Introducing The Flyers Baseball Club
Based out of Scottsdale, Arizona, the Flyers Baseball Club will be debuting in the Fall of 2013 with a 10U team led by baseball veteran Ron Palma as the team’s manager. As part of the AzPlayBall Mustang division, the Flyers will be a 10U competitive baseball club that will carry a 10-11 man roster of ambitious ball players that are committed to learning the game of baseball.
“The Flyers Baseball Club teaches kids the proper way to play the game of baseball,” Said Manager Palma, “Teaching the mental side of the game or as we call it “the game within the game” is the Flyers Way. Hustle, hard work and respect for the game is what differentiates Flyers Baseball from the competition.”
As Palma mentions, the coaches and management of the team are driving a philosophy they refer to as “The Flyers Way,” which includes:
Joining Manager Palma to lead and coach the team are Dan DeChesaro, assuming the role of General Manager and John Siefert, who will be the president of the team. Each will work collectively to define the team’s approach based on their own expertise and experience, with Palma as the leader on the field.
“Our goal is to nurture our players into mature, strategic thinking athletes that lever their experience through our club into all aspects of their lives,” said Siefert. “We are committed to teaching our players what it means to compete on and off the field with confidence, humility and a level head.”
The team will have focused and structured practices running three times a week at 2 hours per practice where the team will learn fundamentals, strategy, mechanics and proper baseball form on a per position basis. Working on offensive and defensive scenarios like 2 strike hitting, finding the gaps, turning plays in the field and pitching for strikeouts, each player will receive group and individual attention from the coaching staff.
“This game is a mix of skill and mental toughness,” stresses DeChesaro, “ and through our program the players will fine tune the skill, while learning what it means to handle the mental side of the game.”
Joining the coaching staff will be a series of guest appearances from former Major League Baseball professionals, local baseball instructors and others that will lend their time and effort to the training and perspective that defines the Flyers Way.
