Father, Son and Brother
Father and Son Catcher
Michael and Chris (mom)
AustinBaseball.Org has been helping area youth since last Fall. Michael couldn’t afford cleats to even try out for his high school team. Austin Baseball stepped in and not only got him some cleats, but helped train him so that he could make his high school team. AND he did.
Another situation came when the East Side Memorial HS didn’t have a field to play on and practices were quite unsafe. Austin Baseball came in and helped work the field with the pitcher’s mound, home plate area, and helped cut the base paths. Coach Eckert was a tremendous help. Last year their team won just 1 game out of like 19. This year, the team won like 7 games and it is just going to get better.
Anytime a player can play with their Father, we’ll that’s a moment that will never be forgotten. On any given Sunday Austin Baseball will help 3-6 kids to become better players and 3 to 5 play along with their Dad. It is just AWESOME!
This reminds of the time that Ken Griffey and Ken Griffey Jr played in the same outfield they hit back to back home runs!
A lot more to come so stay tuned for more baseball news. If you have a story or news submit to Frank T., Austin Baseball.Org, P O BOX 170114, Austin, TX 78721 or call at 512 736 4400
And remember that we are playing every Sunday, so come out and watch us play America’s past time!
AustinBaseball.org, helping area youth.
In Austin, the cost to play baseball has become so expensive that the average player has little chance of playing beyond Little League with an even lessor chance of being able to attend clinics or training camps. This is where Austin Baseball comes in, who’s vision is to provide help to those who want to play baseball, keep playing baseball (at all levels), and help build their character through team building skills such as team work, moral character, family and community values, leadership skills, discipline, physical fitness, courage, loyalty and patriotism. Help in the form of providing uniforms, cleats, baseballs and bats, gloves, hats and one-on-one training.
Our coaches, managers and experienced players will be the heartbeat of our organization who are willing to share their valuable experiences and serve as role models and mentors to further enhance a positive baseball experience.
Through the game of baseball, our managers, players and visiting dignitaries (former college and pro players) area youth will be able not only to play the game-but learn to play baseball the right way and for the right reasons.
As a non profit, Austin Baseball will be funded through donations (time, money and expertise), through the sale of two inventions where 35% of the sales will go toward funding Austin Baseball, and through the sale of a book titled, “5 Things it takes to win in baseball” where again 35% of the sales will go toward Austin Baseball.
Whether you are a coach, player, former player, umpire or involved in baseball in any way and want to help, please contact founder frank t at 512 736 4400 for details.
Help Us!AustinBaseball.org is all donation based, so if you have any equipment that you want to donate, bats, baseballs, gloves, catchers equipment, hats, cleats or money, contact us here.
