The journey that has brought us to Snyder Baseball Academy to the Battlefield Sportplex, in Manassas, started when I retired from professional baseball in 1990, after 12 years. One of the most important lessons I learned when I began working with youth players, especially pitchers, was that, although I possessed a wealth of knowledge about the game, I really didn’t understand the development process of the youth player and how to apply all the years of experience. It takes time. I needed to watch my own three sons, Brandon, Mike and Matt, go through the process, which has now taken them all to the professional level. Over the course of the past 26 years of instruction and coaching, with the help of many other great coaches and former players, we have developed a much better understanding of that process. Our programs offer individualized instruction, small instructor to student ratios, a continuing focus on fundamentals, and the most experienced instructional staff in the metropolitan area.
