About Us

Welcome to the home page of the Line Drive Academy baseball programs.  We are a group of coaches with a passion to teach the game of baseball with an "old school" respect and work ethic combined with proven skills development techniques. 


We began with the LKN Hornets travel baseball program and grew to include The Carolina Yard Dogs, a multi-team showcase organization.  in 2018 we will be introducing new teams and new brands under the Line Drive Academy banner.  The Carolina Outlaws and the Carolina Renegades will carry the showcase mantle in 2018 while the Yard Dogs will focus more on the 12u - 15u age groups.  


We believe there is still a need for ongoing player development even after you have become a "top prospect" as a high school athlete.  Our past success has earned us a relationship with Akadema Sporting Goods bringing some added value and recognition for our program.


Unlike most organizations, we schedule a minimm of (2-3) practices per week, focused on a high paced, collegiate style workout which helps to develop the player.  If you are paying thousands of dollars per year, and all you get is a revolving coach, no practices and the constant need to "pay" for lessons, then you are not getting the experience you deserve.  There is a reason why our organization has a winning record against almost every one of the major baseball factories opertating in the Carolinas.


If you want your player to develop skills which will help them excel through high school and hopefully on to college.  If you want to play in the same top tier events.  Then you need to take a look at the Carolina Yard Dogs and the Varsity Performance Group.
