About Us

My name is Chris Merritt and I would like to introduce myself and the Scrapper Baseball Program. Over the last 30+ years I have had the opportunity to coach at the youth, high school and college levels. In the late 1990’s I was the baseball academy director at Grand Slam USA and have been running lessons, camps and clinics ever since. For the past five years I have been a trainer at the Lake Country Sports Academy in Pewaukee WI. Chances are if you have been in LCSA over that period you have seen (or heard) me at work.

I designed Scrapper Baseball with a focus on individual player development. Professionally coached, our players receive the training and repetitions necessary for improvement. Our flexible off-season program combines ongoing player evaluation with 1-on-1 training, small group repetition sessions and team-building through competition. On the field, players receive the in-game instruction needed to transition their newfound skills to live play. While our “next pitch positive” approach to coaching allows them to play with confidence and without fear of failure.

While we do consider ourselves a “developmental program”, we field competitive teams that play both league and tournament baseball. Ultimately, our mission is to get our kids ready to play at the High School level and beyond. If you are looking for a program that is truly invested in your son’s development give me a call to talk Scrapper Baseball!
