About Us

Bases Loaded Baseball & Softball Academy was created by former major league pitcher, Jim Neidlinger in 2010.  It is an instruction-based facility for players of all skill levels.  The facility offers year round private & semi-private lessons, small group clinics, indoor baseball & softball leagues and is the home of the Bases Loaded Bulldogs Travel Organization.

Bases Loaded was named a Top 25 facility nationally in 2017.

Our Mission

Let's face it - baseball and softball are some of the hardest sports to master. Our goal is to help area youth succeed, at all levels, by instituting the basic fundamentals that every player needs. How we do that is by utilizing our many years of professional playing and teaching experience while leveraging the latest in technology and techniques, such as our Rapsodo hitting and pitching system.

Reviews

"My two sons have been very fortunate to be working with Jim and his staff at Bases Loaded for the past seven years.  Quite simply, Coach Jim and his staff are proven winners in coaching baseball.  Their knowledge, attention to detail, and passion for developing kids into better baseball players makes Bases Loaded the premier place for skill development in the state of Vermont.  Both my sons have improved exponentially over the past several years and Bases Loaded has been the foundation of their success on the field.  We are thankful, honored, and proud to be a part of the Bulldog family!"  - Jeff Eaton 

"Bases Loaded offers a program second to none. They are comprised of an amazingly talented coaching staff that is not only knowledgeable in the sport but equally concerned with creating a positive experience, demonstrating to and instructing the kids on the importance of things such as sportsmanship, team culture and the many mental aspects of the game that continue to assist our kids as they mature into adulthood."
