ESP Select Baseball & ESP Elite Softball offer a unique opportunity to join one of the top competitive baseball & softball programs in the area at the 9u -18u levels. We will have our max of approximately 30 teams for the 2021-2022 season!!! ESP Select Baseball & Elite Softball offers a blend of great coaching, player development /individual instruction at ESP, top level competition mixed with good old fashion fun. Expectations vary at each level, but you could potentially play 40-50 games at the 14u and under level and ~6-8 tournaments. Some tournaments could be out of state. Local mid-week development games could also be scheduled. At the 15u-18u levels, we will offer a college exposure opportunity after the high school season beginning around Memorial Day through late July.
