What is World Baseball Experience?

  • We train coaches and volunteers from grassroots to high-performance levels.
  • We educate and guide student athletes, and their families through the college process.
  • We offer baseball career coaching, consulting, and job placement.
  • We simply love this game too much not to share.

Meet Coach Nick Holmes

“I understand that I do not, can not and will not know everything there is to know about baseball or life.

What I do know is that this game has given me some of the most significant moments, and created most of the joy that has come my way.

This game has positioned me to act on countless opportunities to better myself. I have built lifelong relationships and seen the world through cultures and people that I never imagined I would in a lifetime.

My goal is to reach as many young players and coaches as I can and leave a big enough impression that they want to learn more and give more to keep the cycle going.”

My Mission

To change and improve the world through baseball. 

My Philosophy

Use life lessons to learn and teach constant and continual improvement from a growth mindset while getting a little better everyday.

“To improve is to change; to perfect is to change often.” – Winston Churchill
