Why Clinton Twp. Fury 14u Travel Team?


TRAINING PLAYERS

FROM EXPERIENCE


Fury Baseball manager Jonathan Adam Reed was a pitcher, infielder and outfielder in the Macomb Amateur Baseball Federation in the 1980s/1990s, played 4 years of baseball At Warren Woods Tower High School (3 as a varsity starting pitcher and infielder), walked on to the Macomb Community College baseball team, after college played in the 18+ East-Side MSBL Baseball League where he pitched 9 complete innings to win the MSBL Championship Game in 1998, then continued to pitch and play baseball up until the age of 37 years until he started to teach younger baseball players the skills he aquired throughout a long baseball span.

TRAINING PLAYERS

FROM EXPERIENCE


What experience has been passed on over the last serveral years to our teams baseball players? In 2015/2016 we formed our MABF/USSSA Fury Baseball team and taught our players the reasoning around the 2 seam and 4 seam fastball. In 2017, we added the circle change to give our players an initial offspeed pitch. Then in 2018/2019 we incorporated the normal and 12/6 curve ball to the players pitching arsenol. Our players are taught how to throw the curve ball the proper way to prevent arm injury.

TRAINING PLAYERS

FROM EXPERIENCE


We focus on strength training, proper mechanics and limiting pitch counts to keep our pitchers healthy. Too many coaches push players pitch counts to the point where the players futures may be adversely affected. Not all our players are pitchers by trade however another aspect that sets us apart is that all our players pitch over the winter. All players on our team understand all the possible pick-off moves and pitching strategy which allows us to work as a team to control the base runners. A player might not be a pitcher but they understand what the pitchers are going to do.

TRAINING PLAYERS

FROM EXPERIENCE


We are one of the best teams at controlling the base runners. We use proven techniques to control the base paths;

  • Special Timing Plays
  • Special Day Light Plays
  • Special Trick Plays
  • Special Pick-Off Plays
  • Inside and Spin Moves
  • Efficient Pick-Off from Left Side/Right Side
  • And more..

Many teams we play still physically hold base runners at the base and create gaps in their defense. We work as a team to control the base runners on our own terms which allows us to have no open holes in our defense. We measure our players throwing velocity, ball exit speed off a the tee, pop times, running times from leading off, and pitching delivery times. Our players are baseball smart because we teach them what they need to know. This will be our 5th year in the MABF and USSSA.

Location


Majority of our rostered players are from Clinton Township, Sterling Heights, Mount Clemens and the surrounding area.


Outdoor practices will be conducted in the Clinton Township area.
