These are the baseball programs for the Winter of 2020.
UBC Thunderbird Minors and Majors Baseball Development Program
The winter Minors and Majors Development program is where we will shift our focus towards getting each player ready for their season. Pitchers will be simulating in game competition, and learning how to throw multiple pitches for strikes. Towards the end of the program we will have pitchers throwing live to hitters, and putting their skills to the test. By the end of the program, hitters will be fully prepared to face live pitching and have a successful season. Young hitters need exposure to as many live at-bats as possible to feel comfortable at the plate, and we will create a competitive atmosphere to give them an advantage in April. Defensively, players will begin to work on team oriented skill work which includes: double plays, cuts and relays, and communication.
