Since November 1st the Lake County Glory has been developing their player skills and conditioning.
In November and December the team did fielding and defensive work at Pro Player Sports in McHenry. Players worked on catching, and throwing from different positions and transitioning thru double plays.
The players also worked thru various hitting stations designed to improve their ability to hit pitches in-middle and on the outside part of the strike zone.
Since January 5th the team has worked at The Ball Park in Mt Prospect. At this facility the playerd work on training their eves to see pitched balls deeper into the strike zone.
In addition, the team works on hitting live and machine pitching, front and back arm hitting and various skill development stations.
In both locations the team has also worked on player conditioning with the staff from Blackline Athletic. Each week the Blackline staff puts the Glory players thru a variety of drills to improve their speed agility and overall conditioning.
Each year, Lake County Fastpitch teams play a very competitive schedule of local, regional and national , ASA and PGF qualifying tournaments.
