ACADEMY have reached a partnership that will bring the club and their coaching staff

into the Rochester community.

Great Lakes Baseball Academy, which was founded by St. Charles native Brian

lessons at The Yard on Saturday and Sunday mornings.  They will also be running

youth spring teams at the 10U-14U level that will participate in two spring tournaments

in early April.

"We're excited to partner with The Yard and look forward to the new relationships that

comes with moving into a new community. We look forward to working with some of the

local high schools and youth programs in Rochester to help grow the game of baseball

in and around the Rochester.", said Great Lakes owner Brian Bambenek.  

“My son has played for Great Lakes since he was 12 and every year we continue to be

impressed with their culture and detailed instruction Brian and his staff provide. There

are so many training facilities in the state but few do it like Great Lakes and their group,”

said Andrew Davick, Co-Owner of The Yard.
