We believe that baseball is a game, and games are supposed to be fun. The sport of baseball has been losing athletes at an alarming rate for since the early 2000’s. Games aren’t the problem. Most all athletes love wearing the uniform, competing on the field, and hurrying to the snack bar afterwards. It’s practice where we lose kids, and so the  DC philosophy is to assist coaches to make practice more fun. If the the volunteer coach, dedicating his or her time, sweat, and money, is fulfilled… those kids are going to thrive!
