Florida Baseball Academy and the North Florida Rivercats are proud to announce that we are coming together to create an Elite Baseball organization in North Florida for Young men that concentrate on the Next Level of Baseball and in addition the academics and the importance of them to succeed at many programs. College is not only Baseball but it is Academics too, which plays a roll if a player ever sees the field. Florida Baseball Academy strives to teach our young men the importance of both. Below are our tryout dates and information:

The coaches that have come together are the most knowledgeable in the area and have one goal in mind, let each player develop to become the best person and player they have the potential in being. We are all former MLB Players / NCAA Players and High School Coaches. We even have a Professional Pitching Scout on hand and they are dedicated only to seeing the kids reach the next level or prepare them for the next step in their life as quality young men.
Also, if you know a player/and family that may be a good fit for the program, please forward on this have them contact me directly. I will also keep you posted with other news that may be coming down the pipeline.
