The Minnesota Blizzard is the most successful traveling and club baseball program in Minnesota and among the top select teams in the Midwest winning over 150 national tournaments and placing in the top four 300 times since 2003.

The Blizzard program draws players ages 10u-18u from all around Minnesota including Albert Lea to Duluth and has had several players from the Dakotas, Iowa, Wisconsin and even Canada.

Our Blizzard Baseball Academy, a core part of the Blizzard program, offers small group training, individual lessons, strength training and has avenues for our players to participate in showcases, fall leagues and tournaments.

Over 515 players have committed to play college baseball and another 60+ have been drafted or signed as free agents in the last ten years including 18 players who were drafted in the top 10 rounds.  It is one of the most well-respected programs in the Midwest and has garnered attention from KSTP 5, Kare 11, ESPN 1500, Fox9, Channel 6, the Star Tribune and the Upper Deck Report among others.

Our vision and values of the Blizzard Big 5 drive our core values, guide players through their youth years, into high school and onto both college and professional baseball.

Play with the best in the state against the best in the country. Blizzard Baseball.
