About the Author

Ron Filipkowski has coached the "Meteors" travelball teams from 2002 through 2011. He started his first team when his oldest son was nine years old and continued to coach that team until his boys were ready to start high school after their 14U year. Ron then started over with a new Meteors team in 2007, when his third son was eleven years old.

Ron compiled a 640-217 record in tournament games. His teams have won 53 travelball tournaments and six state championships in in Florida.

The Meteors were ranked in the top 25 in the nation by Travel Ball Select for four consecutive years, and were ranked Number One in the country in 2010. Ron was awarded 13U National Coach of the Year by Travel Ball Select.

All of the players from Ron Filipkowski's first Meteors team started for their high school teams. Twelve of these players have signed full baseball scholarships to major Division I programs like the University of Florida and the University of Miami. One player was drafted in the third round of the 2010 MLB draft and several other players are professional prospects for the 2011 MLB draft, with one player projected to go in the first round.
