Oranjestad, Aruba- The start of 2021 has been an exciting year for 297 Baseball Academy!
Jorgell Diaz and Deven Vrolijk, have recently committed to Southern Maine Community College. Both athletes worked closely with us over the years to make their dreams come true. They will be departing for college in the late summer/fall of 2022 to begin their careers. They will be playing under Coach Dave Walsh.
College Preparatory Workouts
January was a great month for baseball in Aruba but it wont stop there. 297 Baseball Academy is now offering college preparatory workouts every month leading up until Aruba Baseball Weekend. Our first session will start at the beginning of February. For players who want to play and compete at the next level we highly encourage these workouts. Not only do they improve your physical skills as athletes but they also teach the importance of time management, getting enough rest, and slowly assimilating themselves to the college lifestyle.

Recruiting Consulting & Meetings
As many players have already taken advantage, we will be offering college recruiting meetings in the month of March. These meetings will give players the opportunity to talk with the 297 baseball and academic staff to reach their goals of playing at the next level. Meetings must be scheduled in advance via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
