UBC Baseball Live At-Bat Experience

The HitTrax Live At-Bat sessions provide the perfect competitive environment for all players to challenge themselves with a large number of live at-bats in a game simulation. The typical Little League season will have a player get approximately 80 at-bats in an 8-week season. It is very difficult for any player to reach their full potential with such a small amount of exposure to live game scenarios and pitching. We have set up a program that is able to provide an additional 200 live at-bats in an 8-week span, with only a single 1-hour session per week!

The program will allow a player to TRIPLE the amount of in-season live at-bats with one session a week!
