Our Mission

West Florida Baseball Academy was founded by Phil and Misty Hiatt and is run by former and current Major league baseball players. The West Florida Baseball Academy is a non-profit organization, that provides quality year round baseball instruction to the young athletes in the Pensacola and surrounding areas. Phil Hiatt, has joined forces with several local former MLB alumni to create this one of a kind academy. Each of these men bring a unique professional background to the facility with experience spanning across many professional organizations, which include but are not limited to, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Kansas City Royals,  Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros, Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Angels, Chicago Cubs, Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox. Most importantly, they all have a love and passion for the game that they want to share with up and coming players. The best coaches are life coaches, not just athletic!

About us

The West Florida Baseball Academy is dedicated to making a positive impact on today’s youth.  Our goal is to help each individual reach their highest potential both on and off the field.   As an organization, we will strive to deliver a high level of instruction, unique to the experiences and knowledge of its coaching staff.  While baseball skills and knowledge are the main focus of the academy, confidence, humility, faith and teamwork are instilled as well.

Fundamentals, discipline, dedication and respect for the game we love will lay the foundation for well-rounded baseball players, while including the most important, yet often forgotten element … FUN.
