About Mudville Pinnacle NW 18U
Mudville is in its 17th year of operations. The 18U program actively seeks players who have a strong desire to advance to the next level of play. These players must have a strong work ethic with a commitment to their team and coaches. Our club’s coaching philosophy is to surround these types of players with expert instruction in all facets of the game so they can accomplish their goals. Simply put, this is not about recruiting the highest tier high school players, filling out a line-up card and rolling the ball out to win. The greater challenge is developing the player’s ability, increasing performance in the framework of a team structure while playing the game of baseball correctly.
SportsRecruits empowers high school athletes to pursue their dreams of playing at the next level by offering tools and guidance to streamline the recruiting process. Members develop and maintain a player profile with their academic transcripts, test scores, event schedule and video. Using the Built-In Messaging System, members contact their target list of schools in just a few clicks, and then track which schools are looking at their information.
