Best baseball school in NWI. The coaches really know baseball. Dave Griffin’s baseball school turns kids into athletes. I send my son here, and wouldn’t trust anyone else.

Samantha Klaich, Facebook Review

Dave Griffin's Baseball School is a great facility with even better instructors. The instructors create a relaxed environment for players of all ages to grow and succeed. After receiving pitching lessons for two years at Dave Griffin's Baseball School, I feel I have grown tremendously as a pitcher and a person.

Courtney Blackwell, Purdue Northwest Softball

Dave really knows his stuff. He can instantly see the qualities in every player.

Leonard A. Sobkowicz, Facebook Review

Dave Griffin's baseball & softball school offers a great experience to kids of all ages. Both of my sons began taking lessons from Dave Griffin at the age of 8 and one of them is a freshman for a Division l baseball team and the other is playing varsity in high school. Dave Griffin has a great understanding of baseball techniques and he keeps the fundamentals simple for the younger players and he expands the concepts as the player matures. He also has taught my boys what it takes to compete at high levels. Dave teaches his baseball concepts to the other instructors and has developed a strong baseball school. Dave Griffin and his instructors have a great ability to build strong relationship with all kids. Many of their former players and students keep in contact with him or his instructors for baseball advice. Dave's baseball school and teams have been a very positive experience for our family.

Perry Manous, Parent

Is a great place to go and get your good player made in to a great player

Kids today pitch too much and throw too little. The answer, according to coaches @TomHouse and @JaegerSports, is long toss. Check out our latest blog to learn how to incorporate this training method into your throwing routine! bit.ly/3chjRtw

Predetermined catcher’s pick at first base. Starts with a runner getting over extended at first as a result of too long a primary &/or too aggressive a secondary lead. IMO it is better to have a short lead w/momentum than an overly aggressive lead where you are vulnerable &

Every hitter should watch this.

Then, watch it again.

And again.

Absolute 🔥 from Dante Bichette.

Cobb sets high & picks from that position. Glove drops, arm loads & he makes a fast narrow radius turn. It’s his ‘A’ move & it’s accurate. ZERO value in picking with anything less than your best move in today’s game with limited disengagements.
