Samford Baseball Testimonial 

Campbell University – Justin Haire Testimonial

“I had scouted Sam Marsonek since his senior year of high school in 1996 all the way through the end of his professional career. The transformation I saw from a careless young man to one of the most caring men I know is astounding. This opportunity that Sam is providing to young men will be invaluable not only on the baseball field to develop their talents, but also developing them to be men who will have proper values in life. I am proud to put my name behind Sam and his tremendous team of men at Baseball Country.”

– Damon Oppenheimer VP Scouting NY Yankees


“I have been exposed to Sam Marsonek both professionally and personally. His commitment to the development of youngsters both as players and young men is second to none. The vision he has for Baseball Country is extremely exciting to see unfold.”

-Lou Pinella MLB player/manager


“Our sons have played under Coach Sam for years and been involved in the ministry work he leads as well. He has helped both move on to play Division I baseball, one at USF and the other at Baylor, but he’s helped them much more than on the field. He has helped them grow tremendously as young men and servant leaders.”

-Doug Gilcrease Tampa Bay Buccaneers Chaplain


“Sam Marsonek is a visionary and he has great plans to help young men through Baseball Country. I’m confident in his ability to succeed with his vision and to continue to impact both local and international players.”

-Landy Faedo Head Baseball Coach, Alonso HS
