NO WORKOUTS THIS WEEKEND!!! 02/27 & 02/28

Academy Members, Families and Friends,

We regret to inform you that ALL WORKOUTS  scheduled for this weekend are CANCELLED.

Due to unforeseen last-minute scheduling conflicts, lack of field availability and safety concerns, there will be NO WORKOUTS THIS WEEKEND. Our facility not only plays host to El Camino College Compton Center’s Baseball and Softball programs practices and home games but is also the spring training site for the NC Dinos, a professional baseball team in the Korean Baseball Organization, whom under agreement have access to most of our facility during specific times. Marymount California University and Bethesda University play their baseball home games at the Academy also. Prior commitments to facility access, scheduling challenges and safety concerns are the primary reasons for the limited amount of scheduled workouts for Academy members during the month of February.

Saturday 02/27, ECC Compton Center baseball plays host to Saddleback College at 1  p.m. on the Showcase Field.

Regularly scheduled Academy baseball and softball workouts are set to resume in March and more information will be sent out and posted on our blog soon.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and truly appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding.

Thank you very much!!!
