the academy

TNXL Academy, positioned in Ocoee, FL, was established by Brian Martinez in 2014 as an alternative high school baseball platform for players seeking preparation for higher levels of the sport. The academy’s inception was driven by a desire to prioritize player development over championship outcomes. Under the consistent and structured guidance of Brian Martinez and Mike Mercadante, TNXL offers balanced, baseball-specific training tailored for elite-level players. Now in its eighth year, the academy has grown from a modest team of 14 to a robust group of 85 hard-working individuals. The vision of TNXL is to continue advancing in both the mental and physical facets of baseball, equipping these young men for future challenges in the game and beyond.

a day in the life

A TNXL athlete’s daily regimen involves four and a half hours of specialized training tailored to their position. Each day is meticulously structured to optimize opportunities for improvement and understanding in all facets of baseball, from appropriate warming-up and stretching practices to simulated in-game situations. TNXL harnesses the power of FlightScope technology to monitor the on-field performance metrics of our athletes. This includes tracking pitch speed, spin rate, and location for pitchers, as well as exit velocity, launch angle, and distance for hitters. The strength and conditioning segment of our athletes’ daily routine, led by Competitor Performance Academy, is crucial and is customized to meet the unique requirements of each individual. When it comes to speed and endurance, we are privileged to have industry-leading experts on our team. Our athletes undergo tests six times annually to monitor progress in distinct areas. These results are invaluable in shaping the future training protocols for each athlete. Training sessions for TNXL players occur from Monday to Thursday, with Friday as an optional day for individual practice.

Based on a study by the NCAA, the probability of high school baseball players competing at the college level is 5.6%, with 2.2% playing at the Division I level.   At TNXL, 93 graduating players have signed to play college baseball, and eight others were drafted after their senior high school season, for a total of 101 out of 107 high school graduates given the opportunity to play at THE NEXT LEVEL. That’s a 95% success rate!

College baseball scouts evaluate players by arm strength, fielding range, speed, and hitting for power and average.  It is important for coaches to know what skills college scouts are looking for in players of each position in order to fine tune those skills.

At TNXL, our results speak for themselves.  If you’re interested in playing at the next level, ask yourself this one important question: Am I confident the program and coaches I am involved with now, will get me there?
