NJ Axemen Baseball Association announce major partnership with Players Edge Training Facility.
The NJ Axemen Baseball Association a registered 501 (c)(3) charitable organization is proud to announce a major partnership and to be affiliated with Players Edge Training Facility located in Wayne, NJ. Players Edge is the baseball training leader when it comes to player development. Dan Gilligan heads-up the training facility is excited to train the Axemen organization and head-up the Axemen player development. Dan Gilligan said, "We use our facility to focus on the fundamentals of hitting, pitching and catching. We do not believe in pitching machines. It only creates bad habits where a player will learn only to hit a pitch in the same location at the same speed. Live pitching, even in batting practice, is the only way to reinforce the techniques which are taught at the Players Edge." Dan believes on the fundamental mechanics with live pitching. This allows the player to refine timing based on release points and learn specific pitching release points and hand positions. We us our bullpens to not only train our pitchers, but to offer pitching lessons for those wishing to develop their skills. The Axemen organization will be using Players Edge as it training facility for all age groups and we are excited to have this partnership.
