ORGANIZATION FACTS

 

The Upstate Mavericks Organization was founded in 2006 by current President and Head Coach Chris Nall. Coach Nall was a starting pitcher for Coach Chris Pollard (now Head Coach at Duke University) at Pfeiffer University where they won back to back Conference Championships in 2003-2004. In 2004, Nall helped lead the Falcons to a school record 44 wins and a berth in the NCAA Regional. Since graduating, Coach Nall has been the Recruiting Coordinator at both Anderson University and Limestone College. He also won back to back District Championships, and Region Coach of the Year as the Head Coach at Christ Church High School and has been an Associate Scout for the NY Mets. Since 2006, Nall has helped over 330 players go on to play college baseball and has had 27 players drafted by Major League Baseball.  

The Mavericks Organization is built around competition. There is a strong belief that many life lessons are learned through team sports, especially baseball. Playing games that matter against competition that is equal or better is what our seasons consist of. We will compete against the best competition in the country and we will never lose…. we will either win or we will learn!!!

In 2014 alone, the Mavericks finished 2nd in both the 14U and 17U division of the Perfect Game Invitational…16U finished 3rd in the Perfect Game Memorial Day Classic…the 17U team won the Perfect Game Elite Underclass and the Perfect Game Labor Day Classic…and to top it off the 14U team won the Perfect Game WWBA National Championship!!!
