Kara in the head softball instructor at Allstars Academy and has been teaching pitching, hitting and fielding lessons for the past 10 years. Currently, she plays in women and men’s leagues around the Capital Region. Recently, she was awarded the 2010 Fall MVP award in the highest men’s division in the Andy’s Sports league.
I have been training and teaching at All Stars Academy for several years now and have seen firsthand how Mike’s hitting and pitching
programs improve a player’s performance. It is important to train and work on specific skills in the game of baseball, but more important to bring these skills into a game situation. Mike’s programs train you to be a better player and then test your skills in a game situation. This in my opinion is the only
way to become a better player.
