October 13, 2014 -- Westminster, CO has a strong baseball foundation. That foundation starts at the youth level, and Westminster has above average youth programs. There are little leagues and travel teams, all showing dedication to America’s Pastime. Furthermore, Westminster has several youth facilities that can only add to the excitement for young players to get out onto the field and play baseball. The Christopher and Tepper Fields facilities are two fields worth noting in the area.
Furthermore, the Colorado Rockies play a short distance from Westminster at Coors Field. The Rockies are a strong organization in a great sports city. With such a strong foundation of youth leagues, and having a prominent Major League team, there is not a question that there is also some strong baseball being played at the high school level.
The Academy is a school with a strong baseball tradition. Most recently, the baseball program made a run at the state tournament. However, even though it is not the time for their season, the head coach has decided to give back to the area by training some of the youth players in the area.
The Academy is set to host a four week baseball camp this winter. This camp is run in conjunction with U.S. Baseball Academy and features sessions in: hitting, pitching, catching, fielding, and baserunning. Lee Hanger, head coach of The Academy, will direct the program with some of the top coaches in the area.
