Attitude ... Hustle ... Determination

Louie Sluggers Baseball Club

Congratulations to Lou Frazier  

Inducted into Scottsdale Community College Hall of Fame

 The Louie Sluggers Baseball Club is a Arizona non-profit organization focused on developing the fundamental baseball skills of youth.  This is accomplished through two different avenues:

1) Fundamental skills clinics, agility training, private/group lessons.
2) Competitive Travel Teams


After 14 years in Major League Baseball, the organization's founder, Lou Frazier decided he wanted to share what he learned with today's youth. Working with players as young as 5 years old he strives to keep the "fun" in baseball while teaching the "fun"damentals that youth will need as they compete on higher and higher levels. Whether it be in his skills clinics, his baseball specific agility training or on his competitive club teams, players/parents alike, are impressed by his "can do attitude."

LESSONS, CLINICS & AGILITY

The Louie Sluggers was founded in 2010 by Lou Frazier, a 14 year veteran Major League Baseball Coach and Player. He started the organization as a way to “give back” to the game of baseball. While playing the game of baseball, itself, is important, he strongly believes that teaching youth the fundamental skills of the game is crucial.  The Louie Sluggers Baseball Club focuses on this development through a variety of different activities including individual lessons, group/team lessons, group/private agility training and skill specific mini-camps and clinics.


Agility Training

While there is no one way to train, based on his 14 years of MLB coaching and playing experience, Lou leads players through month-long agility training programs designed specifically for baseball players.  All drills and activities are translated directly to baseball skills. The goal of the training is to provide players with fundamental skills that can mean greater range for infield coverage, a faster approach to a fly or ground ball, and upper body movement that will help improve a player's swing and offensive production.  This is not a strength training
program.  Session dates, times and costs are listed on the lessons, clinics and camps page.

 


Baseball Mini-Camps and Clinics
A variety of clinics are offered during the year that focus on hitting, infield skills, outfield skills and base running. Details regarding these clinics are listed on the agility/clinic page.

 

Individual/Group Lessons
For those who desire individual training, Lou Frazier offers players the opportunity to work one-on-one with him or to bring a few friends for a group training.  For the most part, training focuses on hitting, fielding and even agility. Each training is customized to meet the individual player needs. 
Lou also offers individual agility lessons customized to meet the unique needs of a player. Parents are ALWAYS encouraged to stay so they can reinforce the skills/techniques at home.


Team Training

Lou welcomes the opportunity to work with entire teams in two hour sessions.  Working alongside the team coach, Lou designs these sessions to meet the needs of the team and its players. 

Competitive Travel Teams

The Louie Sluggers have one 14u Majors competitive travel team for the 2013-2014 seasons that plays regularly in local and regional competitive travel ball tournaments. 


Practice & Tournaments

The Sluggers typically practice 2 times a week in the Gilbert, Chandler, Ahwatukee area. During the season (Fall and Spring) the team plays in 1-2 local tournaments a month.  From time-to-time the Louie Sluggers participate in tournaments in Northern Arizona, California and Nevada with parents covering travel expenses. 

Tryouts
The Sluggers typically have a summer tryout. They also look at players interested in joining the team at different times of the year and conduct individual tryouts.  If interested email info@louiesluggers.com and request information on scheduling a tryout.

Club Dues
Players pay monthly dues on the first of each month.  Players also cover the cost of individual uniforms and pay a small start up fee to cover baseballs, etc for team use.  Expenses not covered by dues and fundraising drives are shared among players.

Hustle & Attitude
Louie Sluggers players are expected to hustle ALL the time and have a positive attitude during practice and games -- whether winning or losing. Coaches are looking to develop in players a determined attitude ... one that propels players to have a burning desire to always get better and excel.

Development
The organization focuses on development of player skills defensively and offensively.  Learning the fundamental strategies of the game is a major focus.  Lou Frazier works with the coaches and runs one practice a week focusing on defense.  All coaches are volunteer and work closely with Lou regarding team rosters and player development.
