[00:00:08] Welcome to the Pro-Elite Baseball Academy where greatness happens in baseball. I'll give you all the tour and everything that we do. These are some of the trophies that we won this year it is not all of them. This is just a couple this year.

[00:00:21] The answer is No. It is the alumni while people there are some people that have signed to go to college or signed but play pro baseball. Yeah. Not all of them. This is just a couple of people that we have uh one side it is a lot more this year.

[00:00:37] So this just a couple of them. Mm

[00:00:55] Hmm. Here

[00:01:18] Is a video of him showing the younger kid and a stay through the ball and to finish all the way through. And to keep his hands tied to the bat. This is something we teach all the young kids you know it's a habit that kids like to fly open and do too much.

[00:01:32] This is the young man in action out there.

[00:01:34] The lesson he just gave them the habits we were doing the work and more technique training going on.

[00:01:52] Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.

[00:02:05] This right here all right for pitching speed fundamentals to work on your craft just to get stronger. You know staying and get down the techniques that you like and just to fix some things. Little things that you do we have trying to do here. For that reason.

[00:02:30] That right there in front of the guy right here just sort of small things that he's done wrong to make his pitch and form and better. This is a couple of tweeks that he needs to fix is trying to help when a guy gets pitching down.

[00:02:48] You know say I'm working on some techniques and things that I could use when hitting pitching.

[00:02:52] Anything you need to do making quicker and a little bit more Twitchier. This is where kids just go work out on their own. Or they could set up a little training session on the coaches.

[00:03:33] Now this is the guy that runs it. I’ll let him talk to you with baseball.

[00:03:40] How are you doing. My name is Travis Coleman. I'm from New Orleans Louisiana went to St. Augustine High School the Purple Knights.

[00:03:46] Just want to talk to you guys and tell you kind of about me a little bit and my Nola story. I was in baseball New Orleans you know shaped my life you know it's your one form. Born and bred. My whole family went from my mom's and my dad's in the Lower Ninth Ward. All my family went to St. Augustine High School.

[00:04:07] My mom actually went to Xavier University. She's a graduate of Xavier Xavier Prep High School and is just talking about family. It's all about passion. On top of being tough and resilient and told me about being excellent. That's what I'm saying all. Tell me about was excessive that a goal which is a habit and that was really ingrained in me. You know it was it is a real big city on giving. It's all we're all about our people. And so like that's what I want to do in my life is to be a servant you know and so God blessed with the ability to play baseball. I was able to play at Auburn University for four years from 2004 to 2007 and then I tried to really parlay that experience into what I'm doing now. I'm now currently a scout Moscow for the Atlanta Braves and the Southern Regional scouting supervisor and I also run an academy called probably the academy where we really focus on developing and maximizing young athletes from a diverse situation. You know it's and it was the melting pot. We've played with people from all still eclectic people from all kind of backgrounds and that's what I wanted to reflect on our program.

[00:05:15] So I want to really make sure that the young African-American males who don't really have the resources in the inner city like I was got that experience of having the information and knowledge to maximize themselves as well as the players from the rural areas or the more affluent areas it didn't really matters at this point it just really helped maximize each player and give every family the opportunity to get a return on them investing in that job. And again those are things I learned from just being a native of New Orleans. That's what we're all about. We're all about giving back. We're all about you know accomplishing our mission that God put us on earth to do. And that's why I'm looking to do. No this is an honor is a blessing to be able to do those other things. It's an honor and blessing to come from New Orleans as well. So I appreciate you. Thank you for your time. And I say I look forward to sharing more information with you guys at some point but that's what I got.

[00:06:11] All right.
