Since 2005, Illinois Baseball Academy (IBA) has provided professional training and resources for numerous baseball organizations throughout the Chicagoland area. IBA has always embraced a unique instructional philosophy: a “Holistic Mission”. As stewards of the game, they feel it is their responsibility to blend superior baseball instruction with valuable character education. For IBA, it’s more than just baseball.
They pride themselves on serving professionally and collaboratively- all camps, clinics, and leagues are designed to meet the specific needs expressed by the organizations they serve. Their facility, lovingly referred to as “The Yard,” was developed in coordination with local community baseball associations to provide year-round training. With approximately 5,000 square feet of space, hitting cages, a pitching tunnel, and open areas for fielding – it is the perfect spot to meet all indoor training needs.
IBA goes to great lengths to recruit and develop coaches who understand their mission and demonstrate a willingness to put the needs of players first- always. All of their senior instructors were accomplished high school players, played at the college level, and some even have professional playing experience.
Trey Frahler is the President of Illinois Baseball Academy. A native Northfielder, he currently lives in Lake Forest with his wife and four children. Trey's passion for baseball and child development led him to IBA in 2011. He is grateful for the positive impact and lessons learned from his baseball career. Trey's greatest satisfaction comes from the relationships he has cultivated with players and their families over the years. He is proud to be a part of the Northfield and baseball community and appreciates watching the players grow in the game and beyond.
IBA offers private lessons, hosts birthday parties, and much more! For more information about their 164 Northfield Road location, visit www.illinoisbaseballacademy.com or call 847-386-6308.
