Based on the unique teaching models developed buy our founder, Tony Abbatine,  FROZEN ROPES is not just a facility, it’s a philosophy.


There are not many sources in the baseball and softball world that can include five Major League Baseball teams, dozens of college baseball and softball programs and Team USA as clients.


From our industry leading Visual Mechanics, Rock Fit Strength Training, to our Weapons of Mental Dominance workshops, our teaching goes beyond the play of the game.


Repeating clichés has no place at Frozen Ropes. Our staff is challenged to go beyond their playing experiences and how “they did it”.
