Since 1994, we have helped more than 10,000 players get signed to a college team, more than 5,000 get drafted by a pro team, and more than 600 play for MLB teams. We achieve these results through a one-of-a-kind program that combines continued support and guidance before, during, and after each event a player attends with Baseball Factory.

A player’s first step with Baseball Factory is to be evaluated at a Baseball Factory National Showcase event.

Once an evaluation is complete, we place that player in the appropriate development program. Players flow through our system in the same manner that  prospects move through the levels of a Major League organization.


— Steve Tidball, Baseball Factory Parent

Baseball Factory offers a unique, hands-on system for players who want to develop to their fullest capability–from academic specialists and world-class coaches and instructors, to a marketing platform that has helped more players compete at the college baseball level than any other organization in America.
