WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US
- Tim Adleman, Cincinnati Reds MLB Pitcher
"While trying to decide whether to continue my career as a professional pitcher, The Clubhouse gave me a place to workout and keep my arm in shape. The Velocity+ program offered by Mike and the staff played a huge role in getting me the opportunity to pitch for the Cincinnati Reds organization. If you are looking for a place to help you improve as a baseball player, The Clubhouse is where you want to be."
- Guy Hansen, MLB Pitching Coach KC Royals 1991-1993, and 2005 WBC Pitching Coach 2007
"The Clubhouse mission of encouraging player development and enhancing the baseball experience directly coincides with mine of making every single player as good as he possibly can be. Information gained here will prove invaluable to any player or any coach, at any level."
"Connecticut winters make it nearly impossible to appropriately throw and train in the off-season. Luckily, I was able to find The Clubhouse which provides not only an abundant space but also all the necessary tools to further my craft. Additionally, the continuous presence of former, current, and future Major League players serve as both a source of guidance as well as motivation."
- Barbara H., Parent
"The depth and breadth of coaching and instruction at The Clubhouse is second to none. There are a lot of travel programs out there that can ID great players and put together a winning team. But Porzio and staff are able to make good players into great players and great players into exceptional players because of their ability to teach, instruct and develop athletes-- they go way beyond coaching of the game. My son started training at The Clubhouse as a D3 hopeful and was a D1 commit 8 months later. Many thanks to Mike, Willie, Maxx, Pierre and the rest of the staff!"
- Rob Rizzitelli
"I'm a second year college player at a Division 2 Jr. College and after a few lessons with Mike Porzio I had a break through fall season and now have more opportunities and scholarship offers then I did out of high school."
- Nadia Kemp, Verbally Committed to Boston University

- Alex Katz, Baltimore Orioles (A-Adv.)
"Going to Mike is one of the greatest decisions I made in regards to my baseball career. The hour-long drive from Long Island to The Clubhouse is totally worth it for me. Mike's one-on-one training sessions have made me become a more complete pitcher and he is a major reason why I am where I am today."
- Raphael Chavez, L.A. Dodgers Pitching Coordinator
"The personal attention provided by The Clubhouse through evaluations, mentors, membership, instruction and other programs will benefit every baseball player. It is a terrific way to engage with a first-class team of baseball professionals."
- Chris Motta, Philadelphia Phillies Organization
"After getting released from the Frontier League in May, it seemed as if every door to play baseball was closing by the minute. The first person I called when I returned was Mike (Porzio). From there we worked all the way up to the final week, when I became a member of the Philadelphia Phillies organization. Mike and his wisdom about the game of baseball inspired and guided me to not only improve my game, but more importantly mentally. Forever thankful for Mike and The Clubhouse."
- Alex Smith, NY Yankees Organization
"Training at The Clubhouse this off-season was one of the best career decisions I have ever made. Mike (Porzio) knows exactly what it takes to make it in the game of baseball at any level. In my opinion, he is one of the most forward thinking instructors you can find. His Velocity Program has taken my game to the next level but most importantly it has kept me healthy. I look forward to working with Mike for many years."
- Mark Boland
"I went from being a high school back up to a college pitcher competing at Salve Regina University. Thank you Mike for everything you taught me and the great tips on how to compete at the next level."
