We hear about the fall off in kids playing baseball today in the US & the rise of
baseball academies in Latin countries. The creation of this academy may help out. Joe
Morgan is also involved in the RBI Program, which will play their world series this
summer at the Compton facility. I hope this is wildly successful.
I'd even be happy just to see some hitting machine/batting cage places scattered around towns everywhere. How great would it be for any kid to
drop in there & try to smash a few balls? A good start would be anywhere around Legends
Field in Tampa, which currently features a few seedy adult entertainment sites & not much else.
