Meet Austin Wasserman (right) and Bobby Tewksbary (left), co-founders of A.B. ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT in Nashua, NH. AB started in 2008 to offer high-level athletic development to baseball players. Since then, A.B. has trained hundreds of baseball and softball players as well as numerous athletes in different sports to create better opportunities to student-athletes seeking to play high school, collegiate or professional sports. Austin and Bobby are both former Division I and professional baseball players who grew up in New Hampshire. Their goals are to provide athletes with every aspect of training involved in the sport. This is what they would do if they could begin their careers over again.
The AB staff creates a culture of hard work, discipline and respect. AB promotes the "A.C.E." mantra used by UConn Baseball Coach Jim Penders, where athletes are expected to control the Attitude, Concentration and Effort at each workout. Athletes at AB are like-minded and push each other to help reach their goals.
A.B. Athletic Development works with athletes of all ages and abilities. We have worked with current MLB players, 7 year olds and everybody in between. What separates AB from other "facilities" is that we aren't a facility at all. We treat our facility as a tool to help our players improve. Our model is based on instructing and teaching players, it isn't just a place to rent a cage to take swings. The only requirements for athletes interested in AB are that you work hard, show a desire to learn and be accountable for your development. If you want to get better, we want to work with you!
