” The culture and foundation of the Knights is the first thing I appreciate. Its built on playing the game the right way with passion and competitiveness. The organization was built from phenomenal baseball people that has translated into great players” 

Zack Zulli

” We absolutely love watching all the Knights Knation age groups. They know how to play the game and are coached by fantastic people with an advanced knowledge of the game. In recruiting, knowing what you’re buying is so important. We know when we get a player from the Knights we are getting a great kid, from a great family, who has an advanced work ethic and has been held accountable at the highest of levels.”

In my 25 plus years in baseball I have seen amateur organizations come and go. What the Knights have done is methodically grow in size and scope into a National brand without losing it’s family small town touch. Every player and family member feels like they are a part of something special.  Jack, Jimmy and the whole staff take a personal interest in finding ways to help each player reach his true potential on and off the field. The Knights networking throughout High School and College baseball is vast and growing. This organization has your son’s best interest at heart and in a way that makes me feel the game is still in my backyard.

I have great respect for Jack Cressend and his program. Jack has achieved at the highest levels as a player and as a professional scout. And by an extension of his background, Jack has instilled that level of experience with his coaches and players."

Sean Duncan

Owner - Prep Baseball Report

”I’ve known Jack Cressend for a long time from his days as a college coach and MLB scout and remember when he started the Knights program. Jack has a tremendous amount of respect in the baseball industry so when we started the Marucci Founders’ Club we knew we wanted to work with him and the Knights. Their incredible growth and evolution into one of the premier travel baseball programs in the country is a testament to Jack and the coaching staff he has involved in their program. Their growth has also been bolstered by partnering with the top high school programs and affiliates throughout the southeast. We enjoy the relationship we have with the Knights program and look forward to it continuing in the future.”

Knights Knation is always exciting to be around. A hustle culture built on hard work first is often hard to come by. The energy with which they play the game and the professional foundation of selflessness combined with individual achievement is why their players are successful. It’s fun to have them with us

Knights Knation is an organization I’ve been familiar with for a long time. From recruiting their players as a college coach to working with them now as a Tournament Director with Perfect Game. As a Coach I knew I was getting first off a tough but talented player who could make our team better. As a Tournament Director I know I’m getting talented and tough teams to make our tournaments better! It’s been exciting to see the transition from the Louisiana Knights to Knights Knation as the Organization continues to grow. Jack Cressend, Chad Raley, and Jimmy McCarthy are always first class. Love seeing the Green and Baby Blue at our Events.
