"I give Peter Caliendo and his international baseball trips my highest personal recommendation. I have known Pete for more than 10 years and he is truly one of the best baseball guys I know in the game. His relationships in international baseball are unparalleled. The baseball trips he puts together in Italy are the best available. They are played against good competition, are held on great fields and the off field activities can't be matched."

    - Mike Pinto, Head Baseball Coach - Southern Illinois Miners

“A quick note of thanks to you for all your efforts in organizing this trip. I know Kyle and the boys had a fantastic time playing and especially interfacing with and enjoying the people of the Dominican!  What a life experience as 15 year olds that they will never forget.  Kyle came home tired, excited, glad to be in the US and also sad he had such a great time with the friendly people he interfaced with and met there.  BTW, he also said you were a "really nice man"!  Anyway, just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for all you did!  Best of luck with the World Baseball Cup!”

“We just can't say enough about what this trip did for the boys.  It was obviously the trip of a lifetime.  Our son, Michael, came back a different person (in a good way!)  Thanks so much for giving these boys such a wonderful experience.  Have a great time in Italy.”

    - Sue and Marty Mullen

“Thanks Pete for the awesome experience.  Danny had a tremendous time (despite being sick most of it) and really enjoyed getting to know the Chicago kids and you.  He will never forget it.”
    - Heidi Maretz

“What a great cultural and baseball experience for myself and the players. It was the most organized international trip I have ever taken. Caliendo Sports did a tremendous job with every detail.”

    - Dave Barnett, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics & Head Baseball Coach

“It was a trip of a life time. I never thought I could ever travel to Europe and play competitive baseball at the same time. It was the best of both worlds”

    - Tom Pruim

“My son Matt and I were fortunate to be invited to Pete Caliendo’s Italy 2005 trip. Pete did an excellent job organizing and arranging the trip. Not only did the boys get to play baseball with great coaches and players, Pete provided a terrific educational experience. He was able to balance art, history and culture with baseball. It really was the trip of a lifetime!”

    - Teri and Matt Allred

“When my grandson was involved, I had the opportunity to see what incredible commitment & energy you gave to young athletes.  It was also a once in a lifetime experience for the whole family.  Your attention to detail including the itinerary, commentary and photos became an album of this experience.  More importantly, everyone, especially my grandson ‘grew’ in his ability to learn how to be a better player, experience the international relationship w/the boys in Japan. 

If I didn’t say it before, once is not enough to thank you for creating this experience for all these young men.  You are one of the ‘unsung’ heroes I have not met, but appreciate.”

    - Roselle Oyer

“The most amazing part about our trip to Italy was learning that when language sets up barriers between people, sports can so easily break them down and allow us to relate and learn about others who we may not have otherwise had the chance to.” 

    - Jackie Kon

“After working directly with Pete for many years, he is among the top professionals in the baseball community.  My personal experience with Pete includes Aruba, China, Italy, and the Czech Republic.  Pete is definitely in the upper echelon of international competition and you would be hard pressed to find anyone that has a more thorough understanding of the international tour experience. You certainly cannot go wrong going with Caliendo Sports International."
