The New York Nine were a huge part of my maturity as a baseball player. Given the opportunity to travel the country against the top talent in the country showed where we stood as individuals against the nations best. Playing a dense schedule during the summer showed me what it took physically and mentally to not only play, but how to excel at the next level. Without the New York Nine and Ian Millman, I would not be at a school right now, Ian provided me with an opportunity to earn a scholarship to Concordia College after my previous choice fell through, where I was able to immediately become a starter. If you want the opportunity to compete against the best competition and get seen by schools and professionals, the New York Nine is the place to be.
