"This was the best trip ever. Playing against these guys really showed me something. The city and the beaches and hotels are beautiful. I loved it. I am coming back." Adrian Cardenas -SS/2B -Team USA 14U - Philadelphia Phillies First Round Draft Selection
"I live in California and I have never see players pitch and run bases like that. They are definitely strong and they play to win. I watched them train, it's very different, but it pays off at game time. It took everything we had to beat them." Hank Conger -C/1B -Team USA 14U -San Diego Padres First Round Draft Selection
"Cuban teams are tough. They seem smarter and more aware of what is going on. Next year I want to come back and do better." David Christensen -RHP/OF -Team Florida 13 U -Colorado Rockies Tenth Round Draft Selection
"Until you have played and coached in Cuba your resume is incomplete. I have coached and instructed in over 20 countries and Cuba is the real deal. They approach the game completely different than we do. Baseball is their life and passion and it shows as soon as they step onto a field. This is my third trip here and I still can't believe what I'm seeing. It's impossible to describe. You have to see it, touch it and feel it first hand. The great thing is that my kids are paying attention and they come home as a more coachable player, with a new found respect for the game ready to learn. All of my players are better because of our trips to Cuba. Cuna is the best. If you are serious about giving your players a real experience, go to Cuba, it's phenomenal. You will never forget it." Manager Mike Adams -Dream Team USA -Florida Pro Prospects

"Cuba was unbelievable. I loved it. It was the best baseball trip I have ever done. I want to go back next year." Chip Stout -OF/LHP -Forest Hill High School
"I have been to Cuba 3 times with Coach Breslin and each trip has been unbelievable. The Cuban players mare the best in the world. They are smart, aggressive, and really, really tough to beat. And afterwards, well, I have medalist of baseball friends there because after the competition they are all smiles and congratulations and curious about me and my life. If you want to play against the best I recommend this trip to any competitive player." Wade Corpi -LHP -Team Florida -Notre Dame
I cannot thank you enough for all of the time you have given our son. I have never seen anyone dedicate more of himself to players the way you have. Most coaches you come to a lesson at 12 and you maybe get 30 min of real lesson time. With you, the lesson was only over when my son accomplished what he was being taught. Wow.... what a dedicated coach. I have even witnessed you go over to a kid that was doing something incorrect and you will spend 20 min with him at no charge just to make sure he does it correct. I wish I would of gotten my son to you a few years earlier..... what a power house he would be. We are still working to reverse all the old bad habits he has developed over the years of incorrect training but you have never given up on him and for that I thank you.
So all i can say is thanks Coach your the best
Update: Joey received a college scholarship to play baseball last year and it appears as though he will be a regular starter this year as a sophomore. Thanks for staying in touch with him and the family and guiding him thru the process as freshmen.
The Jimmy B Baseball Camps paid off big time this weekend in our house. Mike just signed a full baseball scholarship with RENO NEVADA , a Div 1 school this week. ALL THOSE HOURS IN YOUR GARAGE SMACKING BALLS DID THE TRICK. WE MISS YOU VERY MUCH, and wish you continued luck in Florida.
Thanks again for everything.

LOUIS PLAYED FOR A LOT OF COACHES OVER THE YEARS AND NOW AFTER PLAYING COLLEGE BALL, WE CAN SAY THAT YOU WERE HIS BEST COACH EVER. YOU WERE AN INSPIRATION TO HIM ALWAYS AND NO COACH EVER TAUGHT HIM AS MUCH AS YOU DID OR HAD THE PATIENCE AND CARE FOR HIM AS YOU DID. HE LOVED PLAYING FOR YOU. GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALWAYS.

COACH JIMMY ,
AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE , THERE ARE SOME GOOD COACHES AROUND, BUT NO ONE IS BETTER AT TEACHING THE GAME OR GETTING PLAYERS TO SUCCEED THAN YOU ARE.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A COACH PREPARE HIS TEAM BETTER THAN YOU DO. YOU GET MORE OUT OF YOUR PLAYERS THAN ANY COACH I HAVE EVER SEEN. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR MY SON WADE AND OUR FAMILY OVER THE YEARS. AND OF COURSE THE 3 TRIPS WE ALL MADE TO CUBA TOGETHER WERE UNBELIEVABLE!

CHRISTOPHER IS NOW PLAYING AT LSU ON A FABULOUS BASEBALL AND ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP. HE WAS DRAFTED BY THE TAMPA BAY RAYS, AND WAS AWARDED 2008 PALM BEACH POST AND SUN SENTINEL FLORIDA HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER OF THE YEAR. HE WAS 11-0 AS A SENIOR AT PARK VISTA AND HELPED HIS TEAM GO TO THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. HE BECAME A NATIONALLY RANKED PLAYER SOUGHT AFTER BY MANY. THIS WAS AN UNBELIEVABLE JOURNEY FOR ALL OF US AS A FAMILY just like you said it would be. BUT, AS HIS MISSION IS TO HAVE A LONG CAREER IN THE BIG LEAGUES, NONE OF THIS HAS GONE TO HIS HEAD. HE KNOWS HOW MUCH WORK LIES AHEAD IF HE WANTS SUCCESS at the next level. WE ALL KNOW THAT HE WAS ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU WERE ABLE TO TEACH HIM ABOUT APPROACH, STRATEGY, COMPOSURE, DISCIPLINE, SACRIFICES AND BY GIVING HIM A POLISHED SMOOTH AND POWERFUL PITCHING DELIVERY. BUT, MORE THAN THAT, YOU TAUGHT HIM HOW TO ANALYZE AND UNDERSTAND THE NUANCES OF THE GAME, SO THAT HE CAN ANALYZE, EVALUATE AND IMPROVE HIMSELF EVERY DAY. HOW VALUABLE IS THAT? COACH......YOU WERE HIS PITCHING COACH FOR 6 YEARS AND YOU DELIVERED BIG TIME AND MORE. I NOW ENTRUST MY YOUNGEST SON, MATT TO YOU FOR THE NEXT 6 YEARS.

Coach Jimmy completely changed my baseball career. I started as a RHP barely able to hit 80 and had several mechanical flaws that would have led to Tommy John Surgery, with Coach's help I'm regularly in the mid 80s with potential to go further and my mechanics are a lot cleaner.
He is one of the smartest coaches I have worked with and I would recommend him as a coach to any player. Also, when he mentions the Dominican Republic, which he will, go! It's one of the best experiences you will have as a player and as a person.
