The 3rd annual Practice with the Pros Event took place this past weekend, Dec 27th – 29th at Legends Way Ballfields in Clermont, FL. PFX Athletics hosted 8 Professional Softball players for three days to enhance the level of play for participants!
The following Pro Players joined us:
Alex Powers (USSSA Pride/ Florida State)

Participants worked with the pro players on all aspects of the game including mental perpetration, speed & agility, and vision training. Power hour positional breakdowns were a highlight this year! Participants spent time with the Pro players focusing on their primary/secondary positions with a 7:1 ratio. The Pros dropped tons of knowledge and capped off the event with a HR Derby!
All participants left with some serious swag! Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success! This event is truly about building relationships while learning more about the game that has brought us all together! #PracticeWithThePros
