Company History

Baseball Factory was founded in 1994 by CEO Steve Sclafani to provide a service that would advise and educate players on the college recruiting process. It is Baseball Factory's goal to provide baseball players nationwide with a one-of-a-kind concept that provides the very best in instruction, tournament competition, and college planning and promotion. Baseball Factory's vision is to guide both players and parents through the college recruiting process and to professionally train players in order to find a school that is the right fit...both academically and athletically.

Baseball Factory is widely recognized as a leader in player development and college placement in the U.S.  The unique combination of pro evaluations, fully edited player videos, professional instruction, tournaments, and ongoing guidance has created college placement success stories for thousands of players.


Team One Baseball

In 2004, Baseball Factory acquired Team One Baseball, a company renowned for organizing elite showcase events across the country. At these select nationwide events, top high school talent is showcased for over 100 college coaches and professional scouts. Through this joint association, Baseball Factory’s players not only receive quality training and guidance, but also the kind of exposure essential for success at the next level. The results are undeniable. Together Baseball Factory and Team One have helped players secure over $1 Billion in college scholarships. Over 3,000 Baseball Factory and Team One alumni have been selected in the MLB amateur draft and over 320 of these players have suited up for a Major League team.


Baseball Factory & Team One Foundation

It is the vision of Baseball Factory to professionally train players and guide families through the college recruiting process in order to find a school that is the right fit... both academically and athletically. In line with that vision, Baseball Factory has been providing assistance to at-need youth in Baltimore City for the past 14 years. Seeking to expand that support to a national level, Baseball Factory recently formed the Baseball Factory and Team One Foundation.

It is the mission of the Baseball Factory and Team One Foundation to help young players, who might otherwise be unable to pay for recruiting services, benefit from guidance and training for the college recruitment process. The Foundation hopes to offer three primary options to help disadvantaged young players through Baseball Factory programs: Instructional Days, Scholarships for Participation in Baseball Factory and Team One Programs, and Scholarships for College.
