North East Baseball has quickly become one of the best programs in the nation — let alone New England.
One of the men responsible for putting the program on the map is NEB National head coach, Jeff Sullivan, who joins the New England Baseball Journal Podcast to reflect on the 2021 season.
The NEB National 18U team recently took home a championship in its final fall tournament in the Northeast. That capped a successful 2021 campaign that saw the NEB National squad make the playoffs in every Perfect Game tournament it entered during the 2021 calendar year, including the 2021 WWBA World Championship in Jupiter, Fla.
“It’s been awesome; we’ve had a really good year,” Sullivan said. “Making the playoffs in Jupiter was probably the highlight. We had 20 D1 commits, and we had to fight to make it out of pool play. We faced players like (top high school prospect in the nation) Termarr Johnson, (BC commit) Adonys Guzman and (Louisville commit) Cam Collier. That was hard. We made the playoffs in every tournament for Perfect Game; that’s hard to do.”
