ABOUT OUR BEAR CLAW!
Native Americans use symbols & designs to represent specific ideas or cultural expressions.

PROSPECTS BASEBALL BRINGS IN NATIONAL HITTING
INSTRUCTOR THRU FEBRUARY 2016
About Charley Lau
The Lau name is synonymous with legendary hitting instruction.
Charley Jr., picked up where his father left off. After working as a minor league hitting coach, he began teaching privately to youngsters at all ages. His reputation grew rapidly when one his students was the 1st overall pick in the 1993 major league baseball draft. His name? Alex Rodriguez.
A-Rod struggled in his first year at the major league level, hitting a miserable .232. He went back to Charley Jr. to fix the flaws in his swing.
Rodriguez responded with a monster year in 1996 by winning the american league batting title with a .358 average, 36 HR's and 118 RBI. This was the highest increase in production in baseball history.

ACADEMIC AND COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIPS Posted with former players from rec ball and travel ball
I have said it for years but when winning, people focus on that aspect of a program or
philosophy rather than the mission. Last week, I was very privileged to share a photo with
former players - kids that say Coach, or Mr. Korbel. These are outstanding contributors to
community, school and athletics - and not just baseball. As for the former players first graduating class
of seniors, I know of 11 scholarships to these players for adacemic/community not to mention another 5 scholarships
based on athletics. Obviously, academics won in a landslide and I am very proud.
