About Us

It all starts with a dream: a dream to be a professional, a dream to be the best, a dream to be the strongest, a dream to be the fastest. At Top Level Baseball, it is our mission to show athletes the best ways to train, from weight lifting to position specific skill work. Our Meriden facility provides an elite environment for athletes of all levels and abilities. Whether you’re a novice or a professional, reach your highest potential with Top Level Baseball. 

Baseball is a game of failure. At Top Level Baseball our goal is to allow athletes to learn from their failures and become confident in executing their skills. We encourage our players to become sponges- which means to soak up all the information, evaluate what works for them specifically and begin to mold their own identities as baseball players. This will help our players reach their full potential and continue to excel in the sport they love.
