Description

Baseball Excellence was began in 1998 with the goal of better educating youth players, parents and coaches about the true fundamentals of the game. In the (Professional) Minor Leagues winning is important but secondary to "player development". We believe that youth leagues should be approached the same way; development over winning. At Baseball Excellence we seek to instruct not only the fundamentals of the game but the "how’s and why’s" of learning to perform them correctly.
Derek Lilliquist attended Sarasota High School in Sarasota, Florida. He pitched for 3 years at the University of Georgia and pitched in the College World Series his junior year. He also hit 20 home runs that year.
He was drafted #1 (6th pick overall) by the Atlanta Braves and pitched professionally for 10 years. He feels the game has given him so much he wants to give something back and that was the motivation for Baseball Excellence.
