New Mexico's most successful, High School Select Team and Fall Showcase Team Program, is now offering the same high level program for younger players. The ABA Slugger Program is designed for players ages 9-14 who have the goals of playing baseball at the next levels.
The goal of the Slugger Program is to develop each player and each team, by providing specific training, based on age and ability.
Formula for Success:
