Our goal is to teach baseball the way it's supposed to be played, developing athletes as baseball players, and as people, and exposing players to opportunities to pursue a baseball career in their futures. To achieve this goal, we created a mission statement, vision statement, and keys to success, that will help form the building blocks to a long-lasting travel organization. The building blocks were a two part plan:PART 1: Developing athletes into good baseball players. We take time to work on the fundamentals, and make sure that every player is improving in every aspect of the game of baseball. We are striving to make our players good, all-around baseball players, that can make a positive impact to their respective teams, and their communities. PART 2: Showcase athletes to give them opportunities to play college baseball. We want to give our players as many opportunities as possible to be seen by colleges. To achieve that, we will be playing in showcase tournaments, will be attending showcases free of cost to you, and access to a recruiting profile that will give college coaches the opportunity to connect and reach out with your sons.
