ELO

Welcome to the North Shore Baseball Academy.  For the past 13 years, we are proud to be the area’s premier academy for private baseball and softball instruction, as well as full time travel teams.  Our exclusive professional staff provides private and small group instruction in all aspects of the game, including hitting, pitching, fielding and throwing, to baseball and softball players of all ages and skill levels.

In addition to the Academy’s instruction, we provide individuals and teams with a facility where they can practice their hitting, pitching, and fielding skills.  The Academy has batting cages that are open to the public and a training facility that can be rented by teams.  Also, we will continue to offer our popular instructional clinics throughout the fall and winter.

The North Shore Baseball Academy has two, year round, indoor training facilities located in Highland Park and Vernon Hills.  Both facilities have excellent lighting and fully turfed playing surfaces.  Players and coaches have access to batting cages, pitching mounds, baseball and softball pitching machines, fielding areas and video analysis.  Our professional staff of instructors offer private lessons and group clinics at both locations.

At the North Shore Baseball Academy, it’s our instructors that make The Academy so special.

Each instructor brings their professional or collegiate playing experience and love for the game to each lesson.  This passion fosters a love for baseball or softball in each player, while he or she improves their skills through proper instruction and repitition.

And yes, that’s the owner pictured on the right, John Stutz, who played for the St. Louis Cardinals.
