The Motor City Baseball Club (MCBC) Hit Dogs "Little Dogs" program for 5-8 year old’s is a development training program that will focus on the fundamentals of baseball at a young age. These young boys will learn proper hitting mechanics, fielding mechanics, base running, and pitching. The boys will have a lot of fun while learning the game at the same time. Training will be two days a week through the end of the session.  Also, our indoor infield, at our facility, provides us the opportunity to play scrimmages indoor during the winter as well as ample area to do many various types of baseball training drills. Select players from this program will be invited to play for our 8U MCBC team for the following 8U season. We have a proven track record at MCBC- we train to develop.

The training will be done by our top Motor City Hit Dogs head coaches and trainers: Coach & Director of the MCHD,Tony Leonard, the founder of the Little Dog program, is one of the best coaches around at teaching the game. Coach Leonard 's teams have been ranked nationally year in and year out by USSSA power rankings.

Scott is known for his energy & passion when it comes to coaching. His attention to details on the mechanics of the game are far superior from others.  Tony & Scott Leonard will be assisted by Devon Conklin, who is the current head JV baseball coach at Waterford Mott High School (district champions and regional finalists in 2018) as well as the current 15U MCBC Hit Dog head coach as well as our individual and team trainer when not with his 15U team.

Program Testimonials

Matt Sandles to Mcbc Hitdogs

This is the BEST travel baseball program in Michigan, bar none. When you look at their player development, list of alumni, and success both on and off the field, this is a program parents should be looking at. I am very, very impressed with what the Hit Dogs have to offer and have accomplished.
