NET Elite Baseball is designed to help provide meaningful experiences, competition, and training for student athletes. Our goal is to grow with the community and help give kids the best chance to play baseball in front of colleges, scouts, and other teams that they wouldn’t normally compete against.
NET Elite Baseball was founded by, former professional baseball player, Wesley Jones. Wesley partnered with his brother, Brad, and together they launched the company in 2014.
