The Middletown Eagles Travel Baseball program provides players with an opportunity to be coached by the best coaches in the area to develop a large part of the foundation for the good of baseball in Middletown!
Proof is in the pudding! Midd South won the 2021 Group 4 State Championship with 5 of the 9 starters in the Championship game who played for the Middletown Eagles! Additionally, 21 of 24 players on the roster played for the Middletown Eagles and/or attended Do Damage Baseball Camp! In 2022, Midd South won the Monmouth County Championship with 4 former Middletown Eagles in the starting line-up! Many of those players stay involved and give back by coaching in our program. Ben Schild, Matt Pontari, Brendan Roche, Ryan St. Clair, Danny Corcoran, and Tommy DeMarco are a part of our current staff!
Unlike many travel programs our goal is not to win at all costs. Instead, we will strive to develop our players to be the best they can be both on and off the field. Character development is equally important for us towards helping our players reach their full potential. We will aim to achieve this through hard work, commitment, maintaining positive attitudes, and being great teammates at all times.
In the Spring of 2023 the Eagles fielded 9 teams (8U-14U)! In the Summer, we play in USABL Tournaments weekly through mid-August! We are approaching 20 tourneys in 2023! This Fall, we are up to 11 teams and are one of the only programs on track to play 100% of our games! With 7 straight weekends of rain this would be an extraordinary accomplishment! Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that 3 of our teams have finished the regular season undefeated! We are looking to keep our 3-season streak alive this Fall by winning yet another Championship! Although it's not all about winning, we love to WIN! Congrats to the Spring 9U Navy team on their CHIP! Our current 10U team won last Fall, and our current 13U team won it all in the Spring of '22! Let's keep it rolling this Fall!
