The People Who Make Us Amazing

Nicholas Steele


The Edwardsville Post 199 Black Sox team wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Mr. Steele, who oversees our strategy and advises on the best course of action. Mr. Steele has over 25+ years of Military experience that helps him with training and developing players.  Mr. Steele. advises on all facets of baseball training to include strength and conditioning, hitting, and pitching to ensure that all programs being offered are of the highest quality. Nicholas works consistently to create and maintain synergy between all facets of Black Sox training to deliver a complete youth and high school baseball experience. Nicholas works with players at all levels helping to develop the mental side of baseball along with leadership skills that will allow them to be successful at all levels of play.
