Established as Pinkman Pitching in 1992, the Pinkman Academy is now one of the nation’s leading baseball instructional facilities for hitting, pitching, and catching.


The Pinkman Academy offers a full array of softball pitching, hitting, and defensive instruction. We work with softball athletes from elementary to collegiate to adult.

All the coaches are knowledgeable, professional, and patient. As a result of their lessons, my boys were hitting and pitching harder and faster and they made their respective travel and all-star teams!”

“Pinkman’s has been the absolute game changer for our daughter. They stuck with her through her struggles and gave her the confidence and skills she needed to come out on top. The Pinkman team is skilled at what they do and make you feel like family!”

Matt (Germanowski) and Jeff (Pinkman) at the Pinkman Academy have been fantastic. Their attention to details makes them successful in what they do. Highly recommend these guys for your son or daughter. Thanks PA.”
