Medina County’s Premier Baseball Training Facility

Welcome to IVL Baseball. Whether you’re new to baseball and looking to build fundamentals, or an experienced athlete looking to fine tune your talents, IVL Baseball is the place to make it all happen.

IVL Baseball, formerly Ventura Baseball Academy, was founded in 2011 by John Ventura. After two successful years of instruction and growth, former MLB player Joe Inglett and Joe Lazor joined the facility— making it the premier facility for baseball instruction in the state of Ohio. Please explore our website to find a coach, get information about camps, and learn about memberships. We look forward to working with you.
