Danny Garcia to appear on the Roxanne Wilder Radio Show 1010am
Tampa, FL (March 17, 2016) – Danny Garcia of SportsEast Performance has been appointed the Director of Player Development at The Hitting Academy in Tampa, FL. The Hitting Academy provides baseball and softball instruction to young athletes. Offering batting cage rentals, private-hitting lessons and soon to come Power Hitting and Power Pitching classes that look to develop the overall strength to excel at the game. Danny Garcia explains, “This is a natural and perfect fit for both entities at this time. As The Hitting Academy continues to aggressively grow in new markets (Brandon, FL opening by April 1, 2016) and the new culture of travel baseball and softball intensifies, it’s imperative that we focus on the proper/current mechanics, conditioning and training for these young athletes to progress at their sport. The Hitting Academy and I realize that it is a privilege and responsibility to work with our youth (our future), and that empowering these individuals can play a much larger role in their development, much further than just baseball/softball. We will look to spread this mentality everywhere, in our instruction and in the community (making ourselves a resource to local parks/leagues).
Danny Garcia will be a featured guest on the Roxanne Wilder Talk Radio Show 1010am Monday, March 21 at 1:00pm. He will discuss the proper training needed for young baseball and softball athletes to avoid youth sports injuries and keep them healthy.
