What’s Your Game Plan for Success?

We believe you need three key things to succeed on the field or in the classroom:

Aim High

Listen and Practice

Test Yourself

Eddie Perez

Atlanta coach and former player
“If you want to succeed… you’d better have a game plan.”

Vinny Castilla

Colorado coach and former all-star
“Listen to your coaches and your mentors.”

Wilson Ramos

Washington catcher
“Practice; test your skills.”

Alex Wood

Atlanta pitcher
“By practicing hard, listening to teachers and parents, and then testing their skills, kids will achieve great things.”


Understand what skills will be taught throughout the year, chart progress and keep your eye on the goal.
