The idea to bring an innovative baseball instructional television show to life was conceptualized on a napkin at a local restaurant in Arizona. Former major league and college coach, Jeff Forney and production guru, Jason Heinkel, pitched the idea to Fox Sports Arizona. Soon after, Baseball Player University made it’s official television debut in April of 2006. FSAZ regionally broadcasted BPU over the course of a 13 week season. Due to the popularity of the show, FSAZ expanded the distribution nationally through Direct TV, Fox College Sports, and multiple local cable affiliates. The second season of BPU aired the following year in 2007 and popularity grew even more.
We here at Baseball Player University desire to provide the necessary tools for success on and off the baseball field. We believe that success is determined by focus. Our focus is on using our experience and knowledge to empower baseball players, parents, and coaches. BPU is more than just a TV show. Our goal is to have a positive influence on the baseball community. We aim to do this, not only through the show, but also by providing equipment assistance, clinics for players and coaches, speaking engagements, and revitalizing fields for youth programs in need.
