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!
