‘IF IT AIN’T BROKE … BREAK IT!’

approach of business development and champion a new approach, one which emphasized continual re-engineering of current systems and processes. At the Texas Baseball Ranch® we have taken Kriegel at his word and are constantly retooling, polishing, innovating, rebuilding, and reengineering our systems and processes … and equipment … and tools and technology. We refuse to stand still or stand pat. We don’t wait until something is broken to enhance it, improve it, or in some cases, tear it up ourselves and begin again. This is one of the many things that makes the Texas Baseball Ranch® special. We have no fear of getting it wrong. We know progress can almost never take place without moving past our comfort zone.

One thing is certain: At the Texas Baseball Ranch® we will not sit on our laurels or on our hands. This summer is no different.

Here are some of the physical changes at the Ranch in preparation for the summer. We’ve updated the six pack, torn down the old medicine ball wall, and built a new one (in the shade!). On the technology front, we’ve added TrackMan radar for all the pitch data, becoming the first member of their Ambassador Club. We will also have Sparta individualized strength workouts coming right to players via their phones this summer. With the state of Texas opening back up following COVID-19 and with all travel restrictions lifted, we’re excited to get back to baseball, and we’re sure you are as well.

We look forward to seeing you at the Ranch this summer!
