"The Stars Camp was a truly great camp!  I can’t say how much better it was than any other we have attended.  There are always athletes that would not meet “the grade” for schools ...but the refreshing part of the day was every kid received the same time and evaluations as any other!  The coaches never showed any signs of being tired after a 10 hour day and evaluated until the VERY end!  It was so refreshing to see a camp that wasn’t all about the money!  Good luck...we will be back !


"My son had a great time yesterday at the camp and said he learned a lot. He is looking forward to coming back next year."


"Just wanted to let you know Jake hit a triple tonight.  Never seen him hit so well.  Thank you!"

Kirsten H.

"My sons enjoyed every minute of camp and want to do more!  We were very impressed from the easy online registration to the last day of camp.  Bravo on an excellent program with amazing young men!  Thanks for everything!"

Katie B.

"I wanted to touch base with you, we met with Coach Tezak for private lessons and he's awesome. The boys love him!!"

Tammy K.

"Just a quick thank you to you and the baseball team members. Trevor really enjoyed playing Fall League and had a great experience. Thanks again! "

Becky D.

"I can't thank the staff enough for being so patient and doing a great job of working with each kid based on their skill level. Thank you! Thank you! My oldest son has learned so much from these camps as well and will keep sending the boys."

Tracy V.

“Nebraska Baseball is a tight knit, extremely loyal and hard working network across the State.  What Coach Ledbetter and Erstad have done is taken time to foster the roots of some amazing home grown talent we have in the area.  A big thank you to the Big Red Coaching Staff for taking their time to further develop our talent within.  Very impressed.”

Tim L.

"Can you please pass along my thanks to Coach Erstad and his staff.  My son had an amazing time today at the Stars Camp!  He really picked up some nice tips today, especially when it comes to catching. It was also pretty amazing for Coach Erstad, Ledbetter and Kirby to actually speak with Jackson one on one."

Jon M.

"Thank you for having a camp in Ogallala.  My son had a blast and we hope that there is one again next year.  Thanks!"

Andrew C.

"My son had a blast at the Rushville Summer Day Camp. He was very excited about the basic skills he learned and he put them to good use already. Thanks to all the crew."

Marj O.

"I would just like to say thank you for allowing the Nebraska Baseball Academy to come back to Friend again!  We have really enjoyed you guys coming and the kids absolutely love it!  We really had a great day yesterday, much better than our rain delay last year!  The players/coaches are just amazing with those kids and it’s so fun to watch the boys look up to the big boys!"

Brook P.

"This was our first Nebraska Baseball Academy experience and I must say that I am so very impressed.  It was very well run, very well organized and a big help for my 8 year old.  We look forward to more camps in the future."

Jim J.

"Please convey our appreciation to the coaching staff for the pitching/catching clinic that concluded yesterday.  Our son came home with a renewed determinatin to become the best pitcher he can possibly be.  His mom and I couldn't be happier with the outcome."

David H.

"My two oldest sons have played fall ball for three years, however this year was exceptional !  They had a complete blast playing ball, learning, winning some games, and mostly being coachd by Garett King.  What a neat young man!  We love this program, the coaching and the experience.  They boys are better for being a part of it.  The Colfax County Cowboys will be back again next year!  Finally, thanks for your work in conducting this program for the small town kids who don't have high school baseball programs.  It has been a great fall !"

Shanda H.

"I want to give some kudos to our Fall League umpire/coach on the field, Jimmy Steinauer.  He did a good job umpiring (I could care less about that, though) but he was terrific with instruction to our kids.  He was the most active coach we have had to date and we have had some good coaches/umpires already. My catcher has a lot of mechanical issues and Jimmy was great in helping him.  Bottom line is, he just helped all my kids in some way, shape or form.  A very nice role model for my kids and he represented the University’s baseball program in a very, very positive manner.  He worked hard too.  The UNL coaches in Syracuse were all helpful as well.  Coach Smith stopped by and he and I had a great discussion about some strategies to cut down on our strikeouts.  If you can’t tell, I am very happy with this fall league.  It has been outstanding for our kids and for me as a coach."

Tim W.


"My son had a fantastic day in Glenwood Wednesday! He's so excited about everything he learned. It was a very hot day, but he really enjoyed it!  Thanks so much!"

Julie U.

"My son had a wonderful day in Syracuse! It was all he could talk about this morning!
Dan M.
"Our Minden boys had an amazing day in Friend yesterday! Thank you for your time and leadership to these young men. Also, thank you to Friend and all the volunteers making it a great day!"
Darcie R.
"Ken did a phenomenal job teaching the boys hitting and defensive skills. More than that though, he was great for their self esteem.  We were welcomed by the coaches and players both times we were in the training complex. Their demeanor speaks volumes for your program.  Thanks again for everything and please thank Ken for doing such an outstanding job!"
Kristal S.
"My son Matthew attended your hitting and pitching camps that finished up this last weekend.    Matt had a great time, and got some excellent instruction.  He and I both want to say thank you and wish you best in your upcoming season."
Jim P.
"I wanted to drop an email to thank you for a great fall program. My boys play travel ball and Little League baseball and I have to say that this was the best thing I could have done to help improve their skills. Coach Dave and Terry were awesome and I can't say enough about their dedication and training skills. They paid close attention to the kids and ensured that all aspects of their game were touched upon with some form of assessment and training."
