Kyle Fedorka’s baseball dream started just like every other young player, as a young boy he wanted to be a Major Leaguer. Having played in and on the highest level of travel/federation baseball teams in his area and through the help of his dad, who was a coach, he fell in love with the game and was as prepared as possible heading into high school.
The preparation paid off as Kyle enjoyed a four year varsity career as a baseball player at Lakeland High School, a Class A high school in the metro Detroit area. His accomplishments in high school baseball include four year starter as pitcher and shortstop, two year captain, career batting average of over .400, top ten all time in hits, runs, innings pitched, strike outs and wins. Kyle also earned numerous all area, all league and all district awards throughout his time culminating in being named Player of the Year for both the league and district his senior year. Kyle was also named All-State honorable mention and selected to attend the prestigious Baseball Factory All American camp.
Kyle’s efforts paid off as he elected to sign during the early period during his senior year to play baseball at Madonna University. Despite potential offers from “larger” schools, Madonna recruited Kyle offering the opportunity for him to both pitch and hit at the collegiate level. It was a move that paid off for both Madonna and Kyle as during his time, he saw time on the mound all four years and started at shortstop for three. During his time at Madonna, they enjoyed national success being ranked as high as 17th in the country his senior season. He was named all – WHAC on multiple occasions, All Region, All American NAIA and still holds the record as the all-time saves leader as well as ranking in the top ten for both triples and assists showing all around versatility during his time as a Crusader.
Upon completion of his playing career, Kyle’s passion for baseball was still burning but his dreams had changed. His desire to help younger baseball players improve at the game he loves became his priority. Despite coaching at Madonna as well as numerous high level travel teams and at the high school level, it was Kyle’s desire to reach a larger audience. Enter the evolution of High Performance Training (HP). Opening to the public in October of 2009, HP made its debut in a small, 2,800 sq. ft. corner of the building where the current HP resides. It consisted of two hitting tunnels on carpet, a desk and staff of one – Kyle. Since 2009, HP has moved once, expanded twice and is now 6,500 sq. ft. with four hitting tunnels on turf, two dirt pitching mounds, multiple other hitting stations as well as a fully loaded strength and conditioning area. Additionally, HP also now has a waiting area for parents, a pro shop and a staff of more than ten to help meet the needs of every athlete that comes through the door at HP.
The facility has expanded and the growth has been continuous but the focus at HP has remained the same – helping players improve on their skills. Upon reflection of his business and the fact that his “job” is to help others reach their goals and dreams that were once his own, one may say it is indeed, a dream realized.
