  • Fred Franco (All-Central)

    The blog looks great.

  • Jacob Cook

    I would die to come to one of these camps so bad. But everything looks amazing

    • Franco

      Then come on down!! It’s an incredible place and the camps I’ve been apart of in the past were awesome. On top of that, the price that we are offering is much lower than many other Dominican Camps out there.

      Hope it works out for you to join us Jacob!

    It was good meeting you last night at the ASG. Had a good time hanging out with you. I like the website. Maybe you can help my son out when the time comes in about 15 years.
