As a program, our goal is to glorify Jesus Christ through the game of baseball. We want to honor Him by the way we play the game, the way we conduct ourselves on and off the field, our effort in the classroom, and with our attitudes in all aspects of life. Through baseball, we are working to develop life skills and teaching individuals to excel within the team concept.
Our goal is to develop baseball players. More importantly, however, we want to develop strong Christian men. Throughout the course of the season, we will be emphasizing several character traits. Some of which include
- work ethic,
- community service,
- mental toughness, and
We believe in giving our all every time we step onto the field, striving to get better every single day. Through baseball, we will experience both successes and failures, and our goal is to learn from and respond positively to both.
We also want to emphasize the team aspect of this great game. Each individual can choose to make the team better or worse. We must come together as a family, with each person fulfilling his role so that the whole team benefits. I Corinthians 12 talks about each part of the body having a specific purpose. Without all of those parts working together, the body cannot function to the best of its ability. We want to stress that every player brings necessary elements to the team as a whole.
Baseball is a game that should be both competitive and enjoyable. It is an awesome tool that can be used to develop young men into future leaders of their homes, careers, churches, and much more.
As coaches, we are trying to do the best we can to build a competitive program that honors Christ and represents Him in all we do. We will strive to have the best interest of your sons in mind at all times, and will be focused on strengthening their relationship with Christ and their teammates.
At the varsity level, the ultimate on-the-field goal is to win a State Championship. In order to do this, we will put the team on the field that gives us the best chance of accomplishing this goal. As a coaching staff, we will try to put players in situations that will give them and the team the best chance to be successful.
