Bigler Big Time Baseball Academy

Our mission is to attract the serious youth/high school baseball players with the opportunity to develop and fine-tune their baseball skills to an advanced level by utilizing the highest caliber coaching staff in the region, made up of former MLB professional and collegiate players and coaches.  We will provide a year-round training program to create that opportunity.  We will utilize the unparalleled coaching staff to challenge, develop and transform the young athletes’ passion, desire and athletic skills to reach their full potential, to achieve their ultimate goals and aspirations as a player on the field and as a leader off the field.

Our “travel teams” will compete in tournaments throughout the upper Midwest that will challenge players and expose their talent to top competition as well as college coaches and scouts.

Tryout Information

At BT we recognize that anyone can have a bad day.  Therefore, we run a two day tryout so that we can get the best possible look at each athlete.  We run several drills, do some testing and give the guys some instruction the first half of each day and then run a scrimmage to end each day.  The cost simply covers the expenses incurred for the tryout. For more information about our program and what type of players we’re looking for, click here.  If you have an injury situation or cannot make the try-out, give KJ Bigler a call at 414-303-7064.
