About us

Jack Kruger, Founder


Hey, it's Jack.

My only goal with this page is to show you that we (Baller Builder) are not a scam.

It's crazy that I even need to write all of this, but the collegiate athletic recruiting process is littered with untrustworthy, unreliable people trying to make a quick buck. We do things differently here.

We're not run by "well connected" (but actually not connected) travel coaches. We're not run by a "former recruiting director" who is out of touch with the current system and generation. We're not run by some super-dad-coach-of-the-year who needs to hang up the clipboard.

We're run by me, Jack - a professional baseball player who has failed and succeeded in the exact same recruiting process you're in right now.

Please read my credentials below.

It's vital that I earn your trust, and prove to you that Baller Builder is capable of delivering on the promises we make to you.

Jack's story in a nutshell


High School




Professional Baseball

I've been to dozens (if not hundreds) of tournaments. I've sent hundreds of emails. I've been through the recruiting process twice (high school & junior college). I've been awarded dozens of D1 scholarships.

I've played in the Pac-12 (University of Oregon). I've played in junior college (Orange Coast College). I've played in the SEC (Mississippi State University). I've had a scholarship taken away. I've been 4th on the depth chart (catcher). I've been named to the First-Team All SEC team.

I was drafted in 2016 by the Los Angeles Angels. I'm a 2x minor league all-star. I made my MLB debut with the Angels in 2021. I was claimed off waivers by the Texas Rangers in 2021.
