COLLEGE BASEBALL GROUP
OUR BASEBALL STORY
Baseball is the ultimate All-American sport.
The love of the game and its tradition continues to be passed down, from generation to generation; the foundation of many family events, bonding moments, and life-changing experiences. Baseball’s fundamentals include intellect, pride, community, tradition, mental fortitude, and tenacity. Co-founder and Managing Partner Kevin Small’s love for baseball came at an early age, and his hard work and years of dedication allowed him to realize his dream professionally while traveling around the world.
After living out his dream, stayed involved in baseball in coaching and scouting positions. Kevin had a strong desire to give back to the baseball community’s student-athletes, with a more personal approach to the recruiting process. During one chance encounter, Kevin met Geoff and the two immediately started brainstorming how to create opportunities for student players to be noticed by college coaches while keeping the love of baseball and more importantly, the fun, in it.
In 2017, with more than 30 years of combined industry experience, College Baseball Group was born.
“A lot of showcase camps offer exposure for student-athletes,” remarks Kevin Small, “where we stand out, is in every single camp, with every single player, we strive to make the experience of getting noticed energetic, fun, and rewarding in the long-term,”
The process of getting seen by your top college choices should be one where players feel supported, take the experience to better their skills, mental preparedness, and build confidence. “Some players go home with the experience of being guided by top coaches from their favorite schools and an unintended spark that boosts their confidence. It’s one of my favorite things to see,” Geoff Kimmel expresses.
WHY IT'S MORE THAN A GAME
Getting student-athletes noticed and connecting with top coaches from prestigious colleges is where we excel, however, baseball is more than a game. At College Baseball Group, we provide players with high energy and valuable experiences that allow players to showcase their abilities while learning mindset attributes that position them for success in all endeavors in life.
“Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day, and that’s the way baseball is.”
