Deerfield Baseball travels to Florida to train at IMG Academy in Bradenton each March. IMG provides a premier training experience in a picturesque setting. Athletes and coaches reside on-site and enjoy most of their meals in IMG’s expansive dining hall, which is incredibly convenient. IMG is an all-inclusive training venue, featuring several batting cages, an extensive fitness and weight-training center, and ample turf fields for practices and games. Our baseball team enjoys their time on the IMG campus, and truly makes the most of their week of training.
