Welcome to OBA

HatOstingers Baseball Academy (OBA) is located in Lithia, just Southeast of Tampa, FL, and was founded by former MLB pitcher, Jim Osting, in 2008.  It was established to provide world class baseball instruction in the Central Florida area.  OBA has quickly made a name for itself with professionally experienced instructors, quality facilities, and personalized instruction.  Our instructors all have former professional playing time and will individualize each lesson to each player’s unique strengths and weaknesses.

OBA offers individual lessons, team facility rentals/lessons, and high yieldcamps all year round.   The OBA facility offers both indoor and outdoor cages, an outdoor infield, and pitching mounds for bullpen work. At OBA, players should expect a balance of instruction on topics ranging from pitching, stretching, throwing, hitting, fielding mechanics, mental aspects of the game as well as preventative injury training.  If you are between the ages of 7 and 20 and are serious about the game of baseball or softball, this is your chance to take your game to the next level!

Beyond individual lessons, OBA frequently offers player position workshops with visiting professional players, conditioning/ strengthening programs for cross training, and elite travel ball teams for those players ready for a more advanced level of competition.  OBA alumni have received scholarships and have gone on to play college baseball in all divisions.

OBA supports Fishhawk Baseball recreation and travel ball leagues. Jim Osting is Director of Travel Baseball Operations.
