The state-of-the-art, 9,700 square-foot facility (1580 S Lewis St, Anaheim, CA, 92805) is a tier-one youth baseball training in California. Along with turf areas for specialized training and five batting cages with retractable nets, ZT Prospects Academy will offer the latest technology, including HitTrax and Rapsodo for precise batter feedback, as well as Hack Attack pitching machines.
The onsite gym offers elite equipment, and one-on-one access to coaching from trainers is available in addition to daily and weekly training camps. ZT Prospects Academy has hired head trainer Jeysen Delgado to lead the program.
"Our team is thrilled with ZT Baseball’s rate of expansion, opening our first youth baseball training facility outside of Texas," said Taseer Badar, Chief Executive Officer of ZT Corporate and Founder of ZT Baseball. "It was important that ZT Prospects Academy provide an unrivaled experience to the complete student athlete. Between the athletic training capabilities and outstanding educational program, we are confident this location will be key in developing the next generation of prospects from the state of California."
The onsite homeschooling program will take a two-pronged approach:
The facility has partnered with a local charter school, where students attend class in the morning then transfer to the facility for baseball, strength and agility training in the afternoon.
Working with specific providers, the facility will offer online schooling where student athletes can choose to study at the facility with an onsite support teacher or at home via a virtual teacher. All students have 24/7 access to a tutor via ZT Prospects Academy.
"ZT Baseball continues to produce some of the highest performing youth baseball prospects in the U.S.," said Mohsin Malik, President of ZT Baseball. "ZT Prospects Academy pushes the boundary of what is possible, allowing all players to thrive and meet their highest potential."
"Most importantly, our dedicated staff truly invests in each player, ensuring they learn the game the right way while developing in to fine young men with a love for the sport," said Carlos Avila, Director of Operations at ZT Prospects Academy.
Although students are on campus this semester, the full application process for ZT Prospect Academy’s homeschool program will be launched in January 2023, with details to be announced Fall 2022.
Following the acquisition of Baseball Nation in June 2022 and opening Elite Academy in Houston in 2021, ZT Corporate and ZT Baseball is on a high performance path, as several teams won national championships, with players selected for the prestigious Perfect Game Select Baseball Festival.
