Top Tier Baseball Welcomes Tino Abarca as Brand Manager

Top Tier is proud to announce the addition of Tino Abarca as Brand Manager. Abarca brings years of experience in the amateur baseball industry having been with Prep Baseball since 2018. As the Midwest Director of Operations at Prep Baseball, Abarca’s responsibilities included event and backend operations, social media and more.

"We're thrilled to welcome Tino to the team," said Todd Fine, CEO and founder of Top Tier Baseball. "With a wealth of industry knowledge gained during his time at Prep Baseball, Tino's expertise will undoubtedly elevate Top Tier, solidifying our position as one of the nation's premier organizations."

Abarca’s passion for promoting amateur athletes makes him a great fit within the Top Tier organization. Promotion of coaches and alumni will also be among top priorities across several initiatives lined up for 2024 and years to come.

“I’ve seen what Top Tier has achieved over the years, growing up in the Chicagoland area playing and being an avid fan of the game while at Reavis High School,” Abarca said. “Then, while at Prep Baseball, I had the chance to follow Top Tier closely, and I grew a strong appreciation for what they do, and most importantly, the quality of people within the organization. Todd Fine has an exceptional eye for talent. To be acknowledged by him as someone who can elevate the Top Tier experience for players, coaches, parents and alumni is an honor I don’t take lightly.”

Abarca attended Michigan State University where he majored in Journalism and graduated with his Bachelor’s Degree in 2018. He also has an Associate’s Degree in Communications. 

Responsibilities will include - but are not limited to - media initiatives, alumni engagement, marketing, content creation and more. 


In 2004 Top Tier started with one team. It was an 18U team that traveled the country, quickly creating a national brand with the style of baseball they played. That team went on to win 40+ games and featured future big leaguer John Ely and five draft picks.
Top Tier has evolved from its inception in 2004 to one of the elite amateur baseball organizations in the United States. The strength of our program lies in our commitment in developing players and building confidence through hard work and dedication.
We design our program to maximize the exposure of our players by playing a competitive regional schedule combined with strategic elite national events. Our high school schedule provides players the platform to showcase their abilities in front of the top schools and scouts across the country. Over the past several years, Top Tier players have committed to schools in the Power Five Conferences and more including Big Ten, SEC, ACC, Pac-12, Big 12, Big East, Missouri Valley, and Ivy League among others.

We take great pride in Top Tier's "A Tradition of Baseball Excellence" that has developed as a result of hard work by many outstanding players, the dedication of coaches, the unwavering assistance of our sponsors and the commitment and support of parents. The common purpose of all those involved is to put players in a position to compete, thereby gaining confidence with success and learning from failure. We believe our staff puts players in the best position to succeed on and off the field. Since our inception in 2004, Top Tier has expanded from just a single team out of Chicago into 150 teams, spanning the country from coast-to-coast.
