North Wall Little League is happy to introduce one of our new sponsors – MPI (Mavs Performance Institute).  They donated a full session of training to this year’s NWLL Winter Skills Camp.  If you are interested in visiting their facility in Neptune and checking out their program, feel free to contact Rob Corsi at MPI. His contact info is: or call 908 770 4176.

Here is a brief recap of their Youth Training Program:

Baseball and softball players ages 8-12 are invited to join us at MPI for our Youth Training Program. The training is twice per week, currently Tuesdays 6-8 and Sundays 10-12. The sessions are run by former Houston Astros pitcher Howie Brey.

The training covers hitting, fielding, throwing, base-running, catching, pitching, and mental baseball. While learning the fundamentals of the game, the boys and girls are put in a fun, competitive environment.

The cost of the program is $179/month, and memberships can be renewed/cancelled month-to-month, which means no long term commitment is needed. The first month for any NWLL player will be $159 (make sure you mention North Wall Little League when you register). 

These are some of the words shared with us from the parents of players that attend our youth training:

As a parent of an 11 year old baseball player, we have had or been exposed to numerous coaches over the years; however the training and skills my son is developing at MPI have been outstanding. These are the advanced skills that players can get regardless of their age or skill level. More importantly baseball is supposed to be fun and there hasn’t been a session yet where my son has walked out without thinking or smiling about the new skills he is developing. Excellent staff and facilities!

On my rides home from MPI’s youth training classes I always ask my son how the class was. He said it was awesome: he learned some drop steps, proper throwing mechanics for double plays from both SS and 2nd base. He also spoke of cool twists in tweaking his swing and approach. This is coming from a 9 year old. That’s what you get when you join MPI and train with Howie, Rob, Rob, Steve, and Mike, former All-State, All-Conference, and professional players . From a parents standpoint, I have to admit I catch myself saying “I wish I had this as a kid” just about every time I’m there. The facility is top notch, equipped with everything possible for the boys and girls to succeed. The coaches are extremely knowledgeable, and always have a good game plan for each weeks training classes. Even more so the coaches have fun with the kids. What excites me mostly is that everyday that there is a class I never have to talk Carney into going. He’s always ready early and talking about what he wants to work on. From catching and throwing, to proper swing mechanics and simply learning the game and how to be a better athlete you will not find a finer group of people to trust your children with. MPI is where my son started at age 7, and hopefully it will be the place he trains at in high school and beyond. Our family wouldn’t have it any other way.

We would be happy to answer any questions regarding our training program. Shoot us an email at, or call us at 908 770 4176.

We look forward to seeing some new faces from North Wall Little League!
