I was SO pleased with this organization and all the coaches. I can't say enough good things about the experience my boys had this week. We were hoping they would learn some hard work and baseball skills, and they came away with so much more - an appreciation for leadership, integrity, and digging in. Especially pleased with how patient and accommodating you were with my usually shy and withdrawn son - you drew him out and gave him the opportunity to grow at his level, not someone else's. That's not something I've seen many other places! Excellent coaching, excellent environment, great facilities, well thought out program. We will def be back!

If you are looking for baseball instruction, there are numerous options out there. However, when we walked through the doors of Centerfield 8 years ago, we knew without a doubt that it was the right place for our son, Tristan. We were looking for a place that would train him as total player, not just one aspect of the game. The instructors at Centerfield are clearly knowledgeable in the mechanics of what they teach, but it is the focus on character development that has benefited him the most as a person, a student, a teammate, and a player. The lessons on honor, integrity, sacrifice and even failure have all contributed to making him the player he is and the success he has had to date.
Time and time again, we have heard scouts, recruiters, and coaches ask the questions, "What kind of person is he?" and "What kind of teammate is he?" These questions always precede, "What is his batting average?" Tristan was recently selected to the USA Baseball National Development Team and some of their leading qualifications for selection included recommendations on the type of person and teammate he is.
The staff at Centerfield have made character development the central focus of their instruction since day one, and now 8 years later we can clearly see the effect that is having on Tristan's success in all aspects of life. Thank you Centerfield for training Tristan to be more than a baseball player.

Hi Coach (Edgar Soto) - I am writing to say thanks for your spot-on hitting evaluation of my son Spencer Henegar (a Junior at Marana HS) in late Oct. 2014 at Center Field Hits. You identified a good powerful swing with a slight casting of his hands. You showed us a drill to belt his upper arms to keep the hands inside the ball.
