We are excited to announce that we will be instituting an analytical approach to player development. Our staff has spent the late summer and early fall researching, studying and talking to leaders in the field of advanced data collection with respect to hitting and pitching development. Because of this acquired knowledge we are now investing in the latest technology to gather performance data to give our players clear and precise direction with respect to their individual training. Lots of programs talk about player development being the ultimate focus. We have always preached this as well. Now however, we are joining forward thinking MLB and College Teams that have adopted Data Driven Development Programs for their players. The data will be used to develop plans for each individual player. These plans will be a combination of what we have been teaching for years, plus some new development and mechanics ideas that have been refined with the advent of the measurable metrics that are guiding todays elite players. Below is a list of the tech we will be utilizing to aid in the development of our athletes

We are excited to get our training season started in December. Until then, our staff will continue to educate themselves to make sure they are on the cutting edge and are able to assist our players in the development and acquisition of elite baseball skills.
We are an elite travel baseball program. We have teams from 8U up through 18U. Our program is about taking dedicated athletes and teaching them the game of baseball. We pride ourselves on what we teach and how we teach it. The heart and soul of our program is our winter training. Each player will not only have over 31 hours of indoor winter team training, but will also have 5 hours of individual one on one lessons with Outlaws/C-Side's training staff. Our winter training starts in December and runs through the end of March.
Our indoor training is held at Chris Sidick’s C-Side Sports Training Facility located in North Strabane Township. C-Side is a 27,000 sq ft Baseball Taining Facility located near Canonsburg, PA. This facility is the most state of the art facility in the area.
The practice program is designed to start with basic mechanics and through repetitive drills, build on the foundation each week. Practices are designed to be energetic and fast paced. We work from the ground up with all of our teams no matter what age group. . We will start with the most basic of skills and progress through more advanced throughout the winter workouts.
As stated above, the main goal of our program is for each player to develop advanced baseball skills
We base each teams tournament schedule on what we think will both be challenging and rewarding depending on the talent level of the team. We will not load the schedule up with easy tournaments just to win trophies. There are many good tournaments local to the Pittsburgh area and in Eastern, Ohio. We also go places such as Cal Ripkens facility in Aberdeen, Marlayland, Sports at the Beach in Rehoboth, Delaware, and our 12U Teams go to Cooperstown Dreams Parks. Most of the other tournaments the we attend are typically no more than a 4 hour drive from Pittsburgh.
