ABOUT US

HARDCORE
ELITE BASEBALL

Mission
Hardcore Elite Baseball is Pittsburgh-based AAU travel baseball program with dedicated players (and families) who love the game of baseball. We have teams structured to compete locally — and also against the best players in their age group regionally and nationally. Our tournament and showcase schedule varies per age group and team talent. Contact us if you have team and/or program questions at admin@HardcoreEliteBaseball.com.

 

We have competitive teams and players that compete against the best programs in the country. We have top-talent players that have been selected to play on PBR Team Pennsylvania and represent our state nationally on those showcase teams (if you have questions about PBR or Perfect Game Showcases or Tournaments, reach out to us for details at admin@HardcoreEliteBaseball.com). 

 

Our professional training staff has over 120 years of combined professional baseball experience as players, coaches, scouts and front office executives. They are a blend of multiple former and current college coaches and varsity high school coaches, as well as current and former professional players on staff to train our players at the highest level.

 

Each of our teams from 13u and up will have at least one paid coach with a strong baseball playing and/or
coaching background.


 

Recruiting & Exposure
With over 120 years of combined experience in professional baseball and countless years of experience in the college game, our staff has great connections at numerous
universities across the country, as well as within the professional game. Your players future is just a phone call away to a recruiter, college coach or MLB scout.

 

We provide a roadmap for our players and families on their path toward college opportunities. We also have vast
experience in the showcase process, recruiting timeline, and the MLB draft. As a member of Hardcore Elite, you will have the opportunity to showcase your talent in front of college coaches and pro scouts each year (13u and up) at our Hardcore Elite “Scout Day” — in which we run a pro style workout for all of our players to showcase your speed in the 60-yard dash, your arm strength from your respective defensive position, your hitting ability, and your pitching and catching skills.

Team Structure

Roster Sizes:

9u – 12u: 12 player maximum

13u: 13 player maximum

14u and up: 14 player maximum including 1 “pitcher only” roster spot

 

Hardcore Elite will select rosters for each of its teams, these teams will be comprised of the best combination of players from any individual age grouping.

 

Each individual team has a tournament budget that will allow them the equivalent of a minimum of 10-tournaments at No Offseason Sports. We encourage our teams to also play in other tournaments which we understand may come at a higher fee.

 

Our goal is to provide game experience on quality fields while not having to travel every weekend to get that experience. We want our players to compete on the field and learn what it takes to be the best version of themselves through competition. We also want our players to be challenged, and we feel that diversifying their tournament schedule will allow for that.

As a staff, the development of our players is our number one objective. We want to develop the best possible players so that each of our athletes can maximize the return on their investment into the game of baseball. Each of our teams will have a minimum of 2 days of practice per week on turf fields. We are very fortunate to have access to turf fields so we are rarely impacted by weather.

 

Games are great for competition but practice is where you get better. We believe in creating as much practice time as possible so that the games are both fun and easy when it comes time to compete.

 

Hardcore Elite is committed to creating the best player development system in the area and building the foundation to allow for the maximum amount of success both at an individual level and team level.
