Top Tier Announces South Expansion

McCook,IL: Today, Top Tier Baseball announces the expansion of its youth program into the south suburbs of Chicago. The Top Tier youth program has enjoyed remarkable success developing young baseball players on and off the field. By bringing this history of development to the talent rich area of Chicago’s south suburbs, Top Tier baseball looks to build on its tradition of baseball excellence.

Founder and CEO, Todd Fine, had this to say about the expansion. “Expanding into the south suburbs is a natural progression for Top Tier at this stage. Our youth program does a fantastic job developing players and preparing them for the future. Our goal has always been to give young baseball players a platform and opportunity to grow within the game, so they can develop in to the best player and person they can be. This expansion allows us to reach a greater number of young players.  ” Top Tier baseball will run a youth program modeled after teams in the western suburbs, focusing on player development. The program will be based out of Plainfield, and will include ages 9U-14U.

When discussing the expansion of the youth program, Youth Director Seth Kenny said, “We are very excited about our growth into Plainfield and the surrounding suburbs. This expansion will be a success because we will bring the same enthusiasm, work ethic, and commitment to make 9U-14U players the best they can be on and off the field. The traditions we have built at the youth level, with the simple goal of getting better every day, will continue to guide our staff in the south suburbs.”  Each team will be provided with a professional coach who is selected and trained by Top Tier’s full time baseball staff.

Top Tier High School Director, Griffin Phelps, thinks this a great opportunity for the brand to continue its growth and help more players achieve their goals by playing college baseball. “This is a great opportunity for us to bring the Top Tier tradition of excellence to even more baseball players in the Chicagoland area. We will continue to focus our energy on player development and college placement once players reach the high school ranks.”
