We Are All About Instruction
For anyone that hasn't experienced the B2B approach, get ready for some instruction.
From the beginning, we have been a leader in the country for baseball instruction. Our founder, Marc Shoenfelt, travels the country every year speaking about the fundamentals and getting players better.
His methods and approach has been called the best in the nation by many.
What makes the B2B approach so different? Marc taught for 12 years in the elementary classroom and has his Masters Degree in Education. There aren't that many instructors out there with that kind of teaching background. Combine that with a vast baseball background, and you have a complete instructor who knows how to reach your player. It is not about how much you know, but how much your player learns.
Marc has written a book with a DVD companion, writes internationally in two publications, and has appeared on numerous talk shows as an expert on baseball instruction. From FOX Sports Radio to Comcast Sportsnet with Michael Barkann, Marc has stressed the importance of safety and fundamentals in baseball.
With that kind of background, the Academy has an instructive approach in every aspect. Don't be suprised if Marc walks around and gives hitter free tips, and don't be afraid to pull him aside and take a look at your player.
The private instructors doing lessons in the facility are contractors hired by B2B Baseball & Softball Academy and in no way reflect the theories and philosophies of B2B. In order to to receive B2B instruction, schedule Marc for a lesson or see him for consultation.

The Boot Camp is directed by Nicki Starry:
As a collegiate coach at York College of Pennsylvania in her first year at the helm of the program, the Spartans had a school-record eight players earn All-CAC accolades including Rookie-of-the-Year Hannah Hugel. York also had a trio of players earn NFCA All-Atlantic Region honors. In year two, seven Spartans earned All-CAC accolades including senior Karen Carr and freshman Emma Erbig earning first-team accolades
Starry brought a wealth of experience to the Spartan program as she was an accomplished Division I player at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and, prior to coming to YCP, had been guiding a number of successful youth programs in San Diego, California.
A catcher in college, Starry has an in-depth understanding of all aspects of collegiate softball. She earned NFCA All-Mideast Region accolades in 2001 as two of her Badger teams earned trips to the Division I NCAA Tournament. Two of her Wisconsin teams attained top 25 rankings as they compiled 98 wins over the course of Starry’s three-year Badger career. She was a double-major at Wisconsin as she earned degrees in Child and Family Studies and Consumer Communications.
Starry has served as the President and former head coach of San Diego’s Academy Travel Softball Club. The position allowed her extensive coaching experience as well as a high level of administrative responsibilities with the program. As coach, Starry led a number of teams to top five finishes at ASA national tournaments in addition to two impressive regional tournament finishes.
A survivor. A player. A coach. A mentor.
These four things are what York College first-year softball head coach Nicki Starry has grown from to become what she is today.As a player, Starry made tremendous strides in the game of softball. From turning around a struggling high school program to playing at the top of the Division I game, she has been there.“Softball is one of those things where you step across the white lines and the game makes sense, there are the rules of the game, and the way it’s played that just makes sense,” Starry said. “When you go out there with eight other players with just heart, drive and the sweat that you leave out there, the rest of the world just stops. Nobody can take that away from you.”
In high school, Starry was a part of a group of girls from Rancho Bernardo High School in San Diego, Calif. that was nominated and appeared on the “Team Cheerios” box when they teamed with the American Cancer Society.
