2023 Summer
Baseball Experience

The hack shack has been a fixture in the San Antonio baseball community for over 30 yrs. And Mint Competitors exist to arm athletes with the necessary mental skills to play their best games and live their best lives.


Mint Competitors and Hack Shack have come together to offer more than your usual baseball camp. High-level fundamentals will allow your athlete to take their game to the next level, while mental skills will also allow them to survive the inevitable tough times. And on top of that all, playing our best is impossible if we are not having fun.
So, we have made all three a priority:
» High-level baseball instruction
» Mental tools and skills
» And maybe most importantly, FUN!
