Chris Shaw Class of 2012
Prior to playing for Baseball U, I was a relatively lowly recruited player coming out of a public high school in the greater Boston area. I had zero offers from any division 1 schools and the interest from the few schools that I had spoken with was minimal to that point. Wellsy saw something in me that others honestly hadn't at that point in time and gave me the opportunity to come play for Baseball U. Little did I know at the time that playing for Coach Wells would be the most important decision I had made in my baseball career to that day. Playing for Baseball U that summer not only opened the door for my career Baseball-wise, but It also allowed me to form some of the best friendships that I will have throughout my life. I learned more and had more fun in that summer with baseball U than I had in my entire Baseball career leading up to it. It truly was an experience that I wouldn't trade for the world. I owe a ton for where I am today to John wells (Wellsy) and the rest of the coaches with Baseball U.

Alex Kirrilloff - Class of 2016
Baseball U offered me a spot on their high school travel team when I was a sophomore. After playing with them for 3 years, I truly felt that I couldn't have made a better choice picking a travel team. Especially being from the Northeast they offered me maximum exposure and opportunity all over the country. I can honestly say they have helped me immensely, getting to the point where I am today.

Father of Justin Dunn Class of 2013
In my opinion Baseball U is the premier elite travel baseball organization in the Northeast. John Wells and his team of coaches truly got my son (Justin Dunn NY Mets 1st Round Pick) prepared to play baseball at the next level. He and his organization are well respected by both the college coaches and professional scouts. His opinion matters. They are many imitators out there but if you truly want to play with and against the best in the country and you live in the Northeast, Baseball U is the organization to join.

Coach Wells and Baseball U is highly respected amongst the college ranks of baseball. He provides your son the opportunity to showcase your sons talent in top tournaments throughout the United States. Coach Wells dedication to our son was shown to us when after he had graduated from Baseball U and recently from the United States Naval Academy, he still had the time to reach out and keep in contact. That, is a very professional move!!

Father of Will and Justin Trochiano Class of 2017 and 2014
Nationally ranked Baseball U provided the platform to help my two sons make it into Division I baseball programs. In addition to the extensive relationships he has with college coaches across the country, John Wells and his staff provided an honest evaluation, along with proper training and coaching to prepare them to compete on a higher level. When the opportunity was there, they were ready. All the success as a high school player means nothing without the exposure of playing for a nationally recognized regional team such as Baseball U.

Coach Wells runs one of the best travel baseball programs in the country. Baseball U is a high class organization who strives to reach ballplayers dreams of playing college baseball. You will be sure to find Baseball U at all the top showcase/tournaments. Coach Wells and his coaching staff are as good as it gets. They care about each individual apart of the organization, whether it is knowing them on a personable level or focusing on fully deveoping one as a player. There is not another organization I would of like to play for.

Father of Nolan Long Class of 2013
In the winter of 2011, my son Nolan Long was virtually and unknown pitcher from Southeastern Connecticut. By chance a Baseball U coach saw him at an open workout. He was invited to play with Baseball U CT and eventually that summer moved on to the Baseball U Prospect team, where in 2011 the Prospect team came in 3rd at the WWBA 17U National Championships in Georgia. My son is in his second full season with the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and I believe Baseball U was a huge turning point in his career to get to college and beyond.

Parents of Jeff Belge Class of 2016
We would like to thank John Wells and his local Baseball U NY affiliate (Baseball Warehouse) for helping our son develop as an athlete and a person. Baseball U helped to get him national exposure that led to a scholarship at St. John's University and a draft selection by the Boston Red Sox. I would recommend Baseball U to any athlete or parent looking for a program to help develop your child into a professional and the national exposure they can provide. John is knowledgeable and well connected in the baseball community.

Coach Wells knows his stuff. He gives you opportunities and the exposure you need. I would recommend Baseball U if you are serious about baseball and want to get to the next level. I was fortunate enough to have played with Baseball U since my freshman year and learned a lot about the game. You will play some of the top level teams all around the country. Baseball U is the real deal for anyone trying to make it to the next level!
