Tyler Leroy Is Making Himself Known

Tyler Leroy of Delran High School has been dominating his class since he was a little kid and I highly doubt that will change anytime soon.  He is now a junior (2021 grad year) at Delran High School where he will look to lead the offense in the 2020 season.  Leroy, who has been training at We Drop Bombs with Al Roach since he was about 12 years old, has obtained a lot of interest from division one schools all across the country.  Some of these schools include Old Dominion, University of New Orleans, West Virginia and Rutgers University.  Tyler is currently ranked #1 in the state of NJ at catcher for his class by Perfect Game.  He is known for his offensive power  and his pop time from home to second base.  We Drop Bombs wishes Tyler all the success in 2020 and hopefully in 2021 we see his name called during the MLB draft!

Development Is More Important Than Winning!

August 24, 2016

As a former player and current coach, I can’t stress enough about how development for young players is more important than winning games or being on a good team.  Yes winning is great!   I doubt any coach would try to lose or not care about winning.  We have seen players move around in South Jersey quite a bit just because winning was their priority.  Some have been on 5 teams in 5 seasons.  How does that make a player progress?  It doesn’t!!  The bottom line is, people will rarely ever look back and compliment you on winning championships or tournaments at age 11 or 12 years old.

The real reason for being a part of a club team is for development and to help prepare the player for high school and college baseball.  To make sure that gets accomplished, the first thing you need to look at when joining a club team is how the practices are operating and if the players are being taught the right way to play the game.

If you do join a program, make sure it’s not just because the team won X amount of games or tournaments last season.  Lastly, I’d like you to keep in mind, that just because your child is successful and one of the better hitters or pitchers on the team, does not mean they are doing it correctly.  For the most part, players are usually picked for teams in high school, college and of course professional baseball for their mechanics and or body language.  Bad mechanics and body language will hurt every player at some point in their career.   This is why proper training is recommended as well as playing in private clubs and organizations.   That is called Winning!!

Graham, Christopher & Roach Win 14U National Championship

July 30, 2015


“The 14U Perfect Game Classic was not only hot but it was hot.  Every team had a lot of talent and every game was neck and neck.”  said head coach Al Roach “I think with overall talent, this was the most competitive team that I have ever coached.  Every player had something valuable to offer whether it be a knuckleball to keep hitters off balance or roadrunner-like speed to take second and third base.  It was definitely difficult going down to Florida, barely knowing the players and some how strategically put line-ups together to help the team win.” said Roach.

“The Series” took place between July 16th and July 22nd in Thunderstormville, Fort Myers, Florida, where lightning delays and down pours suspended many of the games and events throughout the week.  Luckily all the games were able to be played and the teams which represented different territories and regions throughout the United States went head to head and battled it out until a National Champion was crowned.   And as the title states it was the North East that won the National Championship as they defeated the South East in the finals 4-1.   Overall the team had a 7-1 record in the series.  Other teams the North East faced were, Central, South Texas, North Texas, South East, the Mid-West and the North.

The 14U Team North East consisted of 12 players.  The roster consisted of two of the Jersey State Bombers, Ryan Graham & Matt Christopher, both of which trained at We Drop Bombs since they were seven years old.   Graham and Christopher also both won individual Game MVP Awards in the series.  Graham started two games and Christopher was used as a closer in a few opportunities.  While not on the mound, Graham played centerfield and Christopher 3rd base.
