Splinters Baseball Philosophy

The methods and techniques Splinters Baseball teaches have been derived from our instructor’s experiences, as players and coaches, from little league level through the college level. Splinters Baseball also seeks out the best baseball minds from across the country to enhance and remain up to date on the techniques we teach. Learn more.

I have two boys who have had the privilege of taking lessons from both Josh and Edd Eaton of Splinters Baseball. Both men have a vast knowledge and love of the game. This enables them to teach kids with kindness, patience and determination to advance their baseball skills. Pitching, batting, fielding, catching, and running bases they can teach it all. Always adding to their repertoire of skills and drills keeps the kids focused. They have been great for my kids and would recommend them to anyone who wants to improve their baseball skills.
Go Splinters!
