Focus on hard work and striving to become a better ballplayer. We believe in pushing your teammates to be better, picking them up when they are down, and always believing in yourself. Character is revealed in times of adversity and baseball provides that adversity. By putting these young baseball players in competitive situations, we help them develop their character which will benefit them not only in baseball, but in life.


2015 We Opened Moe Joe Baseball Academy, LLC. located in Coventry, RI.

And Moe Joe Baseball Club, opened in 2016 a 501 (c) non- profit.  We started with 3 teams, now have about 5 teams ages 9 thru 17. We have players from all over the southern New England area, on our teams.

It is our mission to teach the game of baseball and create an environment where young players can work to achieve their dreams of playing college or professional baseball.

Our coaches work to achieve this by playing in highly competitive leagues and tournaments and when possible, showcases for our older players.

We also believe that through baseball we can help build character and determination, which will truly be an asset to our players in their future.
