"Thank you for creating more opportunities for me in a couple years than any coach has for me in my 11 years of travel ball. I couldn't have asked for a better mentor to coach me and to learn the game from. I made a lot of new family and a lot of new memories. I'm grateful that this team and these group of guys came through my life."
"Our family could write an entire book on all the reasons why Midwest Recruiting is doing it right. But for the sake of time, we’ll keep it short. Hands down, the best baseball experience we’ve ever had. Our oldest son is entering his second year playing college baseball and played two years for Aaron; our next son is a senior in high school and has played three years for Aaron and has already had loads of college exposure through the program. We have often said that if there was a mafia formed in the travel baseball world, Aaron would have a hit out on his head. Why? Because he doesn’t get caught up in all the nonsense that comes with travel ball. He couldn’t care less about the image, the matching bat bags and gear, and the ridiculous price tag that comes with most of those programs. We all know that’s just a money racket anyway. Aaron wants players who are there to do one thing. Play ball. And he’s there to coach. Period. He is a no-nonsense guy who always takes a positive approach to the game - no yelling; no jack-wagon behavior; no arguing with umps; treats all players with respect; teaches the game using the best method possible-experience-and he even lets the boys coach their own bases and call their own plays. Aaron genuinely wants to see every player pursue their own baseball journey in their own unique way, and his love for the game is evident in the way he coaches. We love Midwest, and are sad that our son is graduating out of the program next year. It’s been a FANTASTIC experience!"
Thank you Coach for everything!! Boy;s thank you for a great summer! Had a blast with you all!"
"Hello coach, I just wanted to thank you for the great season! I really had fun and you have helped me so much with my recruiting process.
I hope to see you soon."
"We have been in the baseball world for 14 seasons / travel ball for 8 seasons, William played one year with Midwest Recruiting and Aaron, this is the first time he has ever been excited to be invited back to play for someone. This is the team he has definitely been searching for, he appreciates the discipline and teaching he has received from Aaron and Matty. I had only wished he played for them sooner."
Final tournament of the year this weekend in Columbus, OH with Midwest Recruiting.

"Aaron thank you for the opportunity for him to play with you all. He loved it and when we left he told us he really enjoyed the boys and said you were awesome in the dugout and a great coach. He really enjoyed the environment that you guys have during the game...just very chill and relaxed with low stress"
"Thank you everyone on this team for being the best possible teammates and making baseball fun to play with you guys."
