Our Staff

Experienced & Dedicated Baseball Coaches

The NJ Marlins coaching staff is a highly qualified, experienced team of baseball players/instructors who bring much more than game skills and technical knowledge to the table. With a mission to go beyond “trophy chasing” to share important life skills, game etiquette, sports ethics and team spirit, our staff makes a tremendous impact on every team member.

Read about it in a parent’s words: After playing for many travel teams over the years, the NJ Marlins program has opened the most doors for my son Ian.  The coaching and training has been first rate and he has had the opportunity to be seen by plenty of college and pro scouts from around the country during Marlin tournament and league games.  Many thanks to Ed Graziano for his dedication to the players and for this opportunity.” – Bob Glassman
