The Hawks GOLD organization was voted as a "Top 100" program in the nation according to "Youth Baseball Magazine". With 30,000 baseball teams in the USA this is quite an accomplishment. This rating is due to the culture HG creates with positive coaching, 2nd to none training and instruction and impressive results on the field. HG earned a 1st place finish at every age group in the KVBSA league in the 2018 season. As a program, our teams won 5 state championship titles (8U, 9U, 10U, 11U & 13U) and 5 National Championship titles (8U, 10U, 11U & 12U). Several HG teams are rated the top team in the state of Michigan and many of our teams are rated in the "Top 10" in the country.
