Crank baseball was created to offer aspiring college baseball players the chance to showcase their abilities in front of the top college coaches in the northeast. Crank camps allow players to showcase all areas of their game throughout the day long event. As a former college player and coach, camp director Matt Mayo can provide valuable feedback to players trying to get to the next level. Crank provides the same opportunities of the area’s most elite showcase camps, at a fraction of the price. There is no reason to pay $1,000’s of dollars to showcase your baseball skills when Crank baseball can offer the same experience for just $295.
