With a name like Fields, this family's favorite pastime just fits.  Bruce Fields has been around professional baseball his entire life, and his two sons -- Daniel and Aaron -- followed in his footsteps. 

"Baseball has been big part of our lives. We felt it would be something good, where we could pass knowledge along to the younger generations," says Aaron.

Aaron, Daniel and Bruce had talked for years about opening a baseball training and instruction facility. This fall the Fields family did it; opening the doors to the 'All Fields Hitting Baseball Academy".

"We just feel like it’s something that’s a plus for us, you know Aaron, my dad and myself we have played pro ball. Plus everyone on our staff has played pro ball," explains Daniel.

According to the feedback they've gotten thus far, their location in Southfield is a big draw.

"There’s a lot of young baseball players in Southfield and normally they travel deep into the suburbs to get their training," says Aaron.
