West Norriton, PA., Athletes Academy Training Facility(AATF)/Athletes Academy Canes are proud to announce a merger with Miller Baseball (M24). Athletes Academy Canes will continue competing in youth tournaments in the 9U to 14U age groups, while the “M24 Canes” will serve as collegiate showcase team approach for ages 15U to 18U.
Athletes Academy Canes, based just 20 miles west of center city Philadelphia, have experienced tremendous growth and success early in their existence with their youth teams. A partnership with Miller Baseball is fitting given M24’s track record with the older players.
