Founded in 2009 by Major League Baseball Hitting Coach John Mallee, the Northwest Indiana Shockers summer travel baseball teams are considered one of the top programs in Northwest Indiana and Eastern Illinois.  Those players selected will train and follow the same training drills and practice structure that Minor and Major league teams utilize in professional baseball during the winter months.  The goal is to make this the best learning and playing experience for all the players.

As part of the Northern Illinois Metro League (NIML), the season runs April through July, with try-outs taking place in August then practices and workouts starting in November.

The Shockers teams participates in various tournaments, sanctioned by several National baseball organizations, approximately 40-60 games per year.

John Mallee, along with his professional staff, will help train the team throughout the fall, winter and early spring months.  The team will practice once a week during the winter at an indoor training facility for 1 1/2 hrs per week.  Players will have the option to hit 2-3 times each week in our indoor batting cages.  Each team will be limited to 12 players to insure everyone gets maximum playing time.

One parent describes their experience with the Shockers organization..."My son's experience with the Shockers has been excellent!  The training he received from you exceeded my expectations and I believe is unmatched in the Northwest Indiana area.  I have seen significant improvement in his level of play and confidence from the beginning of the season."
