An Italian Adventure, Competitive Baseball Exhibition & An Opportunity to Play for College Coaches

This Italian international trip with MVP is different than any trip in the past, as it will give high school players an opportunity to play for and in front of college coaches! You will meet, interact, and play for Frank Leoni, Head Baseball Coach at Marymount University and Jeff Kinne, Head Baseball Coach at Hampden-Sydney College. Both of these coaches bring vast amounts of baseball experience and knowledge, giving you the chance to be evaluated and highly coached all week long. For some it may bring a different approach to the game of baseball, for some it may bring a new experience and opportunity, and for others – it may be the next stepping stone in your baseball career.

TO MVP International

This was a fantastic trip. Both sons absolutely loved it and, before we got home from Puerto Rico, they were asking to do another MVP trip. Beautiful hotel, super fun group activities, lots of opportunities for excursions and free time, and a priceless baseball experience.

We had a truly amazing time on this trip — just the right amount of baseball, planned sightseeing, and free time. Every detail of the program came off without a hitch. We cannot recommend this experience highly enough..

Another outstanding trip by MVP International! Fun options for free time. In fact there were too many good choices we had to split up and enjoy multiple side trips. The hotels were some of the best we’ve seen on these trips. As always the trip goes so fast but we love the people, seeing our boys representing the USA , and having them learn about new countries and cultures that will stay with them forever.

Our family had a fabulous time! The trip details were seamless, nothing was left to question, and it was clear as to where to go, what to do, what we needed to pay for on our own, etc. We made wonderful new friends and created memories of a lifetime. The trip and plans exceeded our expectations, and we have high standards! 🙂

We had a great time! The tours, free time and sight seeing was awesome. It was a wonderful opportunity for the young ladies; their exposure to to another culture that shared their love and passion for softball and to interact competitively and socially with them. It was as if they had always known them.
