BV BASEBALL ALUM BRENDAN MCKAY TAKEN 4TH PICK OF ROUND 1 OF THE MLB DRAFT

Hello Everybody,
I wanted to send you all an email about Brendan McKay, who was drafted with the 4th pick of the 1st round of the MLB draft last night by the Tampa Bay Rays.  Brendan was the first college player taken; as the first three picks where high school players. To hear Brendan’s name last night being called in this draft was a very emotional and proud moment for me as his old coach.  Brendan was a BV lifer, and played with our program for ALL the possible years we offered, during his 7 years in our organization, BK was unstoppable at the plate and on the mound.  He has become quite famous for his on field stone face and ice in his veins demeanor, and that has always been there from the time he started playing with us at age 9.  He was always a great kid – a quiet kid that just showed up and gave you everything he had every game.  Through my years of running BV, I have coached against some of the best in the big leagues today, we yearly competed against Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Kris Bryant, Buster Posey, and the list goes on and on – all these players dominated the game all the way through.  Brendan growing up was not as big as these kids, he was tall and lean, but I have to tell you that he dominated the game just like the greats of the big leaguers today.  In his time in a BV uniform, I can’t remember a time he looked outmatched as a hitter, and I can’t remember a time where he was really knocked around on the mound.  He has worked very hard to build his frame, and he is a feared left handed hitter, as he was drafted as a first basemen.  None of the accomplishments and awards BK has won are a surprise to me – he has always been at the top of the level he was playing – what he has done in his college career is the same thing he did in his high school career and the same thing he did in his travel baseball career and that is in a simple word DOMINATE!!  It was an honor to coach this young man for the years that I was able to, I am so proud of his work ethic and what he has worked hard to accomplish, and I am very happy for his family (his dad Bruce still stops down at West Mayfield from time to time to say hi and watch a BV practice)!!  I’m not sure what the future will hold for this young man, but I know the Rays got a big time player, with a big league demeanor, and a fantastic person!!  Hats off to Brendan McKay!!
Thanks,
Brian

2017 BV BASEBALL OWNS THE BATTLE ON THE BORDER TOURNAMENT (JUNE 9 – 11)

For the past 12 years, the Triple Crown Sports organization has hosted the “Battle on the Border” Tournament in Youngstown, OH.  When this tournament started, it was basically just teams from Western PA and Northeast Ohio that attended.  The tournament was a big draw, but mostly local teams showed up to play.  Through the years, this event grew in name, and teams from further and wider started to attend.  It is not uncommon to see teams from Eastern PA, Michigan, and Cincinnati in this event.  In 2017, the BV BASEBALL CLUB did something that has never been done in this big local event.  In the 10 age groups of tournaments offered, the BV BASEBALL CLUB won 9 of those ages!!  We would like to say a special congratulations to the following teams that were champions of the 2017 “Battle on the Border” Tournament:

BV BASEBALL 2017 — BIG NEWS!!!

Hello Everybody,
I wanted to send you all an email about an important move for the BV BASEBALL CLUB starting in the fall of this season.  We are merging with the Sports Zone Express.  I have been working with the Sports Zone staff on this merger for the past few months.  I feel that the BV BASEBALL CLUB fields some of the best baseball teams in the country.  The Sports Zone Express is a local program with some wonderful trainers and coaches.  They compete in local tournaments, and have pretty good success doing so.  What does it all mean?  Let me break this down into a baseball season, and as you read you will find the only real change is that we have a larger staff of qualified instructors and coaches:
WINTER TRAINING:
 
**We will still use Pittsburgh facilities as we have done – as well as HHH.  Nothing here is changing — I am working with Greentree now to set up our slots there; as well as looking at some other options — I like the idea of keeping kids close to home (especially during the week) with school in the winter.  This idea has worked very well for me for the past 21 years, and we will continue to do it that way.
**One area that is really changing here is the number of guys and instructors we can have at our winter practices.  We will continue to work hard to develop players at the highest level and along with myself and the current BV staff, we will have the Sports Zone staff as well!!  We will have all of our stations with qualified men in each station.  Click on this link to see the Sports Zone instructors:  http://www.beavercountysportszone.com/staff
SPRING/SUMMER SEASON:
 
**We will continue to play the toughest and the most elite schedule possible for our BV teams that can play at that level.  The Super NITs, Perfect Game and USA events are all on our radar for any teams capable of competing at that level.  The BV RED teams and some of our BV BLACK teams play that type of schedule now, and they will continue to play that type of schedule moving forward.
**The excitement here is the ability to have such quality in our high school ages.  We look forward to helping our athletes reach their goals of playing college baseball.  We have a current Orioles scout as a member of our team (Rich Pasquale), and we have a few current MLB guys as well to help in the winter training.  The staff has a number of ex division I guys that played in the minors/majors to help guide our older athletes on the right path.  Guys that understand the recruiting process and will help our players be seen by the right people.  Patrick Cutshall will be in charge of these high school age teams.  He has done an excellent job in recent years, and being able to put this all together makes a lot of sense.  Pat has done an outstanding job of communicating with colleges, and with him in charge we will see to it that our player’s get in front of the right people.
**I will be in charge of a lot of things kind of like I do now.  The day to day operation of this program will fall on Myself and Patrick.  I will be handling the scheduling and all parts of the pre-high school ages.  Patrick will be handling the day to day operations within our high school ages.  We will work as one unit – with the coaches and instructors helping ALL ages.  Having this type of staff makes my life (now 42 years old) a lot easier.  I am a very intense about the game, it has become quite a passion for me – those that I coach can see that, but to have a staff around me that can help coach these teams, and be part of our practice instruction will be so valuable for all our players.
COST:
 
**With all the new instructors and coaches that are involved — the 2017 baseball season will not cost one more penny.  The 2016 budgets will be duplicated in each age group.
CLOSING COMMENTS:
**This program has always been one of excellence.  Our teams are nationally recognized and respected.  I have been so lucky through the last 21 years to field some of the best teams in the country.  I have had the ability to train and work with some of the best athletes to EVER come out of Western PA.  This merger, for me, extends the dream that I have been living for the past 21 years.  To field the best teams, to give great instruction and prepare players for the highest level possible, and seek out and play the best competition for each team!!  I love the staff that I currently have, and I am now proud to be part of a larger staff of guys that are “baseball guys” and share that passion that I have.
In closing, this is a great time to be a part of this program!!  We are building things to be bigger and better than they have ever been!!  I greatly look forward to this merger, and how BV EXPRESS can take the world by storm!!
If you have any questions please feel free to send me an email or give me a call!!
As Always,
Thanks for all you do,
Brian
