Joe Vaskas - 2007 Diamond Award Winner Island Tress HS - League lV Player of Year

“In order to achieve a county championship the Island Trees Bulldogs, myself included, needed to train hard.  Performance Factory, run by Joe Francisco, helped us get there.  It is without a doubt one of, if not the best training facility on Long Island for both baseball and softball.”


Rob Finneran - 2007 League A-I Player of Year Garden City HS - .437 10*HR 44*RBI* Led Long Island

“After working with Joe Francisco I noticed a significant difference in my power and bat speed.  The concepts taught at Performance Factory are simple and they make it easy for every player to take their skill to the next level.  Thanks to Performance Factory I went from being an All-Conference player to an All-State, All-Long Island and Conference MVP.”


Graig Lauricella - 2007 League ll Player of Year Plainedge HS - Set 4 Career Offensive Records

“Since working with Joe during mid-season of my junior year, I have seen a huge increase in my batting average along with a tremendous jump in my power numbers.  Unlike other hitting instructors, Joe never changed my swing, but rather corrected the flaws.  His attention to details helped me shorten my swing and allowed me to drive the ball better to the gaps."
