GRIND 4 MINE.
To succeed in baseball, and more importantly in life, you must learn to grind. Grinding is pouring your blood, sweat and tears into your work. Grinding is having a desire to out-work everyone else, regardless of the situation. Grinding is a commitment. The one that grinds the most is the one that gets the most.
Our fall high school program is centered around preparing the players to compete in elite-level tournaments that will provide our players with the competition and exposure necessary to reach the next level of baseball.
Rake City is a Wilson Premier DeMarini Platinum Squad, and will have the opportunity to send teams at the sophomore, junior and senior level to one of the country’s most exclusive tournaments every September, either in Arizona or Florida.
At the 16/17U level, our players will participate in Perfect Game’s World Wood Bat Underclass Championship in Ft. Myers, Florida in mid-October.
At the 17/18U level, our players will participate in Perfect Game’s Kernels Foundational Tournament, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, at the end of September.
Our 15U players will attend a local tournament and play as 16U's.
The teams will start practice the first week of September, and they will be held every Saturday and Sunday until their respective tournament.
During the fall season, our players will undertake the knowledge and responsibility of what it takes to be a part of Rake City and the work necessary to achieve great things.
After-school workout program
Our after-school workout program is structured to turn a good player into a great one.
Starting in September, we structure an after-school workout program where our high school players can train in our facility four days each week. Mondays and Wednesdays will be dedicated to weight training, understanding the importance of proper mechanics while lifting and how to fight through pain. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, players will work on hitting with Rake City instructors, while also working on speed and agility on Tuesday.
We also offer a two-day, lifting-only option.
$130/Month – four-day program
$75/Month – two-day, lifting-only program
HS 4 Day Program
HS 2 Day Program
Our winter training is where we concentration our focus on addressing the mechanics of our players, from fielding and hitting, to pitching and catching. The players will be trained for four consecutive months by Rake City staff members, engaging in hands-on instruction to improve all aspects of their game.
Beginning in November, our winter training runs through the end of February. Training will take place every Saturday or Sunday inside our facility, and last for 90 minutes at each age level. For those that do not attend the high school offseason workout program, there is a 30-minute workout following the 90-minute baseball-focused training.
The month of February is dedication to bringing together all aspects of the offseason workouts and training, betting our players in game-like settings, with pitchers and hitters facing each other in live at-bats.
Players will leave winter training with 20-30 live at-bats be more prepared than their peers when starting practice for the high school season.
