Hello Michael!
In case I do not get the chance to talk to you tomorrow at the end of camp, I wanted to let you know that Gabriel has been giving rave reviews for your hitting camp. He has come home happy every day, enjoyed all the new things he has learned, has LOVED the game at the end of the day, and says this has been his most fun camp yet (and he's done ALOT of baseball camps over the years!). Thank you to you and your team for creating and running such a great camp for children!

Mike,
 
Thank you for running such a great baseball camp. Anthony learned a lot and really had a great time. All the coaches did a great job. It was nice meeting you and I look forward to signing him up again next year.

Mike also taught my son how to be a top-notch catcher in both fielding and hitting. Competitive attitude, determination and success = life lessons.

I heard these camps are great! Mike is an outstanding guy and one of the best catchers that I ever played ball with. We both grew up in Old Bridge, then he went to NC Wesleyan to play and I played at Muhlenberg College. He's a coach that I would recommend for any young player!!
