About Us

The Reds organization was founded in 2005 by Steve Hanson with a vision of providing year-round baseball instruction with a high level of competitive play during the season.


In 2020 Bobby Kuntzendorf (@bobbykuntz3) became the new President of the Northern Illinois Reds.  Bobby is a former NIU Pitcher, a pitching instructor and the 16u head coach.  Bobby has coached since he finished his collegiate career and brings with him a lot of first-hand experience with high level baseball.  Bobby’s goal is to develop committed players and provide as many opportunities to play after high school as possible.


The summer of 2020, as part of the effort to further develop the Reds Organization and it’s athletes, Bobby brought in as co-owner and Vice President, former Reds coach Joe Grimaldi.  Bobby and Joe immediately began work on building a new home and name for the Reds organization.  The Northern Illinois Reds became the Reds Baseball Academy.  In November of 2020 Bobby and Joe completed construction of the Reds Baseball Academy indoor training facility located at 111 W. Hydraulic Ave. in Yorkville Illinois.  


The Reds Baseball Academy (RBA) facility is roughly 8000 square feet in total that is split for dual use.  The baseball side of the facility is 5000+ square feet of turf containing 2 - 70 foot and one 55-foot retractable batting cages that allows for not just conventional batting practice but the ability to hit against live pitching.  Retracting the cages allows for a wide range of throwing and defensive practice uses.  The physical training side of the facility is over 2500 square feet that is dedicated to physical development of RBA athletes containing a complete weight training facility.  The RBA indoor training facility is owned and operated by the Reds Baseball Academy.
