The Toronto Mets Baseball Club was formed in 2004 and was established to promote elite amateur baseball in the Greater Toronto Area. The program has evolved into the preferred destination for players looking to compete at the highest level. Our mission is to provide our players with the character, baseball and life skills necessary to succeed at their next level. 143 players have graduated from our program to have successful collegiate baseball careers in the NCAA, NAIA or NJCAA. 38 former Mets have represented Canada while playing for the Junior National Team. 21 players have been drafted by MLB organizations, and 58 have participated in Tournament 12.
The Mets are a proud member of the Canadian Premier Baseball League (CPBL) and affiliate of Baseball Ontario. We field full time teams at the 14, 15, 16U, 17U and 18U age groups. The Toronto Mets also operate a development program (Toronto Baseball Group) for players of Peewee and Mosquito age groups. The Development program runs for 16 weeks (Jan – May). In addition, we also operate a Development team (Sept – May) which participates in additional practices, local games.
Our 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18U teams operate year round. Their fall schedules begin in late August/early September and run until late October. During our fall segment our teams will practice, play local games, and travel to the U.S. to participate in select tournaments. Our 17, and 18U program travel extensively to the U.S. to compete against top Collegiate Competition. Some of our past opponents have been Stony Brook University (NCAA D1), Binghamton University (NCAA D1), University of Akron (NCAA D1), Northern Kentucky University (NCAA D1), Eastern Kentucky University (NCAA D1) Cal U at Pennsylvania, (NCAA D2), Slippery Rock University (NCAA D2), Rio Grande University (NAIA) Lakeland CC, and Cuyahoga CC (NJCAA).
During the winter months our teams train at Out of The Park Sports (OPS) which is a premier indoor baseball training facility in southern Ontario. During this time players focus on baseball skill development, position specific training, as well as team development while improving their strength and conditioning with our Physical training program.
The CPBL schedule runs from May 1st to June 30th, and playoffs follow in early August. The schedule consists of 30+ games against the top amateur players in Ontario. The CPBL is home to 173 MLB draft picks, 135 Junior National Team Players, and over 730 College Commitments.
