To all Staff & Counselors at Franco’s All-Star Baseball Camp,

Aidan had a great time for the third summer in a row. i as a dad could not have been more happy with the camp on every level. the staff is attentive, caring, and personable  to  both parents and campers. more important, the camp is not just about learning the game of baseball. it is evident to me that this camp stresses how important it is to be well rounded citizen through organization, structure, discipline, sportsmanship, and manner. coach nappo, stresses to take home one thing every day to make you a better baseball player, but the campers have no idea the invaluable lessons they are learning (FROM EXAMPLE) to be good students, and respectable individuals.

I just want to show my appreciation in some small way and thank the camp`s staff from top to bottom for providing an atmosphere i am proud to say my son is a participant!!  aidan`s love for the game hastened renewed (after a bad experience with a particular league on staten island) and even he realizes the difference staff can make. we are going to swing by (at his request) to see all his coaches one more time before the summer is over and say thank you personally

Sincerly,

Chris Hynes

Dear Mr. Franco and Mr. Nappo,

Dear Jim and Staff, We were discussing our plans for the summer this morning. My son said that he can’t wait to go to your camp again
this year! This will be his fourth year. Every year he brings a friend, and this past summer, he brought his cousin. He lives 2 hours
away and stayed with us for a week so that he could attend, too.

I want to thank you, which I should have done months ago, for taking such great care of my son. He has asthma and life-
threatening food allergies. Every year, you have assured me that he will be well taken care of, and he has been. Your
trained staff keeps a good eye on him and when I leave, I am confident that he is in good hands!

He had his first practice yesterday, and he was talking about what he learned at your camp last summer and how he will be using it
when he plays this season. He’s hoping to pass it on to some of the younger kids on the team, as he wants to be a leader
and a good example because he’s one of the older kids on the team.

I also really appreciate the fact that you demand respect for one another and for the game. We instill it in our children and
think it’s such a shame that so many people don’t anymore!

Thank you for doing such a great job!

Sincerely,

Kathy Falcone

Dear Mr. Franco and Mr. Nappo,

Hi. My name is Jimmy Matthies. My son Jimmy attended the last two weeks of camp. He
loved every day on that field. I know my son can get a little upset when he doesn’t do well (like make an out or drop a ball),
but Coach Sal and Anthony were very good. Jimmy loves playing baseball and he loves your camp. He
improved so much from just the first week. I hope to be able to send him all 4 weeks next year. He’ll be 7 and
hopefully a little more mature. I was able to come all week except Thursday and your camp is run very well. I
know it’s gotta be hard to handle so many 5-7 year olds but Sal and Anthony were great. Jimmy and I will definitely
see you next year. I thank you for your time and effort in this camp; I just wish I could be their age. If you can
tell Sal my son Jimmy says he’s gonna get him out next year and he promised to listen more.
Thank you again.

Yours Truly,
James Matthies and Jimmy

Hi Jim,

I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with your camp. This is my son’s first year and he absolutely LOVES it. I love it for many reasons:
1) you guys are very organized and that gives me peace of mind when leaving my 5 year old there for the day
2) the coaches are all great with the kids and that makes my son really enjoy being there
3) I love what and how you guys are teaching them – I thought that all baseball all day for 5 days might be too much but because of the variety of activities, my son comes home really happy at the end of the day – I also love how you guys speak to them – you really treat them like little adults instead of talking down to them as helpless children.

I just wanted to say thank you and I can’t wait to send my younger son to you when he is old enough!

Best Regards,
Cecilia DePrima

Hi, I’m new to Staten Island, and lived here for a better part of a month. Got to meet some fine people. Unfortunately I couldn’t get my 7 yr old son in baseball this year. I asked around about baseball camps, read about what’s available. 3 people at 3 different times and places recommended Francos camp at Mid-Island. So I took a shot, reason why the nice people who i spoke to gave it rave reviews. I signed him up and boy I wasn’t disappointed. I couldn’t believe how organized and structured a program this is. My son got so much out of this, and so did I. it made me so happy to know that these men treated each and every boy like young adults. Their teaching was second to none. I’ve seen camps before, and clinics before, but this camp just blew me away. The best part of all is their Friday awards day. How both directors spoke of family, school, preached to stay away from drugs. Just an incredible week, so good I decided to bring my boy back for the next 3 weeks. So with that if anyone wants to have their child learn, go to these guys. They’re great!! And a great thanks to Jim Franco. He’s a gentleman, and was really great to my boy. As well as the others

I read the post by melo7. I couldn’t agree more. Franco’s camp puts the others to shame. My boy has been to the others, great kills, 5 tool, and last year aces. All have their own style, but none compare to this camp. They’ve been around forever. My boy is 9 now and I’m sorry I chose them last. They’re really good and as a mother, who’s on a fixed income, they really give you bang for your money. I’m in my second week now, sorry to say that if it weren’t for vacation plans, we’d be here the whole summer. If anyone still wants to send their child to a great camp, I think they have 2 more weeks after this. I highly recommend this camp!!!!

Franco’s camp is the most established and in my opinion the best of the lot. My older son went there a few years back, and now my younger boy goes there. I wouldn’t have it any other way. The others claim to give, but they don’t. Mr. Franco is a beautiful person. His demeanor is the best around. I think that just about anyone who has been around this man should be impressed. The staff is well organized, they’re very good at what they do, they’re professional and they’re great with the kids. I know my boy loves it. He gets so much out of what they do. They’re structured and they have a perfect schedule for the kids. What I love the most that the others don’t give is their diversity, every day it seems like another surprise and it doesn’t hurt to have those high school and college guys working with them. Both Mr. Franco and Mr. Nappo should be applauded for their work. I totally love this program!!!!!
