Mitch, Jason and Anthony bring a level of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to their sessions that leaves our ballplayers asking when do I get to do that again. They are learning and having fun, the perfect combination.

Mitch relates well to my son. When doing 1-1 clinics you have to connect on a good working level. My son enjoys working with AAA. I've seen a lot of positives results already and we're just getting started!

The pitching clinic was exceptionally great! I developed a good curve ball and change up just from the information that they gave me. They were very kind and cared about what they were saying to you. The guys probably know me as Pedroia ;). I would like to thank all the guys who ran the camps, as they helped me improve very much!”
