About Recruits Baseball

Recruits Baseball is one of the premier baseball clubs & indoor training facilities in the Midwest. We have teams from 6u through 18u consisting of players from the bi-state area and beyond. The teams compete on a national level, against high end competition. Our players build knowledge, gain confidence, and learn dedication through our program. We provide a top notch training facility, as well as a coaching staff with an extreme passion for teaching the game. We want high level baseball to be a reality for all, and to be able to give back to our broad community. Since our first team in 2009 we have sent 120 plus players on to play at the college level, as well as several MLB draft picks and many professional players. We push our athletes to be the best that they can be, and with each season that goes by the Recruits family and tradition continues to grow.

Mission

To increase the number of players who reach the college and professional level by providing our players national-level competition and superior coaching with an emphasis on skill development and exposure to college coaches and professional scouts.
