Our baseball coaches

Since then, coach Matt has had the privilege of coaching NYC baseball for nearly a decade. His favorite memories from his coaching years include coaching for his old high school (St.John’s Prep.) as well as being featured in one of MLB’s Autism Awareness videos. He is now proud to run the league that sparked his own passion for the game!

When: Saturdays & Sundays April 2 - June 11

The Yorkville Travel baseball program provides our players with the best baseball experience around!  We believe in developing skills, teamwork, and sportsmanship.  Our goal is to put the best team possible on the field, while teaching our players to play the game the right way.  We do this through:

Coaching: All of our teams are provided with two professional coaches to ensure that we create a positive and effective learning environment for our players.

Training: Preparation is the key to success here at Yorkville.  Each team meets for a weeknight “Swing Out” session at the Yorkville Baseball Academy, as well as an outdoor team practice on the weekends.  During the winter off-season, teams will meet to train and hone their skills and maintain camaraderie.

Competition: The Eagles compete against the best competition in New York during our fall and spring seasons, and we go up against the best teams on the East Coast during our holiday weekend tournaments.
