OUR STORY

NeXup Baseball was created simply out of our love for the game. Capturing video, posting on instagram and commenting on twitter on up and coming amateur baseball players began as a hobby. We were primarily looking for opportunities to establish baseball relationships, so we started capturing cool highlights, taking photos, and featuring young athletes showing off their skills and talents. However, In 2018, after the East Coast Pro event, the idea to build a media company came to mind. We identified a need in the baseball industry, and created NexUp as a medium to focus on the growth of the game and a place that players can display their personalities on the field and beyond. 

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

To give amateur baseball players a voice through their talent that speaks volumes on the field everyday by highlighting and featuring their skills, showing their personalities and building relationships across the industry, and then ultimately securing a future in the MLB

A platform that provides fans young and old to see how special the game is and the athletes that play means everything.
