ABC360 Varsity Edge fall showcase team and train-only programs

Overview: the Austin Baseball Club works exclusively with 14U-18U year old ball players and families (8th-12th grade). Our primary focus of resources and attention is helping ball players (and families) reach their max potential and ensure that they have a clear understanding of the Process. The Process is hard; however, it provides life-lessons (if you allow it to). We embrace, define, and mentor through each step of your high school baseball timeline:

  • 8th/9th graders: best prepare for spring high school tryouts and make the high school team

  • underclassman: develop into an impact varsity player (as quickly as possible)

  • upperclassman: clearly understand what it takes to transition into baseball at the next level (and beyond)

How? ABC has provided first class baseball programming and fielded premier select/showcase teams in Austin for 20 years. We have perfected a true Player Development Program that balances instruction (play development), repetitions (muscle memory), games and showcases (exposure). All activities in the ABC program have a purpose, a goal and a curriculum designed to be innovative and progressive. We carefully plan each indoor and field workout and guarantee Player Development in the following critical areas:

  • Technical skills (fundamentals and mechanics) workout video

  • Tactical skills (where to be and when)

  • Physical skills (speed.agility.quickness;strength) workout video

  • Mental skills (approach, handling adversity, etc) sample Swingtherapy workshop curriculum (hitting approach)

Where? North & South. ABC hosts training/practices north and south with access to private indoor training academies. Click for more info/locations of ABC indoor space. North players train and play with teammates at our north indoor academy and attend field practice on our north "home field"; south players train at our south indoor academy and at our south "home field". No more criss-crossing town (and traffic) to get to practice.

Exposure?: ABC participates in local, regional and state tournaments/showcases hosted by Perfect Game, Perfect Game Super25, Texas Showcase League and Texas Baseball Tournaments which attract premier teams from around the region and state. ABC teams play primarily in collegiate venues as well as additional first class venues located in central Texas to ensure max exposure (ex: Texas State, Texas A&M, Baylor, St.Edward's Univ, Southwestern Univ, MCC, Temple College, Texas Lutheran Univ, Austin ISD, Round Rock ISD, etc). The ABC "exposure guarantee" is also backed by participation in multiple College Coach showcase tournaments (as a team) where 30+ recruiters and scouts are guaranteed to be present (DI, DII, DIII, JUCO). College coaches will be present in the stands, in the dugout and on the field. Multiple college coaches will be assigned specifically to our team to provide personal evaluations and host post game meeting. Click to watch video and learn more about these innovative College Coach Showcase events.

 The Austin Baseball Club is committed to playing Quality baseball, in Quality venues, against Quality competition, while staying in central Texas. We do not need to "travel" just to travel; allowing families the opportunity to commute to majority of events and sleep in their own beds. The ABC rising seniors (summer after junior year) travel to the #1 top rated national tournament each summer (Perfect Game 17U national championship) to ensure we are maximizing their exposure during the most critical time of their recruiting timeline (summer after junior year) *the ABC organization handles every aspect related to travel to this event.

Fall schedule? Each ABC fall team will participate in a minimum of six first-class tournament and showcase events primarily hosted on Sunday's; however, the schedule will include state/regional tournaments hosted Sat and Sun. We target three events in Sept and three in Oct; ABC winter league games on Sunday's begin in Nov and Dec. Teams have two scheduled practices during the week (one indoor practice; one field practice).

You provide the desire; we provide the opportunity: Players looking to commit more time to their craft have the opportunity to attend additional optional workouts during the week (ex: baseball specific SAQ - speed.agility.quickness) as well as take full advantage of their ABC360 "unlimited access" pass (to the ABC indoor academies) ensuring each player can reach our goal of 1 million swings.

Roster? The ABC organization places a premium on playing time; however, ABC does not guarantee playing time (this is consistent with the high school baseball culture where playing time is earned, not entitled). Each player on the 12-14 man roster will have a role. You can expect that there will be 6-7 impact-players who are in the line up a lion-share of the time leaving 3-4+ spots in the line up for role players/rotating players. Roles are fluid and at times temporary and fleeting. You are either an impact player or a role player; we do not have a role defined as "bench sitter". If you are on the team, you will play; however, please understand that in sports of every kind and at every level, you are either Undeniable (very few), Invaluable (everyone can rise to this level), or Insignificant (on the team, but called upon only when needed).
