What is the Trout Baseball Academy?

Run by former Chicago Cub and White Sox pitcher Steve Trout, the Trout Baseball Academy is a Lincoln Park-based program founded on baseball instruction for boys and girls of all ages.

Camp highlights

  • Instruction by former major league pitcher Steve Trout, who has taught baseball to more than 350 kids at Oz Park since 2011
  • Guest instruction by current and former major league players and coaches and major league scouts
  • Bunting, pitching, hitting, infielding, out fielding and base running drills
  • Stretching, exercise and agility training
  • Weekly and full-/half-day options allow parents to tailor a schedule to meet their needs

Why should I register my child for the Academy?

Your child will get a baseball experience unlike any other. As a former major league player, Steve will offer the unique insights only a professional ballplayer can.

Steve also remains connected with former and current Cubs players and managers, so surprise visits are always in store.

Steve has been a player and coach in baseball his whole life. He and his father are part of MLB history as a father/son pitching combination. Steve Trout pitched for the Cubs and the Sox and is happy to share his baseball experience with his academy.

Mission: The Trout Baseball Academy will teach baseball and character-building skills, as well as what matters most is the value of giving it your best effort on and off the field.
