  • Cutting Edge! Charleston Baseball Academy provides the most advanced stage in the development of baseball to both of my boys. The entire CBA staff has provided years of leadership, guidance, skilled training, confidence and inspiration to our children and generations to come. We can not wait for Shipyard Park to make our experience even better!

  • I was fortunate at the age of 14 to meet Stan and the rest of his staff and begin working with them. They have proved to be a huge part of my development. I am really excited to see their experience as coaches paired with the incredible new facility. It will be a place where baseball players in the Charleston area can develop and work towards playing at the next level.

  • Our family has the highest level of respect for the Charleston Baseball Academy and the commitment they make to develop not only baseball players but exceptional young men. Stan is one of the most outstanding mentors that a young ball player and a players family could be around. The CBA staff promotes a family first setting with significance placed on working hard on and off the field in an enjoyable environment

  • I look forward to Shipyard Park and what it will bring to Charleston for the game of baseball.  I know firsthand what Stan and his staff does in teaching young players the correct way to play the game and couldn’t be happier to have this quality of a facility in my hometown.

  • Carolina Prospects is one of the best organizations in the south east. Stan and his staff do a good job of developing players on and off the field. With the addition of the Shipyard park this organization is second to none.
