The Florida Hardballers was founded in Gainesville, Florida by, John Colacci and Kevin Maris in the summer of 2006.

Our goal is to provide a quality baseball program focused on developing, promoting, and showcasing our players from across North Central Florida. For over thirteen years, the program has been committed to advancing players’ abilities to an elite level, which will allow them the opportunity to play college or professional baseball.

The Florida Hardballers’ program is exemplified in its player development. Starting with the Hardballers Youth Program, we are dedicated to helping our players grow and understand the preparation involved in becoming a premier baseball talent. Our coaching staff has been involved in hundreds of player placements into the collegiate ranks at all levels, as well as guided several players through the MLB professional draft.
