traction Canes baseball academy

The Traction Canes Baseball Academy is designed to develop youth players at the competitive level - AA, AAA and Major. Each player in our program is evaluated and placed at the best level of play for their development. It is our mission to develop young ballplayers of all skill levels and we are excited to provide the best resources in the business to achieve these goals.


*Umpire Fees: Beginning in Fall 2019, Louisiana USSSA will move to the “pay at the plate” model for umpire fees. Team tournament entry fees will be reduced but each team will be required to pay 1 umpire per game with cash before the start of the game. To accommodate this change, each team will need a team treasurer to manage its own checking account funded by the families on the team. Since it is impossible to predict how many games a team will play in a weekend, Traction will not participate in the administration of the team checking accounts.
