Alan Robbins, Owner

As a standout catcher at Division I Winthrop University, Alan was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2006 and played in their minor league organization for several years.

Alan's goal at 1st University is to teach players how to play the game, of baseball and life.  His biggest goal is turning North Central West Virginia in a baseball area, getting players to the next level and on to continue their careers.

“1st University is excited to partner with 643 Sports to bring this critical recruiting education seminar to our players.   I see too many quality players that don’t understand the recruiting process.  In the end, this either limits their opportunities or ends their chances of playing at the next level.  Players need a plan and 6-4-3 Sports provides a step-by-step approach to the recruiting process.  Take advantage!” 
~ Alan Robbins, former professional catcher Philadelphia Phillies and owner of 1st University
