“In terms of improving your 5 tools and knowledge of the game as a player, there is no better environment to do so than the Florida Minor League Camp. As an outfielder, my defense, arm strength, base stealing, base running, noticely improved immediately due to the techniques and experiences from Nick Belmonte. The knowledge that each and every instructor provides on a daily basis, is priceless.”,,, Reese Alexiades Pioneer League star outfielder 2022 Ogden Raptors
