Baseball USA aims to positively impact the lives of the youth in our community in order to strengthen our leaders of tomorrow. Baseball USA will accomplish this through the game of baseball, developing relationships with area youth, ages nine to thirteen. We use thematic approaches of the game targeting at risk and diverse participants. By developing baseball skills, target youth grow in spirit, mind and body. The development of relationships with these youth through the game of baseball creates a bond of trust and commitment, which allows Baseball USA to mentor these athletes in all facets of their lives (school, faith and family). The objective of this interaction is to establish core values of character, integrity, discipline, respect, accountability and perseverance in participants.
