Citius Draft Prospects Impress In Arizona

After working out with several other highly sought after 2014 MLB Draft prospects at a nearby Spring Training complex this morning, outfielders Marcus Wilson and Denz’l Chapman rushed over to the Camelback Ranch complex to join their Team Citius Inner City Elite teammates in the second inning. The duo of speedy outfielders who are also high school teammates, each put their wheels to use. After walking his first time up Wilson legged out an infield single by getting down the line in 4.25 seconds before taking second on a ball in the dirt and stealing third with a huge jump. The impressive home to first time was a bit slower than his usual times, partly as a result of having just worked out earlier in the morning and partly as a result of a late start getting out of the box on a check swing. Chapman’s highlight of the game was a well struck foul ball to the pullside while hitting lefty, and he also ran down a ball in the left center gap. Wilson is a high ceiling prospect who enters the spring as a top two round candidate and will be crosschecked heavily between now and June, while Chapman will draw plenty of interest as well.

After looking at many baseball programs, we sat down with Jeremy and listened to his philosophy regarding our wishes and thoughts for Dalton’s future in baseball. His philosophy to Sheryl and I, was dedication to Dalton and trust in what Hardball U will do for him and our family. From Dalton, good work ethics, listen, love of the game and most of all RESPECT for the game. After many years and roughly 11 seasons of staying loyal to Hardball U, we saw the difference between other programs and what Hardball U provided for Dalton.
Sheryl and I had the luxury of just being parents and spectators and not chasing college applications and worrying if Dalton will make it to the next level. Dalton had the privilege and pleasure of learning from some of the game’s best coaches, seeing great venues and entertaining college offers from all of the exposure he had by playing with Hardball U. His choice is proudly Texas A&M at Corpus Christi, a Division 1 College. Dalton’s talents will take him as far as he wants to go, but with Jeremy and Jerry Tyson and the Hardball U program, he was given more opportunities and exposure to be able to succeed. The Tysons and Hardball U will always be more than just a baseball program to us, they became part of our family. And for that, we will always be grateful.
We found someone that was constantly working for Dalton and his future. The road was a long one, but the journey was well worth the investment. If you are a parent looking for a great fit for your son and have any questions about this program, please feel free to contact us.

I was very impressed with scout day.  The entire event was first class.  Having it at Blossom Athletic Center and having 12-15 coaches looking at players shows Hardball U has the connections to place players on college teams. I just want to thank you for a great event!

Thank You" to Jeremy for allowing my son Matt Hilston the opportunity
to experience playing "2011" summer ball with Hardball U.
Matt has played ball for many, many years year round and has always
wanted the chance to continue to play at the next level.
Jeremy was very successful in getting Matt offers from several
D1, D2 & JUCO programs. Matt's decision to play and go the
JUCO route was the right decision, one he does not regret.
Jeremy was always enthusiastic and worked hard to get Matt's name
out there and get him the best opportunity possible.
If you are looking for an organization to help your son move on to the next level,
I do believe Hardball U is one of the
best programs in the San Antonio area.
Once again, Thanks to Jeremy and the Hardball U staff! ~ Liz Hilston, Mother of Matthew R. Hilston "2011" SVHS

Such diversity in backgrounds assures that players for Hardball U receive not only excellent instruction but also benefit from a network of contacts as they move from high school into the college arena.

At the heart of the Hardball University philosophy is the belief that every player can, with proper guidance and leadership, meet his goals.
