In that time they have had nearly 400 college commitments and 25 MLB draft picks. The Ohio Elite Baseball organization is based upon a shared philosophy of it's founder Kelly Ratcliff and our players, coaches, and parents. First, we will focus on player development and showcasing their skills and talents to college coaches and professional scouts. Second, and more importantly, we will help the boys mature into responsible young men and teach life lessons through the game of baseball. Ohio Elite teams and players are expected to conduct themselves in a first-class manner, both on and off of the field. Our organization will continually stress good character, sportsmanship and the importance of respecting the game. The Ohio Elite Baseball organization wants players that have the desire to compete with the best against the best. This will be Ohio Elites first year having a college team. Our alums have inquired for years about this possibility and we are excited to get this going. This local opportunity will hopefully be a way for our players to come home, play
