ZINGER BATS- Official bat supplier of TCBA

TCBA has partnered with Zinger bats in order for our players to receive multiple high quality bats at an affordable price. With all of the events & practice we do with wood bats, this will help cut costs for our players into the future. We will be doing an order of bats before the summer & fall seasons.  More information to come.

PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY

TCBA likes to use the term "training" instead of "practice". TCBA will have on the field practices but our goals include the individual development of all of its players and will focus on that primarily. We put a lot of focus on hitting development- We will hit A LOT!! If you can hit there is generally more opportunities out there for you.  Pitchers will focus a lot on their throwing program. Most D1-D2 pitchers throw over 86 mph and we will try to train to do so.  This doesn't mean we dont field or focus on the team aspect. We want all of our players to be better baseball players and teammates. 

Fall League Philosophy

TCBA will NOT play in any Sunday fall leagues. Our philosophy is that our players compete harder & develop  at a higher level by playing tournaments with more on the line. Fall leagues are also far more expensive and we have the ability to use that money for a few more quality tournaments. TCBA will enter more tournaments instead of playing  DH's on Sundays at all ages as a result. This will give us more games, better competition and more development in the long run.

Playing Time

TCBA does NOT incorporate equal playing time or count innings to make sure they're equal. However, we do want playing time to be as close to equal as possible. Our goal is to set up the most quality team possible in order to have the confidence to put any of our players in any given situation. Playing time will be earned through hard work at practice/ games, trying new development techniques, and of course performance in both practice & games. The best way to get playing time is perform. There is a difference between getting a hit through a hole and going up there with a PURPOSE. TCBA will not accept complaints about playing time. Questions on how to get more playing time should be communicated from players.
