For parents, it was the culmination of countless hours spent bringing their children back and forth to ball fields, supporting their athletic endeavors emotionally and financially, and cheering them on from chilly or sun-baked bleachers, in the hope that their communal sacrifices would pay off in the form of college scholarships. Some of these athletes aspire to play professional ball.
To date, Zoned Sports Academy student-athletes have earned over $16 million in college scholarships. This year's class came from Bridgewater-
"It is our ultimate goal to see our kids play collegiately, and we take pride in seeing so many of our student-athletes enter the next chapter in their academic and athletic careers. Some of these kids have trained with us for over 10 years and we are so proud to see them move on," said Zoned Sports Academy owner Duke Baxter, himself a former professional baseball player.
Each year, thousands of new faces walk through the doors at Zoned Sports Academy with the hopes of playing baseball or softball in college and making it to the big leagues. Staff embark on the journey alongside these young athletes in hopes of developing them both on and off the field, and helping them find the right academic fit.
During the Signing Day ceremony, each student walked the "turf carpet" and received a "Certificate of Excellence" to recognize the hard work and effort that brought them to that moment, to the applause of family.
