What people are saying about NLB

I truly believe that Franco [and NLB] are a big reason for my production on the field, in my mind, and at home. I would not be where I am today without them.

Center Fielder, White Sox

Jake Boss

Head Coach, Michigan State University

The information that he provided these young men on the mental approach to the game of baseball was first class. I wish I had the information that Franco provided during his talk when I was a young player.

Matt Kirby

Assisant Coach, University of Virginia
