The overused phrase in baseball practice, "Just throw it at the glove," isn't motivating. Why throw at brown leather when you can motivate kids with brightly colored APEX predator images like a bear to make throwing and pitching fun for kids.

Kirby Holmes, owner of Ascend Athletics, says, "As a dad coaching my boys how to throw a baseball I was always looking for techniques to help them improve. It wasn't until my youngest son was in his first year of kid pitch baseball that I finally got the idea for Baseball Glove Targets. I was inspired by the story of David and Goliath to create a motivating coaching tool to help him throw faster and more accurate. David was a shepherd and learned how to defend his sheep by throwing rocks at predators. He used his throwing training to kill a lion, a bear, and eventually even the giant Goliath. Using David as an example of how kids can develop better throwing skills I created Baseball Glove Targets. My son was fired up at the idea of throwing baseballs at a raging bear that was attacking him. The simple to use glove target can be used in the backyard or on the practice field to help parents and coaches improve their player's performance at game time."
The overused phrase in baseball practice, "Just throw it at the glove," isn't motivating. Why throw at brown leather when you can motivate kids with brightly colored APEX predator images like a bear to make throwing and pitching fun for kids. Create games with the players by having them "Kill the Bear" as they pitch. It becomes a story that kids can relate to and motivates them to be more intentional with their throws. Using a Baseball Glove Target gives kids the motivation to attack with their throws, just like David did in the story of the bear, lion and giant. Coaches now have a great practical tool to help their developing players throw more accurately and with greater velocity. Players will be ready for the game when their throws really matter.
The targets are made out of the highest grade anti-microbial four-way flex sport spandex. Our flex-fit system allows the materials to stretch over any glove size and shape. The fabric target stretches tight across any glove while remaining flexible enough to catch any pitch or throw.
Ascend Athletics, the parent company of http://www.BaseballGloveTargets.com, makes all of the targets in the USA. They are a family owned business located in Austin, Texas. The hope of their company and products are to serve developing youth baseball players and create places of community where everyone can enjoy life together.
