baseball Hitting Academy has produced: 2x NCAA National Baseball Champions, 25 Perfect Game All-Americans, 4 AFlack All-Americans, 6 PSAL Champions, 1 CHAAA Champion. We take the player through a rigorous program that will improve him offensively as well as defenselessly.
