Welcome to Salem Diamond Sports

Our goal is to teach the physical and mental aspects of baseball and softball by building skills in an easy-to-follow progression, explaining the what and why of each fundamental, mechanic, and strategy used by the best players. Just as important is the how. Emphasis is placed on teaching the athlete how skills can be mastered in the shortest amount of time. Confidence is dramatically raised when the student learns how they can become their own coach.
