About North Shore Baseball Academy
The two owners, Lake Forest resident John Stutz (former St. Louis Cardinal), and Highland Park resident Peter Dallas (former Northern Leaguer), saw a need for quality baseball and softball instruction for kids of all ages and abilities, not only the elite players. Both Peter and John oversee the day-to-day operations and teach a full schedule of lessons.
In March of 2000, the first North Shore Baseball Academy opened its doors in Highland Park, IL. Since day one, the academy was known for the high quality of instructors on staff. Most of the instructors at the academy played professional baseball and every instructor has a passion for teaching kids.
By June of 2002, North Shore Baseball Academy doubled the size of the Highland Park location to 7,000 square feet due to the demand for their one-on-one lessons. In 2006, to better serve clients, it opened a second, 6,000 square foot, location in Libertyville, and has now moved it to Vernon Hills in an expanded 13,000 square foot facility. The North Shore Baseball Academy is dedicated to providing the best in baseball and softball instruction.
